    Putting a 4.6 in it would be like putting lip stick on a pig.
    Some people want the classiness of driving a fine Ford but in the effort to stay within "budget" they go cheap with the drivetrain and put in some brand X stuff.

    CM- you are becoming a cantankerous old man..lol. I always figured you as more of a purist. But it seems this car has blown your skirt up. Never figured you for being into crossdressers. Lol

    I felt your steely stare from afar.

    I am really a run what you have kind of guy in the end. If you have a javelin in the garage and a 4.6 on the floor.....a welder and some skills make it happen. Just be ready for some along the path.

    We have built (helped) a few odd balls over the years. My big deviation was BB chevy's into Poncho's. They slip right in between the fenders with just a bit of tweaking here and there. Starters ate opposite sides as are the radiator necks. A wire here and there. Chevy headers. Most everything else lines right up.
    65 Goat I mentioned up thread with the 3 deuce 389 got this treatment. I believe we had to move the K-frame mounts or something like that but man that was so long ago. 427 3 deuce 435 HP unit dropped right into the hole. Thing was a beast after that.
    Same with the 78 TA with the turd 403 Olds engine. What a boat anchor. Same thing. Out with the Olds and in with the BB Chev. T-400 car. Still ran like a scalded dog by comparison. Pretty wild opening the hood and seeing 3 deuces. No it was not a vette engine but I found the intake and swapped it on. Put the same cam in the thing and it had the big valve square ports on it.

    I helped a friend swap a 455 Buick S-I into a 4 door Olds gutlass once. He had the car. His dad gave him the engine/trans. We had a welder and some skills. That thing was dangerous fast. Drums on all 4 corners and small block suspension......"Yowza" what a hoot to pilot.

    If you build it you will drive it...

    Thanks for being a good sport.....

    I've done some of the same type of GM swaps. I usually ended having to cut out the riveted motor mount seats on the frame and use the matching motor mount type onto the frames. Usually holes already in the frame for the "unifit" system GM used.
    Never do anything you wouldn't want to explain to the paramedics.

    The TA (Firebird) was actually the easiest one to do.

    Roll out the sub-frames and do the work in the open.

    I did that before I had the place to do the work like that. We did it in a friends driveway in front of the garage with an "A" frame and a chain fall. I had lost most of my stuff in a Divorce and had not yet fully rebounded.

    Here's the most hot rod thing I'll be able to do for quite some time. Had to piece together an exhaust for my beater kid hauler after the flex pipe and hanger wire a previous owner used rotted out. Couldn't let the sticker go to waste.

    Hey there’s no shame. Minivans are awesome!

    Don't practice until you do it right; practice until you can't do it wrong.
