    So I found a set of 3v heads for $200 and was wondering if I could use those on my 98 gt. I know I'd have to find an intake if I did. What all else would I need if this would fit

    you should be able to find a 3V block cheapish now and they are aluminum. I am not sure if the 3V heads will work with 2V pistons (valve clearance) but never really looked into it.

    Yes you will need to drill a coolant passage, use the head gasket to mark it and drill.

    Ptv not sure I have probe pistons

    It's not a straight up swap lots of work and planning go into it..... Cams/Cam phaser lockouts, full intake (filter to heads), fuel system, timing cover, v10 block plates, exhuast, tune. all of this ..... And then some... It sounds so easy on paper
