Just thought I would reintroduce myself here again as I did on another G Body site. (yes, I copied and pasted my introduction from there to here to save all of the typing) I used to be a member here years ago but haven't been active in years so my account was purged and I had to resign up again. The last time I was a member here I had a 1978 Malibu with a 468 BBC & a TH-400. The car was a blast until I broke the rear end and for whatever reason I decided to sell it rather than fix it, sadly I didn't need to but sold it out of a fit of frustration. Well that was a decision that I would come to regret for years. I then bought an 87 GN and kept that car for about 8 years and sold it a few years ago. In the moments that I didn't own a G Body I had a couple F-Bodies and numerous Foxbody Mustangs, a 2001 Mustang and eventually a 2013 Shelby GT500.

I work on and build all types of cars for people that want to go fast but more recently I've found myself working on a ton of 2011+ Mustangs and have built a bunch of 9 & 10 sec cars for people. I still own a 93 Foxbody (hatch) with a twin turbo SBF that runs bottom 9's. I also bought another 93 Foxbody (notch) a few years ago to build into a 10sec daily driven v6 (from a 2014 Mustang) but that project snowballed into a twin turbo 1600+hp Coyote swap.

Well remember the part where I said I've regretted selling my 78 Malibu?? Well now I want to do something way out in left field and I'm sure I will catch a ton of $hit from a lot of people but.... I want to put the twin turbo Coyote engine that was intended for my Foxbody into a G-Body of some sort... I have a virtually brand new (380 mile) Coyote out of a wrecked 2016 Mustang GT with a 6R80 trans that I would like to put into the G Body. I've built a ton of Coyote's for other people and have seen what they can do and I think I'm ready to swap one into a G Body because I don't think it has ever been done before.

I do all types of fab work, plumbing and electrical wiring in anything from daily drivers to all out race cars to Trophy trucks that compete in Baja and every other off road race to UTV's and as of recently very large * expensive boats so the very large majority of the build will be done by me. I also build complete fuel systems for Buick's along with a lot of CNC parts for Buick's and various other cars too from fuel pump block off plates, trans brake switches, exhaust flanges with internal wastegate pucks, fuel pumps/senders, fuel line kits (teflon lines with crimped ends, I have an XRP crimping machine along with an Eaton Weatherhead machine so there's not many fittings that I can't crimp), shifter handles, various block off plates, custom one off parts, CNC exhaust tips for several different model UTV's/SxS's, production run exhaust & down pipes as needed. There's not much I can't do, except paint & body which I have no desire to do.

If anyone knows of a good, clean, straight & rust free roller anywhere near the Phoenix area or surrounding states feel free to reach out to me either in this thread or thru pm.

Welcome back! You'd have quite the conversation/argument piece on your hands if you pulled that swap off. I know a guy who had a BBF in a Monte Carlo. He had the car, had the motor....so why not? It looked nice and was fast! Of course, it would have been faster with a BBC in it....LOL....couldn't resist. Good luck with your project!

I've noticed that with fox body mustangs its actually easier to put a chevy in them than a Ford. The chevy's even fit better. I've done SBC, BBC and LS into fox bodies. I'm kind old school and lately was considering a 460 BBF into a G-body. Your way ahead of me on the coyote swap and it sounds like you know what you are doing. Welcome to the board. We need more guys like you. Do you have a website for the parts you sell?

Thanks for the kind greetings!

I got lucky and found out that a buddy of mine was ready to sell his super clean roller Buick GN project so I bought it!! It doesn't have an engine or trans which is perfect for what I'm wanting to do with it. The paint is in rather decent shape now and will look great with a cut & buff. Our other buddy that owned the car originally was starting to pull it apart to repaint the car and turn it into a "show car" but lost interest in the project after he blew turbo v6 so he sold it to my buddy who eventually lost interest in it too. Guess it was meant to be for me to own it ;) I've already caught a bunch of scrap from the few Buick people that I've told about the project so I'm already accomplishing part of my goal, lol.

Prairiehotrodder, yes I do have a site but the gal that was running it is now going to MIT full time and hasn't had the time to finish it up so I will be going thru it myself in the next few months and updating it with my parts, products and pictures of projects I've done & worked on. You can bookmark the link for now and I'll update when it's actually fully live and working. www.innovative-parts.com

Here's a few pics of the car. I've had it for several weeks now but have been roo busy working on other people's cars to get to my own. I'm hoping to try sliding the engine and trans in next week for test fitting bit I'll have to see how the week goes first. I'll post those pics once I get to that point. Here's the pics
