Nope and nope.

Go through and read all the hints. @LILCBRA can go read his PMs for extra help. There's one engine I haven't said it wasn't and have hinted that it is repeatedly, and ya'll have been dancing all around it.

Well, looking back at the PMs, I have had the 32v in mind since that discussion. So since that's where my mind's been since then I'm stumped. I was almost positive it was gonna be the Mach 1 4.6......

Other things I'd like to do are:​


-Junkyard F150 Coyote Swap (I've estimated that at $10k in parts alone going with a new Tremec manual trans, and only farming out the dyno-tuning).​

This.

That parts estimate got a whole lot cheaper when that Tremec 3650 got donated to the project.

Depending on which way I was go go about it... If that were the plan, and I'm not saying it is because it's super secret... a full, running pull-out from Mars is $6k, then I buy a flywheel and clutch, rebuild the tremec, figure out driveshaft and cooling system fitments... And still have to figure out a fuel system.

Or I can get just an engine from LKQ, and buy Ford's computer and harness, etc...

Triton truck v8? I don't know ford newer engines well enough I guess because it looks like we've covered every displacement of the last 20 yrs

Unless its some weird volvo or jag ford-ish v8

No.


5.2 flat plane gt 350 engine?
If I could afford that, I wouldn't waste it on a II, and I LOVE IIs!

So... We have eliminated:

289, 351, 4.6 2v, 4.6 4v, 5.4, 5.8 Trinity, 3.4 Yamaha, all Jag and Volvo variants, 5.2 Voodoo, Aluminator, 4.6 3v that have been suggested, and there's one engine that's been suggested that I didn't.

We've established that is Ford, and not a Toyota or LS, and isn't electric, and is a V8.
