to the board.
To answer your question ... get rid of the shock towers (install a Mustang II-style front suspension, or maybe struts ...) and these cars can swallow just about anything. One guy here has a 500 Caddy in his. If you go to any kind of big-block, you are going to be fabricating a lot of what you need to get it there.
As shown in the video, height starts becoming an issue, so then you will want a cowl hood or a scoop. I have a 351W in mine and a relatively short intake and the carb is very close to the hood. My air cleaner is in the scoop.
onE Guy has a V10...
NO S**T, a v10...
you gotta love the maverick
Howdie from kansas
wow any pic's of that v-10 i would love to see that thing
Oh wow thats awesome!
I guess you could almost put about anything in a maverick, thats great, thanks allot for the great information. cant wait to drop a bad ass engine in my maverick!
Don't forget the BOSS 429
Oh ****! damn thats crazy cool!
Dose anyone know if that Mav with a viper engines runnin yet?
My guess is it never will, he's been trying to sell it for awhile...
Unless you have fairly good fabrication skills, most of these engine swaps are nothing more than a dream... Not saying that's the case in the Viper Mav as that guy has some mad skills, apparently he's now interested in something else... Of course if you change directions as the wind blows, you ain't gonna get many projects completed either...
now he gave up on selling the viper mav and id asking everyone to fund the rest of the build for him in exchange for some videos of what was done to the car NOT ME Ive got my own car to pay for.
it will definitely be cool to see that car done but not on my dime.
I dont even subscribe to any magazines so I dont spend my money on anything but what I have to rent bills the usual and everything left gets spent on MY car.
Dose any one know if that Mav with a viper is running yet? That's a lot of mods mad stuff I say mad stuff!!!
