Threw a rod in my engine block, new engine is $4400 + like $1400 for installation. Was just about to sell the thing too. Any ideas suggestions? Anyone want a mustang?

- behind you..
I would check into an used engine from a junk yard they actually have good engines sometimes and they test them for you. It will save a lot of money for you. I have bought a tranny from a junk yard for $84 and it still works great put it in myself. My friend owns a junk yard. What year mustang and condition. My younger brother has a 67 mustang in great condition.

Have a motor built like you said, maybe throw a supercharger on it a try to sell and break even, the supercharger may help it sell and get some more $$$ for it.JMO

Oh mate that sucks, i feel for ya. Why did it throw a rod, was it run in properly? Also was the workmanship all under warrantee? Mate if i had the coin to ship it i would be all over it. Good luck.

Could be a collector - I'd find a place to store it if you're going in to the military and then figure it out at a later date - You might meet some gearheads that like to wrench.

A friend of mine is a Ford mechanic, and apparently there is a conversion you can do that would turn it into a 5.0, and it would be pushin around 380hp. Supposed to be about $3k, so we will see.

pull it apart, might not be as bad as you think. might be able to get a new block and pistons and be good. youll save some money if you rebuild what you got. and you can upgrade
