Say i wanted to drop a pushrod 302 into my 96. It wouldnt be to hard would it?
shouldnt be hard at all, computer setup is diffrent though
if you are good with wiring it would be a piece of cake just alot of work
Sell your car and buy a 94-95 GT. I will be alot easier and cheaper.
yeah why are you thinking of doing this, your car have no motor or need replacing?
Well the 4.6 has 136k miles on it. Is a bit harder to find anything for...other than the PI swap. And I thought about getting a 95 but i like this car and i could get a built 5.0 with alot more power alot cheaper than a used engined 94 95 gt....
Personally id sell the 96 and pickup a 94/95.
It would be hard enough that its not worth it. Like others have said, just sell the 96, and buy a 94,95
like already said, sell it and get the 94/95 save yourself a LOT of work
and what happens when that car "needs' (or i want a new lol)a new engine? sell it and buy another?
Rebuild it better. Find one rebuilt or find one tired and rebuild it. Why do you want the pushrod?
more parts for it cheaper.
Unlimeted amount of heads, intakes, etc etc
ok so sell the 96 and get a 94/95 unless you want to build up a 5.0 then throw it in but id sell it then get a 5.0 94/95
Just look around a bit, these 4.6s are getting more and more popular, and there are starting to be more and more places making parts for them.
that's true, some of you guys may be a little too young to remember but the aftermarket for the 5.0 took a few years to get going after the 87GT came out. Same with the 4.6 cars (although its took a little longer ) the parts are getting better all the time and becoming more available.
Personally, I'd hang onto the '96 and do the swap, just for the challenge of the project - but that's the kinda guy I am...
^^^ I like the way you think...............I would keep the 4.6 tho..........There are a good many OHC parts out there not. Also to me If your gonna go FI any time the 4.6 will shine over the 5.0. Don't get me wrong the push rod motor can be made to run good with FI. If you are dead set on it this is how I would play it. Find you a 351 block, have it bored and cleaned up. Build that while you run your 4.6. IMO a stock 5.0 swap is not worth it.
