    So I am going for a 02-04 pi engine swap for my 98gt, MY question is when I drop the pi engine into my 98gt when I start lookin for mods am I gonna have to look for mods for the 02-04 4.6gt and not 96-98 4.6gt anymore ??? for example on a the stage 1 clutch from spec i was gonna get for my 98gt is just for 96-98 gts, and they also have a specific stage 1 spec clutch for the 02-04 gts. In other words should I jus wait on mods for my new engine? unless of course mods are for 96-04 4.6 gt, then I shouldnt have to worry and go ahead and buy them then jus switch them over to my new PI engine. :help2:

    With a clutch you have to buy accordingly to your trans. If it's the trans out of a '98 GT, then get a clutch that will fit that year tranny. As long as that's the trans in the car. As for the engine, buy accordingly to that. If you have an '02-'04 engine, buy the internals for that. If you swap everything (wiring harness, cluster, ignition system) then buy for those specific years. If you just swap the "hard" parts, then only use parts for an '02-'04 engine.

    +1 basically if you are unsure, come on here and ask if it will fit until you get the hang of knowing your car :)

    He's correct. You will get a clutch spec'd for a 98 T45. Only thing that is really different is when get a speed cal. For 99-04 you will have to purchase a Speedcal EXT to calibrate your speed odmeter when you swap gears.
