Finally bought another 5.0 to replace my 1991 GT that was taken by Hurricane Katrina. The car is 100% bone stock with chrome pony wheels and 180k on the clock. The AOD is DOA, so it starts but doesn't go anywhere. Thinking about dropping a Terminator Cobra or 5.4 Navi engine in it. I bought a junkyard twin turbo kit for a 5.0, so may fab up new pipes for a modular and go with that instead. Will remove the stock engine and tranny soon and post up the engine build on my website. What do you guys think?

build a Stroker 351W with two turbos, and stick a built AOD in the tunnel. Then make it quiet as hell, the perfect sleeper. exept for the turbo whine. that car looks really good though!! keep us updated.

Looks good. Bummer the tranny is shot but that can be fixed. I'd suggest a stroked Windsor unless you just want that "dare to be different" element because squeezing in a Terminator engine or a 5.4 in will take some serious mods.

I didn't actually get it from the junkyard, it's just a home-fabbed kit I got from a dude who was selling it off his 1991 GT. It's not a specific kit like Hellion or whatever. It's just some guy with a welder who fabbed up the pipes and exhaust manifolds and added the intercooler and 2 Garrett T25 turbos from a 300ZX. It has standard T03/04 flanges so I can put bigger turbos in there if need be.

Nice, that will make some power. I cant wait to see what kind of beast you build. I am just a sucker for pushrod power, coupled with hairdryers.
