Later down the line I want to do a engine swap to a v8 , how costly is it ? Is it worth it ? Which v8 engine should I put in it ?

Pretty damn pricy. You have to change pretty much everything out. Trans. Springs. Rear. Ecu. Wiring harness I think. And more things i think im forgetting..
I'm thinking of doing the same... But I'm gonna be putting a 03-04 cobra engine in it.

Depends on a lot really. If you do a carbed 302, you can get a good engine for roughly 500, then you need to address trans, a stock v6 t5 will handle a stock or lightly modded 302 for a while if you take it easy. You need an 8.8 and then factor in how much of the work can you do yourself vs outsourcing it. Also, you have a 96-up so there's the issue of changing stuff out to accomodate a pushrod v8 under the hood. In my 95, to do a proper carbed 302/351w would run me about 1800-2500. But I'd be doing 95% of the work myself and I get real lucky with deals because I'm friends with a lot of garage owners...personally, a 302/351 slightly modded even isn't worth the hassle to me.

Exactly, that's what I'm looking for right now..

If you're going to do a motor swap or build from a v6, do something crazy, something unusual. I've been looking at doing a 5.4 swap out of a 2000ish f150.

If you want to be real crazy. Pull the motor and drop in a 7.3L turbo diesel from an F-250. That would be damn impressive.

There are two diesel Mustangs, drag cars, on youtube. Check em out! That is unique, and fast as a bat out of hell!!

If you want to be underestimated get a minivan! Seriously! Those Honda guys ( or anyone for that matter ) would crap their pants if they were dusted by a sleeper van. Little bit of turbo, some nitrous, and some of those little family stickers with the little dog on the rear window....I would sit down and rethink my life if I got dusted by one.
I say all this because there was a Top Gear I believe, where one of the guys showed up with a van pushing some serous power, and blew everyone away. It was great.

Right on, where'd you end up going to get one?

With the tranny and everything out, idk if you already have, but it would be a great time to check your rear main.

Lol, great timing man, I've been in that same boat at picknpull haha

That'd prolly be something worth checking, just give the area behind the flywheel a check and see if you have any oil leaks, and wouldn't hurt to check your flywheel to make sure it doesn't have any cracks or visible damage.

Get a piece of pipe the same diameter and length as the cut and weld it in.. or just get rid of the Y pipe and put divorce or X/H piped duals in.

Do you need to do it for inspection or is it just bothering you?

um, check your wiring on your tps. There's a eccm in your passenger fender as well, that's worth a look. But id borrow or buy a multimeter and check all your grounds and connections according to the helms/haynes manual. I have some wiring issues similar to that, but not that severe yet. That sounds like a serious electrical issue to me. If no one else on here chimes in with a solution, and you don't find it soon id take it to a shop that's good with electrical.. electrical is the worst things to work on..
