V6 to V8 swap...

hey all..

What do I need to convert my 3.8 to a 4.6? And can I use some or all of my accessories?

The easiest thing is a 4.6 donor car..... otherwise its going to be a nightmare to piece together everything.

Re: V6 to V8 swap...

I agree with Brent !!!!! Unless you have a donor car don't did itand even with a donor theres alot of time and frustration in doing the swap, You'd have to change suspension, tranny, exhaust, fuel system, brakes, and the list goes on and on

Mods-K&N CAI , True Dual Flowmaster 40, BBK Ceramic Shorties, 3.73 , 25% UDP, 3/8 Phenolic Intake Spacer ,Steeda Tri-ax, SCT Chip/Dyno Tune
