    Hell yes it would be worth it, you would need a whole slue of other parts including stuff for the computer,tranny, suspension, driveshaft, etc, but i dont think you would regret doing it. Is the motor a 2v or 4v?

    Engine i believe is 4v out of a lincoln Contintal rated at 275 hp, i may be able to get the whole car, as it is in a junkyard, it was rear ended and written off, so if i could get the whole car i should be able to use the computer and tranny out of it,, im not sure if the stock mustang rearend would hold up to the v8, and i have a set of v8 lowering springs that would beef the suspension up a little, does anyone know of someone who has done this swap before so i could get a heads up before i go about it, Thanks Brett

    look over on MPH or SVT Performance you should be able to get some usefull info, it would be a LOT of work but well worth it. The change from that 6 banger to a 4 valve 4.6 would be :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek:
