so the 392 currently has no plans of where its going to end up. im open to suggestions? it was originally being built to go into a box ranger backed by a glide with a set of highports. might still stuff it in a ranger... maybe in the gen 1... maybe in a boat.... maybe in the mustang...

suggestions?

It says in your signature you have a '95 Lightning...sounds like a potential match to me. Is there a reason the two wouldn't make good couple?
its an option, its just 100% stock currently. if i do go that route it would be a very long project since its going to start needing some rust repair soon

I totally get that.

My '95 GT is virtually stock — with the exception of minor things like air filter, plug wires, and the most extensive mod: adjustable strut mounts because the factory mounts wouldn't adjust the alignment back to stock specs any longer. I have options with it, but I also love the car as is, so it's not a slam dunk decision to make any changes even if it would improve some things like more bottom end in the power band — which it could definitely use.

Still, a 392 is a neat engine to put somewhere. I can see why you're tempted to find something to stuff it in.

I think it would be a nice street motor for the lightning. Or like you said just bag it on the stand for a later project.

Guess I should have read the previous post. Throw some old cast iron heads on there. They should work fine lol. You should just give it to me. I’ll even come pick it up for you. :)
