I believe 22GT recently posted a list of everything that needs to be changed to convert a 6 cylinder Mustang to a V8 and the list was very long. It would be easier and cheaper to buy a completely rusted out donor car that it would be to try to locate all of the required parts individually.

That is what I thought, then maybe I just put a wider exhaust and a turbo. :grin2:
