Boss transplants

As with most motors, eventually people start to transplant them into other cars. What would most likely be a common transplant (ie body shell) for the Boss motors? I'd like to try a blown boss in an XA coupe if I could.

Re: Boss transplants

It'd be interesting to see what panel mods would be needed (if any) to fit one under the bonnet of an EA.

Re: Boss transplants

The XA coupe would go, and sound better with a blown 351/460

Re: Boss transplants

There was a 1994 Mustang engine in the trading post for cheap, I was jumping until I found it was a 5.0 Windsor, not a 4.6 mod. It would of gone into an XB nicely I reckon.

Re: Boss transplants

an XY with a BOSS 290 would be the one id go, or a put a 4.6L all alloy in a TE cortina

or the ultimate i reckon would be a blown 5.4L in a shelby kit car, could you imagine the power to weight of that thing!
