    If i was to have a 96-98
    could i rip the gay engine outof it and put a 302 in it?
    Or will the wires be all diffrent?

    Can u swap the 4.6 for the 5.0 without eny modifcations?

    I've heard of people doing this but I think it requires some tricky modifications and computer problems. :dunno:

    you'll need a new harness ecu/ trans/ k member etc etc plus we don't want you to own one of our gay motored cars...plus it illegal to swap an older engine in on a street driven car.

    that's your problem, too much figurin'...if you want a 4.6 jump on it...P/I swap and some form of FI and you'll be happy...

    If you're going to rip the modular out at least put in a 351.

    1st, why?
    2nd, buy a Cobra and sell me the parts you don't want. I could use another 4 valve.
     
  9. yah... it would be tricky...

    You would need to use an OBDII harness on the 302...

    the last years of the 302 in the mustangs were OBDI

    So it would be tricky, its doable... but you would be way better off doing a PI swap

    putting a 5speed in YOUR car would be cheaper than getting a new one and swaping in a 5.0 :p :p

    Your miss understanding me.
    Sale my care for 5k
    buy a GT or a Fox for around 3000 with high mile engine
    Ill have 2k sitting right there
    to go to my engine that im building
    And then i can work on the stang the way i want

    B/c im changing the wheels and everything else either way
    Make sense?
    the whole 5 speed thing is just a bonus
    if we have to get another auto i reccon we will if the deal is a good one

    Im not looking for a 96+
    i was wondering if they could hold a 302 easily
    *To see if i should look for them to*
    I've found about 2 GT's around 3-4k not counting the Fox's

    well heres my thoughts ...you want to get another car so now your another 3k in the hole and you just blew 2k on your heads so theres what your asking for your car... :dunno: ....then you have to find someone to buy yours ...you said you would swap wheels and everything which leads me to believe you will buy the other car first...and if thats the case and you look into a fox body then you have to do a 5 lug conversion to make your wheels fit...

    i say save the headache and keep your car you wont make that much money doing what you want to do

    nono...

    Yall forget it, none of you understand lol...

    Im making 2k off selling my car, the wheels are Illrevelant. It's just a side note contributing my decision to sell my car. *spelling 0.o*
    Note to self - my engine is my car -
    So the car itself isnt important.

    So we are selling My car, and getting a cheaper stang with a crappy engine.
    We will take the engine out, and put my new one in.
    And then use the 2 extra k we got left *or less*
    And spend it on the extra's for the car *long tube headers, wire set, ignition*

    My car is a realy decent ride, so it'll bring in some cash i hope. :p
