Going with a bigger motor?
Hey everyone im throwing this out there cause the idea popped into my head recently and I wanted to throw it by you all.
I love my car, but am thinking I would like the more horse power and to do some other stuff to it. So here is my thought
I plan on this winter finding a garage to store it in and doing some work this winter. This work includes a nice paint job and some engine work. I have debated going with the 4.2 swap and building for a small turbo but at that point (and money) the full V8 swap is looking better and better every day. So I have a list of questions to those who know a little more about full swaps than me and it goes as follows.
So the motor ive been eyeing up is the 4.6 v8 motor that is your traditional gt of that year ran. But of course donor cars for those years are not easy to come by. But the Crown vics ran the same motor. So if I bought a crown vic for like 600-1000 and used it as a donor car and removed the motor, wiring, rear end, and anything else would I be able to swap it?
Next comes tranny, obviously I cant run the tranny from the vic in my car as mine is a 5 speed. So should I buy a new tranny, or should I just have mine built for maybe like 350 hp and then I can have room to play?
Last computer. Not my strongest area. So, Vic computer, or do I need to buy one from a stang that was a 5 speed?
I hope this is in the right section and if anyone can give me some info on it that would be great as if this is the case I will have to start hunting for a donor, a garage, and get my hands on some new tools.
