    Convrting a ford engine to the ls1

    okay.. i know this is an all Gm site but i figured this was kind of a gm question. I have a 1993 Ford mustang i also have a 5.3 Ls1 engine just layin around. So my idea is to make that little 4 banger mustang into a low 12 sec drag car.. i know i need the K member and the front suppension. but thats all i can gather. If you guys have ever done this or know someone who has the help would be much appreciated. plus i live in denver and will need some one to tune it..

    Thanks

    Kyle

    LS 5.3l is a truck engine, not quite an LS1 5.7l but of the same family tree..

    Welcome to LS1.com..

    Not a Ford guy though.

    Extremely popular swap since the mustang is a much friendlier platform to play with, cheap to buy, and tons of aftermarket support helps too.

    I've seen a few of them done around town as of late, but I'm not so sure there are many (if at all) on this site doing it.

    Runnin little son-of-a-guns though when they are finished.

    I swapped the same motor into my 01 Mustang. Pretty easy swap, lots of people have done it. I used a camaro oil pan and others have used the CTSV pan. Made my own motor mounts,trans mount,and headers. Check out LT1swap.com for wiring pinouts and LS1tech.com for other help and advice in the conversions and hybrids section.
