ur better off buying a 94-95 gt than converting urs to a 5.0. u would need to switch ur k-member and all the wiring is different.too much work, too much hassle. do a pi swap instead, or if u really want a pushrod motor, look for a 94-95.

at one point i had thought about dropping in a Terminator motor but after reveiwing the actual costs, i decided that i couldn't afford it. i'll probably just stick with mods to this motor.
 
if i were you i'd keep the 4.6 block... save you a headache...

find a 4V motor...

a pushrod engine will be a bit of work... won't be too bad... pushrod will lose some weight.... and is cheap to mod...

but ya'll need new to modify some stuff under the hood... so if you are good a welding and modify metal then go for it

i'm gettin a good size bonus check probably in march from work. hopefully i can free up some ponies then. until then though, it's gonna have to be lower priced mods.
