Same as i do.....

Please respond with facts not speculation.....
Sorry late in this conversation, but yes I totally disagree!! I do not have to lift my motor to remove the headers or install them. I use a Chevy trans with a plate and everything drops right in. In some cases it is much easier to remove the motor trans combo over just the trans. Unless you have a lift and a trans jack for support I can have my motor and trans out in a couple hours and that's including monkeying with the header bolts. That's the longest part of the process. Everything is just like installing a small block.

So will a 429 with a C6 fit in a fox body just droping it in? (without welding)

Once you buy the after market K-member you can put ANYTHING in there including a 454 BB Chevy.

I can not speak from experience on using a C6 im using a TH400 chevy trans. The motor connected to the trans slips right in. I did not have to weld anything! I had to have a transmission cross brace fab because of the trans I chose.

The K-member is the key. Not that expensive either. But not heard of using the 400 though in all of the swap magazines I've read. Not saying it can't be done, just not common.

I bet everyone on this website would love to run those numbers on only 200hp. Imagine if you had 600!

I'm in the process and i have fit the 400 with a fmx trans into a 1980 mustang(i think i'm the first crazy one because everybody told me it don't fit:hihi. The 400 cost me about 2500 to rebuild. I done everything exept the machine work and the cam bearing installation.

The 400 have more part now www.TMeyerinc.com for piston 9.5:1 and aussie head import from australia. My 400(408ci) have a performer 400 intake with 4 barel, aussie head, .030 over tim piston, straight-up timing chain, xtrem energie cam with roller rocker and i have 349hp and 478ft/lbs of torque(dyno sim). I could have 380 hp with a different cam but loose torque. Not bad for a medium mild rebuild.

I could have used the chi 3v head from Tim Meyer but the money was not there. And take a look at the 434 strocker tim also made now for the 400. The aftermarket world just discover the 400 by now. just my 02.
