V6 worth the money

Hey everyone I found a offer on a 1999 v6 mustang with 2 v6 engines and a manual transmission. Guy wants $1000 for everything old engine is pulled already and has another ready to go both are complete. Car is the red/maroon in color clear coat is peeling some and interior is great. Not sure on odometer reading but is this a good deal or should I just walk away, I do have a mechanic background so engine swaps are ok to me.

Well, $1000 isnt too bad but be prepared that the motor going back in might not be so great. But for $1000 not too bad. A whole car and two motors. Check the motor going back in, inspect and make sure everything you can look at looks good.

"Manuel" transmissions are best.

Seriously, though, I'd check everything out as thoroughly as possible. If it all runs nicely, then 1000 seems like a fine deal

manifolds love to crack and leak on these years of motors.might want to upgrade to a decent set of headers while motor is out.but from what i can see from the pictures,a grand might be a pretty good deal.any clutch tranny or rearend problems your aware of and is an engine harness included?

$1000 bucks is a good deal. Probably wants to get rid of everything cuz of the time and money you'll spend just to get everything dialed in. You never know what you'll come across when working on project cars.

i went with the Comp Cam street/strip cam,springs w/retainers,roller lifters and push rods.upgraded to a GMB high volume water pump and a Melling high volume oil pump as well.Clevite performance bearings,BBK 65mm throttle body,Live wire ignition wire set, NGK plugs and MSD coil.bought the cheap SR cold air intake from American Muscle(great deal for the price and mine works great).topped off with Bama tune.i can't send any pictures to ya on here but if you have an e-mail address i can send some pictures and video on how the car looks and sounds.no one believes its a 6 cylinder when they see and hear it.its not a bad set up.i now have a 6 cylinder with 7 cylinder power.lol! don't forget to upgrade your shifter to a Steeda short shifter.i love mine.does well with the 3.73 gears and t-lok rear end.i went from 16.40's(stock)to 14.90's in the 1/4.i've got the BBK Gripp upper and lower rear control arms that really help on launch,just wish my reaction time was quicker(can't blame car for that)lol.you should also look into some headers and exhaust.shorties really won't do much but the stock manifolds love to crack and leak.i wen't with Pacesetter coated shorties and they look really good.i don't worry about leaks now.good luck with your build Aaron and if you have any questions or concerns,get with me and like i said earlier,Felpro make great gasket rebuild kits and i consider them to be the best but thats my oppinion.have a good one brother and don't forget to wear a mask when you go rob that bank to afford all this.mine was a 5 year project when it was all said and done.

Well got a heck of a deal for $750 2 engines old one threw a rod, but complete. Other engine was out of a running car that got totaled from behind. Threw in a extra hood off the engine donor car. Brand new tires factory size Pirellis. Other engine is complete and ready to drop in. But I am going to tear down and rebuild complete. Trans is good but won't know 100% till I get it running.

Turns out the other good engine is not the same year, my 99 engine harness is pretty rough and the other is off a 2001 or newer it has the 3 bolt coil, what's the best way around this ? I can use the new engine harness as its for a automatic

01 was the first year of the coil/throttle body change.don't know if you can use the newer harness because of the two different type transmissions but i'll go to work tomorrow and look it it up and see.i do this kind of work for the city.get back to ya later.

Thanks man I was going to get new injector connectors and switch out the coil pack connector, also make the wires long enough to reach the coolant temp. I found out it's a 2003 motor from the green hood I got. Do I need to change anything for the internally or externally balanced engines ?

Hey guys I got everything put together except the driveshaft yoke is not sliding in the transmission like it should, it goes in about a inch or two then stops. Any suggestions ? Should I buy a new one and hope it's not the transmission side ? [IMG][/IMG]
