It would fit. However, you would need all new wiring, complete engine, new tranny, and a whole mess of other things.

Re: 5.4 swap

If an engine came in that body style it will fit. 5.4 came in the 2000 Cobra R so it should fit.

Will it fit, sure.
Will it be a huge headache, yes.

Re: 5.4 swap

It's a large project....so I'd treat it as a huge project. Something to do on weekends when you have the time, money and an extra driveable car. The thing to remember is when you upgrade to a larger platform such as a 5.4, you need to upgrade other components...brakes, rearend, suspension, frame stiffening (subframe connectors).

It gets expensive and as said can be a headache. Not trying to deter you but it's not just a simple drop in and go type of thing.

Re: 5.4 swap

The reason you hear about people doing it is because its alot easier in the gt wiring harness is the same and only have to change a few things. Its definalty not something to take likely in a gt but is alot easier and cheaper.

One suggestion unless your attatched you could sell your car and get a 1996-1998 gt and the swap would be alot easier and since its a lil older the car itself would be cheaper. And you could be money ahead if you sell ur car for a decent price.

agreed, and i know from experience. helped a friend do a 5.4 swap with a procharger and 2 stages of nitrous. 720hp/900tq.

worth it? - depends on how fat your wallet is. took 20+ g's to get to that point.

pain in the ***? - HAIL F***IN YES!

would i recommend doing it? - if you know what you are doing like me then by all means have fun, the **** is quick.

p.s.- have fun installing headers and doing oil changes

Re: 5.4 swap

Hey guys. new to this forum.
I dropped a lightning motor on my 98 gt convertible, still working on the wiring, its a bit of a pain but i think it'll be fun once done. My question to you all is there anything else I can do to the front end to get that motor to sit a little lower, I already installed a tubular K member. that thing still sitting about 6 to 7 inches above the fenders... I'm open to any ideas, been looking at different hoods and haven't seen anything that could work.

Re: 5.4 swap

dont have any pics of the current mods yet, but I should have it all done in another month. I'll be posting some more pics of the final project. I'm also working on a double din radio bezel for it with a buddy of mine that owns a stereo shop in north jersey cause no one makes a double din kit for it so we'll see
