This is not a formal summary of the article as much as just my recall from reading the article...some may interpret it differently: The author suggests using a new front subframe for a swap in an older car and give an estimate for a cost of $20,000 to have the complete swap done using a new motor and all associated recommended upgrades...they seem to be talking about swaps for 60's cars up to ? They say the engine may not fit between the spring towers in the engine compartment of many older Fords, but I did not see a specific width spec. They also say that junkyard engines when available are about the same price now as new. One of the complexities they discuss is that the computer has an internal hardware anti-theft system not compatible with older non-Fords and those not designed for the engine. From what they say in the article there is apparently not yet a standardized way to circumvent this issue. Doesn't look like anything that is realistic in my world. KF4sign (Warren)

It is specified in the article. 29.05" first page right before the side bar on the comparsion sheet. It will fit in an mn12. It will need a hood but should fit with some money.

oh it'll fit alright. Fitting it isn't that much of an issue as the rest of the things like exhaust/power steering/wiring, etc.
Agreed. With enough money anything can be done. Just need somebody with the time to figure it out.

The Petty swap doesn't count. Anything can "fit" when you're cutting and fabbing.
This.
