be a lot cheaper to put a 99-04 GT into the same times as a 5.0 then actually buying a 5.0 engine and all the stuff you'd need to make it work lol

Don't you need to modify the body to fit a v8 into a v6 mustang? If not I should do this too.

Do you, or anyone else have a build list you could link? If my cousin doesn't follow through with giving me his 5.4, I'll look into doing this

Yeah you can fit a 4.6 or a 5.0 in there easily. The 5.0 engine would be pretty sweet, but you're going to have to upgrade your rear end and the transmission most likely which would also then probably need a new driveshaft. You aslo have to think about all the stock suspension pieces that after 170k are probably on borrowed time. It may be cheaper to just find a GT with lower miles and have it already all done.
