Cobra swap and affordability

Hello, I have a 97 mustang 3.8. I was wanting to know if I can swap a cobra engine into my mustang, and a estimated guess of cost for the swap!!

Sure you can swap a Cobra motor in
You're just gonna need a lot of stuff to go with it. You'll need a new trans, wiring harnesses, k-member, rear end if you want it to last, probably a new fuel system. You're looking at a couple g's on the low side for a swap like that and that's assuming you do the work yourself

Sold - Black 2000 Mustang GT, gone but definitely not forgotten
- Silver 2007 Corvette
Current - DHG 2001 Bullitt
