cobra r conversion

Hi I was thinking about taking a 2000 Mustang GT and converting it to a cobra r as much as I can. Since I can't get the engine from a cobra r I was going to use a Ford crate engine. It is a 5.8 L carberated engine bored to a 392 it has 430 hp and 450ft-lbs of torque. My question is if it will fit if I get the dome hood. And my other question is because the t-56 is only rated to handle 440ft-lbs of torque I was wondering if that is close enough for it to be OK. I would appreciate any help I can get for this question.

big job

That is going to be a hard swap. The '00 GT computer will not work with a Windsor pushrod motor. Of course, I assume you will not use the computer anyway since you are going with a carb. It seems to me the motor will fit under the dome hood (unless you use a hi-rise manifold). Installing that T-56 behind the stroker will not be easy either. Good luck with your project.

It will fit with an aftermarket k-member, as it's no different than fitting it into a 1995 Cobra R... the carb/intake/heads used will determine your hood clearance issues.
