Cobra R swap????

Has anyone on here ever done a 5.4 engine swap on a V6??
I was looking at a Cobra R today and thought just how incredibly badass that would be. lol.

Re: Cobra R swap????

there's a Cobra R on Ebay going for 35k...
i guess if it's that hard finding the parts, why not just buy the car right??

Re: Cobra R swap????

Where did you see a real cobra R, haven't seen or heard of one by me in the midwest.
There's a youtube/streetfire video of a guy who took a 00 GT and dropped in a fully built 5.4 lightning engine in, the damn thing sits almost as high the roof of the car, and sounded amazing!

Damn, you may want to try and pick that one up on ebay if your pocketbook is deep enough!

Re: Cobra R swap????

i'm not sure if a loan for an 18 year old with almost no credit would be too cheap especially for a 35 thousand dollar car, plus insurance might be a biotch.. lol
but if i did have the money that car would be sitting in my drive-way by next week!!!!

its been done, the lightning engine in a mustang also works but it sticks out of the hood a TON with the blower and such... like a foot out.
