    Just hiding in the back of the shop... No title, owner wants the rear, i think thats all he wants..

    Im sure you know what i want....That powerplant. I may be able to pick it up dirt cheap. I have some questions...
    What would be a fair price for the motor with harness and computer?
    Is this one of the teksid aluminum block cars?

    To swap into my 02 GT 5spd:
    Im assuming i need the harness and ECU correct, or will my ECU work with a tune??
    Will a 2v manual flywheel work with it?
    Should i grab the factory H pipe or anything else this car has to offer? Maybe the wheels? Hate to see one of these get parted out, but its got no title and if i can get a cheap DOHC then im gettin it...

    Don't the 4v motors have the WAP aluminum block? Not the teksid. Not that it matters, I'm just splittin' hairs.

    Good find, though, I look forward to seeing a 4v swap.

    I would get as much as I could if it was cheap enough. I think those had the 4r75 transmission and those are pretty sturdy units so you could potentially make some money there. As for the 4v swap, your stock ecu will work just fine with a tune and im pretty sure your harness will work with a little modification. I don't believe the mid pipes are the same as the mustangs.

    Early ones (93-99) had the Teksid. Later ones (01+) had the WAP. Good score either way!

    This may be the plan. Like I said the owner only wants the rear end out of it. Stock 3.55s I think...

    Thanks for all the good info. How about the flywheels? Will I need the cobra flywheel or are the crank patterns the same?

    The Marauder 4.6 DOHC is pretty much the same as the Mach 1 4.6 DOHC/Auto.

    That engine uses a 6 bolt crank, so you will have to buy a 6 bolt flywheel or use the one from your 02 GT engine.
    I would use your current harness and ecu with a tune. Some wires will need to be lengthened etc.
    A good read: http://www.modularrevolution.com/forums/4vswap.php

    Also, the marauder upper intake is different as it puts the TB on the drivers side. So you'll have to find a 99 up Cobra or Mach 1 upper and TB and cables. Also fuel rails from a Mustang as well.
    Exhaust is specific as well, you will need Mustang exhaust manifolds/headers as well.

    Be a nice upgrade if you can snag the motor on the cheap.

    On the other hand, how hard would it be to get a title for that car, fix it up and sell it for a profit or just DD it?
