98 gt motor on 2000 v6

If I blew my motor could I just drop a 98 Gt motor in my 00 v6 just hook it up to my transmission and go????

And no I didn't blow my motor. I'm really looking into putting a v8 in it that's easy and something that fits what my options??? I'm looking for something with at least 200 hp so I could build on it. Something crate motor like.

Re: 98 gt motor on 2000 v6

different trans bolt pattern (need new trans), wire harness modifications needed, different motor mounts.... the rear ends would be a good idea to swap out since you'll have a V8 now and the 7.5" axle might not last long, basically you need a whole donor car to do the swap........

and i wouldn't get a crappy non-pi V8 to go through all this trouble, you gain what 33hp for having to swap an entire drivetrain? waste of time and money

do a 4V swap, buy a gt, or build the V6 only sane options.......

I'm pretty sure the motor mounts are the same, but yeah it's not that smart for a the 30 hp gain.

get a 99GT motor at least, those are not the best either but at least they make 260hp vs 215....
