289-502
does anyone know if it is possible to take a 289 out of a 1967 mustang, and replace it with a 502?

Well that's kind of a generic question now isn't it? You could drop a V-10 from a Viper into a Yugo if you tried hard enough but.....

I assume when you say "502" you mean a big block Chevy. Yes that can and has been done but first do you really want to bastardize an early Mustang like that? Why do you want a "502"? A big block Ford would be an easier conversion. Please, more info on your objective.

No it's not a stupid comment, it's dead on the money. But where there's a will there's a way. I just wonder about superfable's interest in the subject he started. It looks like he disappeared.
