71 Cougar XR7 with 4.6 modular V8 restomod
Couple pics of the 4.6 engine and interior or my Dads 71 Cougar. Interior is from a 05 Mustang GT. If any of you Mustangers are looking to do a conversion like this the engine and interior pretty much fit like a glove and look cool. No shock tower mods made. Rear seat would fit in a 7173 Mustang coupe nice.

Pretty cool . How much modifying did it take to get the seats in?

Front seats - pretty much bolted the original seat tracks to the new seats. Rear seats - had to make a frame for the bottom seat to bolt to. The back of the rear seat pretty much nothing. The back of the rear also folds down like an access door which is pretty cool.

Nice work!

How's the headroom with the later seats?

wicked awesome restomod cougar, I have a 72 coupe with a 5.0 efi motor and I adopted the same modern upgradification attitude ur car has. I bet it runs nice and smooth and is really a blast to drive.

Sweet, did you notch the shock towers to get that engine in there?Smile

Engine fit in without notching shock towers. Just as much room as the 351C we pulled out.

Good to know. I must measure the towers of my 75 Falcon compared to the Mustang. It must be more narrow as I know you can't fit a modular anything between them in the Falcon without notching. Everything else suspension wise on our Falcons are pretty much the same.

Anyway, really cool you did that, can't be too many modular engines in these beasts out there.

What's your opinion on the performance gain from the swap?

We bought an oil pan with the sump swapped out. I can recall the brand but can find out. Like $150.

Nicely done! Dangit I was told the towers would have to be notched for the 4.6 so I found an older 5.0 and installed it.
