What exactly do you mean by "cobra headers"? I ask because the 5.0 Cobras used the exact same headers as the GT.

And if it's the gt40 explorer motor you NEED to do the valvesprings. Its not optional even with the stock gt cam much less an e cam.

Get a repair manual for your car. It will be invaluable while doing this engine swap.

If you have a few months to wait I'll be doing all that with the 4.6L I just bought with a blown motor. Basically the same thing as far as motor removal and trans/clutch/everything. I'm having my knee scoped Thursday so I will not be able to do it as fast as I'd like.

Get a Chilton's manual (NOT HAYNES) for your model year and it will give you pretty much step by step on removing.

Not sure if they have digital discs for 1995s...

Those headers... shudder... oh well they'll do until you can afford better ones and they're pretty easy to do with the motor in the car with the 5.0 unlike the 4.6L.

But how many hours did it take you?


Also how much extra did you do when the motor was out?

I'm stuck on the pilot bearing right now, can't get it out, tried using bread and paper and it doesn't work so I need to go get slide hammer.
Here's the breakdown:
-3 hours tear down or tranny and x pipe and taking motor out
-full 24hrs of part swapping, such as timing chain and timing cover. I had 2 siezed bolts in the block where the cover sits. Got one out and had to drill and tap and thread the other one(this took about 5 hours of my day to fix this) headers and manifold/ motor mounts were easy, all piullies were easy
-5 hour install of motor, complete install of all electronics and hoses and radiator/ aftermarket cooling fan.

-Extras I didn't have to do but thought it was a good idea:
-header gaskets, timing chain/ water pump and gaskets
- all front end swap from my other motor cause I wanted to keep same ratio
- new cooling fan
- new clutch kit and flywheel
- spark plugs and wires
-sure there's things I'm forgetting

Remember that since this is my first time doing this I wanted to take my time and I double checked everything, I had to go source a lot of parts from stores in my are that took some time out of my days as well. I'm guessing it will have taken me a full 48 hours to of total time worked.

Best advice is to measure twice and cut once.
You did well and much better taking your time then having to take it all apart because you forgot to do something.

:mustang: DONE!

I had to cut out the pilot bearing because it would budge even with the correct tool, used bread method and all and wed paper and I ended up using a dremal to cut and a hammar and a chisel to knock it into bits. new one was sitting on dry ice so it just slipped right in with a block of wood, all and all it started right up and I cant believe it purrrrrrrrs perfectly. First time rebuild/motor and tranny install on any car and I gotta say I couldn't be happier. Thank all u guys for the help!

Awesome great to hear. Now just break it in properly and don't go beating on it till that's done.

On a fresh motor I do an oil change after 100 miles, again at 500 and then a final regular change at 1000. Clutch needs to be broken in for 500 miles.
