    It is quite obvious that you are nothing but a troll trying to get a rise out of some by being argumentative. But to think that by putting a Japanese diesel engine in one of the rarest Mustangs ever built will increase the value proves to me that you are also as stupid as a bag of rocks.

    If rarity alone made cars valuable you would see skyrocketing prices for all kinds of past clunkers. Case in point where the body is the real value of the car, who runs the 1949 Mercury stock? I would argue that the SVO would be more desirable modified as I suggested. You're entitled to differ in your opinion but I would wager most would see things my way, even here among its devotees. Maybe we can take a poll?

    Ouch! I'd hate to hear you say how you really feel about me then If I didn't respect your opinion I wouldn't even address you so keep that in mind with future posts.

    I guess you missed my last remark, in my last reply, in the thread that I have linked below.

    I'm also heartbroken that you might not respond to this post. Personally I think you lack any self-control in that area. That is based on all of your last threads and posts.

    So I'll save you the time of going back to look it up. Also so others can see how disrespectful you are to those who were foolish enough to try and answer your questions. That includes me.

    Personally I think you don't have the skills, or the money, or are even serious about this latest "scandalous" engine swap. You are simply an attention whore looking for an argument. I'm done. Later dude.

    You expected me to respond to the post where you called me a dumbass? I figured you were butt hurt so I let it go. Sorry to break your heart by not engaging in a food fight there. If I weren't serious about this engine swap I wouldn't have spent the time doing the turbo maps. Challenging what a person says when it doesn't make sense to them shouldn't be deemed disrespectful by anyone confident in what they know. Lots of things tug at my money for attention and I'm sure I'm not alone in that but this swap doesn't seem like it would be cost prohibitive. Beside the fuel pump and injectors which would be required for any horsepower jump like this, the cost of a custom mount, some via rerouting/upgrading along with two tune sessions are the costs. You keep the drivetrain, the exhaust, the IC and the turbo. Probably a fifth of the cost of an LS upgrade. What do you estimate to get this done?

    I did look at the 2.3L but the engine is too tall and there are other fit issues.
    Several people have done this swap and it fits great from a height standpoint. The problem is the high pressure fuel pump at the rear that protrudes into the firewall. You can either cut the firewall to make it fit or you can shell out money for a right angle adapter to relocate it.

    I didn't say it couldn't be done but the tiny terror is a better match for the puny SVO stock rear for more than just the fit issues. Torque kills rear ends and gearboxes so you don't want to go over 300ft/lbs with an otherwise stock SVO.
