    hey guys i got a question for you all. i recently had some engine trouble with my 98. to make a long story short i had a clack and found metal flakes in my oil pan. so i think im gonna just gonna replace my block. so i found a 99 motor for 500 bucks. now for the questions. i know i can drop the 99 in my stang but i want to know if all of my aftermarket stuff like exhaust headers, 04 ported PI heads, UDP's, and so forth would bolt right up to the new block? im hesitant to buy this block till i know i can put all my other stuff on it. if you guys can help me on this one i would greatly appreciate it. all info would be great. thanks for the help in advance.

    Ya man, it should bolt right up, especially if you're using the heads you have now.
    you'll just need a head changing kit, fluids ect.

    Good luck :thumb:
