4.6 in a fox?

Don't think it would mount up, but can you put a 4.6 from an 06 gt in a 93 coupe??

Re: 4.6 in a fox?

Re: 4.6 in a fox?

It's been done before. Not sure on the details though.

I was just thinking today that putting a new modular 5.0 in a Fox would be a really fun project...

Yea, it'll cost a little bit to get a new 5.0 though.

That's a pretty good price if you ask me. Do you know what all that comes with?

If I could get everything I needed, including a 6 speed tranny for under 10k, I would be really tempted to give it a go. 412 hp from a reliable, stock motor is hard to beat. Plus I could leave all the 5.0 badges on.

Re: 4.6 in a fox?

94-03 k member bolts up in a fox....and vice versa. saleen made a 2000 stang with a 351 pushrod. one of my friends that races put a 4.6 in his 91 gt, you have to convert manual brakes cause the booster wont fit past the head. and if your really good....u can stuff a 4v in a fox too, but u have to trim sum shyte then. 5.0 mag did an article a while back, but they always do shyte the hard way.....

it's been done many times over...that's where i got the idea to put the 5.0 in the 97.

Re: 4.6 in a fox?

ok...well i know that stickn a 5.0 in up to 03 isnt all that bad... dropn a 4.6 in a fox is the easy part...wiring it up is another...so i wish you guys luck. all the exhaust for the 4.6 will work on fox up to 03. as far as 3v or 4v...ill have to source sum articles and write ups i have. i know 5.0 mag did a whole 03 cobra 6spd swap into a fox. u definatley would need a whole car to swap with though...

May not do it. It'll be a job, my dad found a 351, hasn't looked at it, the guy doesn't know if it's a Windsor or a Cleveland, but it's cammed, roller rockers, etc. for $600. We've found some good deals on craigslist.

Plus 1.... Efi is so much more reliable and fuel efficient. Well more efficient than a carb anyway. If it's just a track car a holley dp would be awesome but if it's a daily driver efi all the way. Instead of trying to make the wiring Harness work perhaps a stand alone fuel injection like quarterhorse or megasquirt might be an option.... Just a thought

Lol. Well, might just get a 5.0 and put it in there, I created the thread to see more details about a swap, if he found a good cheap 4.6 But whatever motor we get, is going in a 93 coupe to replace a 289.

Re: 4.6 in a fox?

well u could do the 4.6 carb set-up too, but i dont even know where to begin to tell u where to even find a harness for that app..or intake for that matter. serously though, if i were u...sometimes simple is more. id get sum 351 swap headers and drop in a roller 351 from the junk yard out of a 95 van or pick-up. ad a nice intake and cam with your carb and call it a day..

Go for it man. I would go after a 2 valve instead of 3v. From what I've seen the 2v holds up to more punishment.

sooo when u say a 400hp 302...you mean a stroked 347. cause you aint getn 400hp outa a n/a 302 with a carb...or efi for that matter.

let me re-phrase it... you can get 400hp out of a 302..it just wont run on gasoline...and the heads on it will cost more than most of us can afford in todays economy...lol.
