      Anyway, great to see a 780 getting a V8!
      We’re making that 8 mean something

      This 780 has been for sale locally for about a year. I've been thinking about the same swap if the price drops.

      That looks like a nice example. $3250 doesn’t seem unreasonable for that given it’s a B230FT.

      I’d buy it and manual swap it, then do full IPD suspension and better wheels/tires on it. Then add some more boosts.

      For some reason, I always thought ford 5.0's were easier to drop in? Awesome project though!

      They’re smaller, so they do fit in places an LS or small block won’t.

      I couldn’t swap it. There were only just over 150 turbo 4 780s made.

      They fit like gloves



      Too bad I had to move provinces before my friend and I got that buttoned up.
