    Default 5.4 Shelby 500 swap

    Looking for guidance on a Shelby swap into a 98 cobra chassis. I am getting the complete engine, wiring, tranny, as well as headers along with all the attachments. The twist is the chassis is a 98 chassis but the top is a 67 fastback. What challenges or additional items do I need to buy.

    The hydroboost need to be cocked to the side a couple of inches.

    You may want to use a K-member and 03 cobra engine mount.

    The oil cooler need to be cut and modified to be used along with the alternator braket or removed and replaced with external oil cooler and aftermarket alternator bracket.

    Connect the power steering lines. You can use a stainless steel braided line.

    Figure out how you want to build your fuel system to support the power.

    Have fun connecting the harness and tuning the engine

    search the forum for similar engine swap there are couple in here that already done it and couple more that's still trying to figure things out and I'm one of the later group

    Good luck

    What block, a 289 Windsor? its an older pushrod motor so you should have very few problems with fit.
