    Any ideas on whats involved on a 5.0 swap into a 4.6car? I've already done a 99PI swap into my 96 and just got the briliant idea to do a 5.0 instead. Engine, And wiring harness but what else? thanks...

    yeah a pi swap is a different thing...you can swap a pi engine and not change anything else...swap a pushrod 5.0 into a modular and you have to change everything! so it really is cheaper to pick up a 94-95 5.0...i see them going for @ $3500 all the time.

    no, a PI swap is much less work than swapping in a 5.0..and you will most likely save more than buying a 99+
