There's a few videos on you tube of a red dent with a lighting motor. I love the mod motors, from the 4.6 to the 6.8. And I doubt it would be a really difficult swap. I was actually considering using a 5.4 or maybe even a 6.8 but I ended up committing sacrilege and using a 5.7 Hemi.
After I finish my son's truck my wife wants me to restore a falcon for her and then my next project is going to be a 48-56 truck with a 5.4. I haven't seen any mod motors in this body style, but it sounds like a fun project.

Dare to be different... how about a mid-90s Jaguar XJ12? Swap in the V12 and the donor's IFS and IRS.
Is that place up in Redding,Ca still swapping Chevy 350's into Jags, that might be a source for the engines. If I remember correctly, it was a simple swap because Jag used either Turbo 350's or 400's as their automatic. This was in the 80's when I was at Beale AFB
“If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you; May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.” ―Samuel Adams
I'm to the point of being OCD with mashups... Someday I wanna put an SBF and T5z into a Volvo 142 or 144.... a sick brick! It's gotta be 75 or older though due to CA's emissions laws. Older than that and it's fair game.
