Mark VIII

Hey Guys, I've seen a lot of modular Mark VIII swaps into the 96 and up SN95's and new edge mustangs, but i haven't seen much in the older pushrod 5.0's i have a couple of questions and would really appreciate it if anyone who has swapped the motor into an older pushrod 94-95 could maybe help me out, i'd really appreciate it thanks,

Going to need an entire harness out of a 96-up car, also new cluster, new fuel setup, new trans and some other things. 96 was when they went to OBDII and the motors are completely different and the bolt pattern for the transmissions are different. The Mark VIII swap happens in the 96-up cars alot because they use the same motors, or at least the 4V is a 95% drop in for those cars since the 4V and 2V are both modulars. It is NOT an easy drop in for the 95-down.

The swap is typically done with a full donor car like a wrecked Cobra or something so you can take EVERYTHING you need. In all honesty I'd stick with the Pushrod but that's just me. You'll spend more money and time into doing the swap then you would selling your car and buying something that already has a 4V in it. Or even a clean 2V with a blown motor to swap a 4V into.

Thanks, yea i have the whole 98 Mark VIII donor car and it is running, i figured it would be a lot, of work i think it would be easier if my car was a newer year model, i know it would be a lot simpler to do the swap, i had a 2002 gt and i did a 5.4 swap in that and it was pretty simple, but i might attempt it in the 94 being as how i have the whole car, thanks a lot for the info

Well donor as I mean you should need a modular mustang as a donor, not the Mark VIII itself.
