    First off, all the bolt's are junk, throw em right in the trash. Secondly, you can maybe squeeze between 800 and 1k out of it. Good luck.

    I'd pay around $500-$650 for an engine that's torn apart. If you put it back together you should see about $800-$900. But then again if you find someone who wants to stroke an engine or build up a 4.6 so his car won't be out of service with building an engine you could make about the same. Either way, you're short of a 4V by about $3,000.

    Hell... I almost bought a 96 Cobra motor for 2000 that only had 18000 miles on it.

    Damn! All I ever see the engines go for is $3,500. Sometime you'll see one go for $2,000 but it needs work. If I would've known a way to get a complete 4V engine for $2,000 I wouldn't have done the PI swap.

    Be patient and search hard, Mustang boards is the best way to find them.
