Well for starts.......that 460 truck motor is gonna continue to run like the truck just in a foxbody unless you minimum change out the camshaft.

If it is EFI you will have to change the computer too or it will really run like a truck!

93' LX hatch, 460 w/150 plate, TH400, 9" w/ 3.60 spool. Best (so far!) of [email protected] 146 mph with 1.40 spinning 60' on steel heads
Been saying single digit coming for 3 years.....guess I finally made it!
