4.6l 4v swap

Anyone know anyone's that's done it?

And no I don't want to buy a cobra. Maybe just as a donor car. But it would be cool af to me to have a termi engine in my sixxer. Plus it'll be more for me on insurance if I got a cobra. If I just switch the engines and everything it'll still be a "v6"

Just remember insurance. If you don't tell them about the swap in detail they can AND WILL deny your claim. Some companies try their best not to give money out. Even for the simplest things. If rather shell out a couple of extra bucks a month than total my car and not get anything

Yeah figured that. Would I need more than an 8.8 in the rear?

Not bad. I pay a little over $100 for my 01 V6 and liability for my '66. But you need to be exact with your insurance information though haha

Its more of a hassle than its worth, and without another car to drive it wont get done. From experience, its just not worth all the money spent for all the little things for it

It's worth it to me.. I can just get a donor car. Maybe even buy a cobra and just remove everything from inside. I want a sleeper I love being underestimated
