Two Honda/Ford cross-breed WTF Fridays in a row? That’s got to be some sort of strange new record. When Anth shared this K powered Fox Body Mustang on the Build Threads Facebook page I legitimately let out a small laugh at the lunacy of it.
I don’t mean that in a bad way of course, because I love weird and different swaps and this is certainly quite different.
Ford fans, the most devote of Ford fans, probably absolutely hate this car but remember that Fox bodies did come with four cylinders (N/A and turbo) from the factory along with a hoe-hum v6.
The motor for this swap was lifted from a modified RSX with a custom stroker billet crank, R&R aluminum rods, and Wiseco pistons. Add the turbo to the mix you see in the foreground and you are looking at a proven 936 horsepower combination all said and done.
I guess if you’re going to get crazy you might as well go all the way.
With that much power, and the motor set back as far as it is this car could be a serious weapon when it’s finished. TDC has not said what their intentions for the car in the end are, but, I don’t think trailer queen or show pony is in the cards.
If you’re interested take out the TDC Performance Facebook page.
Don’t know what the rest of the car will look like when it’s finished but that engine bay is super clean!
I had an 88 with a 2.3 four cylinder. I would imagine that this engine would be a bit more powerful.
