I guess you could always swap LSX heads on to a SBF.

Actually Ford does have something to compete with it.... Its called the Shelby Cobra GT 500!

once i get back from out of the country (leaving jan 2010 coming back feb 2011) i may be putting a LS based motor in my ranger... going to build it to around 5-600 Hp using mostly factory GM parts.... it would be pushed back and lowered, bye bye fire wall.

Im a die hard Ford person and I think the LS series is one of the baddest motors around. Hennessey took the LS9 from the ZR1 and stuck in it a camaro achieving 690hp at the wheels. Guess i'd have to buy stock in Mickey Thompson if I had that setup.

an lsx motor is all i would consider swapping in if i had an older ranger to play around with. i eventually plan on having a mid 90's 2wd reg cab dropped on cobra wheels with a cammed ls1. ftw.
