It's easy to say you shouldn't dwell on the past, but it really is just words. I would go with the cummins ram or the 6.4L powerstroke ford. My 6.4L is a brick shithouse, I can't kill it, however, they don't mod the same as a cummins which will give you big numbers for bolt-on mods. You can put a lot into a 6.4L and only be making 500hp/800ft-lb. If you're set on modding an oil-burner, look for a 05/06 24V 5.9L cummins...best diesel to mod by far... and less emissions to deal with.

So you're able to salvage the motor and a few other things from the '04? That's not bad, would love to see a hemi powered 'stang

UPDATE: the truck will be a total loss. im waiting on all the paperwork to make it here, sign it ship it back and all that good stuff. i have been looking at some nice 5.9 cummins here reciently, the nice part is it looks like i will end up with a lower payment by the end of everything. and have a hemi powered mustang to boot. cant beat that deal. with a stick.

How about finding a Dodge Dart for a hemi build up? You can still find them fairly cheap, light and fast and best of all MOPAR. Fox body Mustangs are as common as dog poop. A hemi powered Dart!

i see your point. but im not one to do something normal. im going to add graphix to it that read "built by ford powered by mopar" and it will also have "buy a hybred i used up your gas." i realy wanna disturb everyone with the car. my neighbors will hate it. something about fireing up open headers at 4:00 in the morning to go to work lol.

it will be fast and unique, and probably make a bunch of people say "why did you distroy a mustang with a mopar motor?" or the opisite "why did you put that nice motor in a ford?" its just for fun.

Well what ever you do I know It will be scarry fast If that set up made your truck hit 12's Imagine what it will do with a 2,500 to 2,800 pound car compared to your 5,000 pound truck.
