Default Yes! I knew this was floating around somewhere.



Now to find about about it is the question. All I can find is reveiws. I remember reading you can go to somewhere and they will put a 550HP engine in your Five-Hundred and do all those things to make it look like that pic above. If someone could find where I can get this done I would be eternally greateful.

Yes I do know that, I read an article on it somewhere oh, 3 years ago? In Motor Trend I believe. It read that you can take it to some garage and they will make it into a 500 GT-R

Oh so it was a college I thought it was some garage. Thanks for clearing that up. And also for telling me that a GT engine and tansmission isn't cheap, I could find that either.

Again I never said I wanted it right now. I would rather wait a few more years to come up with another meh 20K? I don't know I searched and I saw the numbers 18,542 but I can tell thats not the right price.

not really. the engine doesnt cost that much. its a DOHC 5.4 with a eaton. its nothing crazy in there.

read an article of a shop that swapped one into a 3v mustang body and made it a drag car. it was nice. they are not 20,000$ tho. i know that for shure.
