Wink Engine Swap on a V6 2003 Mustang.

Ok, so I'm new at this and was looking for some advise. Im looking to swap out my engine for a 5.4L ford engine. I need to know the details on what all I should change out. Also if anyone here has done it maybe how you've liked it and would recommended it. I'm hoping to do it with in the next 2weeks so I would really appriciate the input. Thank you

Sell that car and buy a V6 with a blown motor. Dumbest thing you can do is start doing this swap on a good car because I highly doubt it will be finished anytime soon.

plus resale value is worthless on a car when you mod it like that

Re: Engine Swap on a V6 2003 Mustang.

if thats a daily driver that would be a bad move unless u have a spare vechile! its alot harder than u think! and that 5.4 is not gonna just slide right in there bro lol! i would ask around and get a good team together before proceeding! the guys are right! it would be better to just buy a car with a blown motor and let that be a project car! droping a new engine let alone one that is a hell of alot bigger than what it came with stock is not exactly a one day project unless u know exactly what ur doing and have about a 6 man crew lol! goodluck and Godspeed!
