Goblin Works Capri

Has anybody seen the episode where they transplant a 5.0 Coyote engine from a mustang into a 2.8 Capri? The American makes reference to the Capri as a granny car and is critical of the 2.8 only making approx 160hp.

I love American muscle cars but having driven a Challenger and a Mustang, can safely say that the Capri is quicker off the mark than either as they handle like boats and have poor power to weight ratios!

Criticisms aside, it's well worth a watch as it's interesting to see a conversion which hasn't been done before!
