Please let the Mustang fanboy in me speak for just a minute. What the actual hell is wrong with this guy. Who the hell puts a Toyota mill inside a classic Mustang convertible? I want to punch this guy. My butt hurts. Ok, fanboy mode off.
As a car enthusiast I think this freekin rocks! I love seeing bastard engine swaps. That means engines from one manufacturer put into another manufacturers chassis. This just makes the ricer in me squeal with joy.
It makes a respectable 443rwhp which is almost sacrilege for 2J fanboys. However, that much horsepower in a classic drop top is bound to be fun and is good enough to fry a couple of tires every once in a while. Besides, aside from the big shiny intercooler hanging out in the grille, who will know while the hood is closed?
I guess once you rev it up a bit a discerning enthusiast will know what’s going on. The average enthusiast may never suspect the treachery at foot. 8/10, would bang, elbows not too pointy, boobs not too booby.
