1996 V6 to V8 engine swap.

I just bought a 1996 Mustand with a V6 and I either would like to put a 5.0 or a 351W in the car. What all do I need to get this done? Should I go carb or fuel injection? Just looking for some help here. Any tips would be great! Thanks, Kevin.

Re: 1996 V6 to V8 engine swap.

Well, with the 5.0 you're probaby going to want a donor car. Then you'll have all the engine components, harnesses, ECU, etc. If the car is a daily driver, I'd stick with FI. If it's a weekend cruiser where you're not concerned about maintenance and mileage, you could carb it.

The 351 windsor would be different. It would take more work and probably some modifications to the engine bay. People have done the swap before so it is possible.

Either way you'll want to upgrade your drivetrain, suspension and brakes if you do swap engines.

In order to put the 5.0 in do you have to change the K-frame? Or do you just use different engine mounts?
