V8 swap

Would the car really loose value and could I use a different 4.6 other than a mustangs because I can't find a mustang engine at all

I responded to the value comment in your other thread. But yes. Other ford V8 engines can fit in there as well. Hell, you can make anything fit if you shove enough money down its tailpipe

Why don't you put this engine in . It comes with a three year warranty.

Never even heard of them.. They must get materials cheap or put no work into porting the heads/intake

I live in MS. and herd about em at the casino from a v6 Mustang enthusiast. They are a little closer to my home turf because they are out of AL.
If you got a L.S.A. machine you can buy the program that re-blueprints the heads.
Numbers:




This engine is a modified 3.8 RWD Ford Mustang Engine. This engine has been built as a Street and Strip engine and is designed be used as a daily driver, we have Bored and Stroked this 3.8 engine to 4.3 L. The Cylinder Heads have recieved a 5 angle valve job and been fitted with 1.892 Intake Valves and 1.491 Exhaust valves and performance springs. The Stroker is fitted with a .480/.480 204-216 @ .050 Camshaft which will deliver strong torque and pull to 5800 RPM's. The engine is built with the compression ratio set at 9.5 to 1 to make it pump gas friendly. 24 pound injectors are recommend for a non-nitrous natural aspirated application.


The cam is a little small.
