D.S.S- PERIOD!

The best I have ever seen, and I can't build them myself any cheaper than what they sell it assembled for. High quality and runs awesome!

Stock means stock guys. Not a built DSS shortblock, etc. This is just gonna drop into my '89. Its keeping stock E7TE heads, intake, etc. It just needs to be stock and run 99.9% of the time as my daily.

You miss the point. I dont want to spend $1499.99 on a shortblock w/ forged pistons when the mustang has no use for them. This stang is never gonna see a blower, let alone H/C/I. Not to mention I have a 10% off coupon for Summit. I'd rather save the few hundred $$$ difference.

Ever think about looking for an Explorer with a 5.0 at a salvage yard? In some cases yard owners don't know the value of these engines to Mustang owners and you could get a complete engine with GT-40 style upper/lower intake, GT-40 or 40P heads for a lot less than what you'd pay for a brand new stock shortblock. If you get one with the P heads all you'd have to do is buy shorty headers for these heads or use longtube headers. Just a thought. What is the car doing or not doing that makes you feel the need to replace the shortblock? Just wondering.

Sounds like your mind is already made up, so why ask everyone's opinion? Buy it from Summit and enjoy it!

after 227,000 miles the shortblock took a crap, so the fox is high and dry in the garage without a motor. im just lazy and dont have the time at the moment and dont want to have it machined, buy all the stuff, and do a rebuild. I just want a stock shortblock I can put the stock heads, intake, etc on, drop it in and drive. All this car is is a daily, no need for a built shortblock, etc.
