You can put almost anything in there, but with more power you're gonna have to upgrade more than the engine, like the rear end, brakes, etc. anything that won't be able to handle that much power

that would be the smartest thing but if you have the money to put it into your 95, that car would be one hell of a sleeper!

I think it would be pretty awesome to put that motor into a '96. You'd definitely get some looks when you pop the hood or when you haul *** with a sleeper like that! But if that motor is going into a '96 v6 then you will have to upgrade the transmission, rear end, drive shaft, etc. If it was a GT it could probably hold up fine, but a v6 will have some issues.

The only benefit to doing this to a gt is having an 8.8 rear in the car already, otherwise it's just as much work

For the money this would cost, you could just buy a new GT lol.

A new motor like the one he showed is probly like 6grand. I pretty sure it's cheaper to do the swap. If the got the money
