98 with 96 engine?
so went over to my girlfriends today and met her grandpa. upon seeing my 98 mustang he told me he had an engine for one. i looked and it was the 3.8 v6 with the auto trans out of a 96 conv. he told me he only wanted $350 for it. the best thing is that the engine only has 30,xxx miles on it and looks brand new because its been laying in his garage under plastic. (he even has pics to prove the mileage)
basically im a highschool student with limited money and a mustang with 169,xxx miles on it. basically before i buy, i need to know what i need to look out for during this swap if i were to do it. also the i have a 5 speed so i can always resale the automatic trans that is with the engine to make up some of that money.
i am great with cars and done 4 mustang transplants on foxbodys so getting done is no problem, just want to know any hickups that may arise.
