Hey guys,

I'm new here and I'm in the thick of a 5.4 navi swap into a galaxie. I opened an account cause I was looking for information on motor mounts to get the motor to fit.

The front of the galaxie has a 94 gt front end. I need to know what motor mounts I'd need in order to fit the navi in there. Any suggestions?

here are the pics

Motor was rebuilt by EPM machine in portland. $2100 for a rebuild if you're reusing the rods and pistons. This a slow low cruiser so no need to go forged anything. plus they gave a 7 year 70k warranty on it.

there was a ton of :poo: ass body work done. at a qtr inch of bondo over the whole car. the thing is, it's pretty damn straight to begin with so I dont know why they would dump that much bondo on it. either way I removed it and am in the process of straightening the front fenders now.

I built this adapter for the motor lift plate. best $9 in steel I ever spent.

This will be my official build thread. I opened one on mod forums but not replies on it. my forum manners aren'

t the best. Terrible grammar and I don't hardly reply to questions not directly related to my builds. I'm documenting the build on video and I'm putting together a youtube docuseries when its finished.

Will 4.6 mod mustang mounts work for this application?

Not sure what mounts you need but would like to add Holy Crap this is a neat build.
Alway liked this body style.

You've done a lot of work already it looks. Just grinding the bondo off looks like a lot of work
Well be looking forward to updates.


Hers a couple of cool 63s for encouragement

I think the triton v10 flexplate is a possible option but needs minor mods.
Still trying to get it all straight in my head.

Or maybe
