If you have the mechanical ability and time and another car to drive and actually want to do it i think its a great idea as long as the motor you are putting in is worth that time.

Re: motor swap v6 to v8

If you want to do it to look factory. All parts listed are for a 94-95 gt.

1. 5.0 h.o with 94-95 timing cover & front brackets,upper intake, engine & trans harness.
2. Throttle & cruise control cable.
3. One ac line.
4. Computer & harness with the vac lines that go inside the pass fender.
5. Computer will need to match the transmission style.
7. Auto you will need the a gt flexplate. (AODE )
8. T-5 you will need a gt flywheel,clutch, & bell housing.
9. 98 fan & rad should work fine. Fan is bigger than the 94-96gt's.
10. Fuel lines are the same. The fuel pump is ok for a stock 5.0
11. 8.8 will be needed soon.

This will give you a good idea where to start, I may have missed a few things.

you may can find a donor car (94-95 GT) for around 1-2k at a junk yard. Then you will have all you need. Rebuild the engine and drop it in then the rear. If you have a manual T-5 it will work with, if not GET ONE lol dont do it with an auto.
