Well said Charles. I mean, he did ask about putting a BBF in a "88 Camaro".... lighten up dude!!! What did you expect?? You did not like the picture? That's like me being new on a Trekkie forum & asking if anyone is selling Darth-Vader dolls or something!!! LOL!!!

Let me ask you a legitimate question... WHY?? BBF's cost more to build. The 88 Chevy Camaro is nowhere close to accepting that engine. You would have enough work converting it over to a BBC... let alone a BBF!! the cross member/oil pan, possible firewall issues, suspension, trans tunnel, what transmission?? Ford too? The list goes on & so does the cost. In the end, you pay more & to get what gain???? The gain is you spent a lot of money to have a Ford motor in a Camaro. Good Luck.

Im just gonna be honest here. No matter how good of a job you do it's not gonna be worth what a Ford car would be worth with a Ford motor or even a Chevy motor. BBF in a Chevy is just to odd. Not even a die hard Ford guy would want it and NO CHEVY guy would buy it. Maybe, just maybe you could pass it off to a Mopar guy that doesn't know any better. :shock: LOL. JUST KIDDING , but it is the truth.

Do you already have this BBF, is that why you want to go this route, or do you just want to be different?

This is true! Seems like there are a ton of people out there putting Chevy motors in mustangs. So I have a 429 laying around along with a 3rd Gen. WHY NOT?
