Damn...and the thread dies. Sorry....

Welcome to the site. Personally, I'd go without the wires, go with one that just has a lock in the top. Look alot cleaner and do the same job.

Not replying by email, if he wants to know so bad tell him to get on here and talk.

It's alot more complicated than he thinks, I'll promise you that. Unless he is physically attached to the car, sell it and start over.

Re: New here

Some of the parts needed
Engine
Trans
Driveshaft
Exhaust
Engine Wiring
TransWiring
Dash Wiring
ECU
Radiator
Hydroboost system
Gauge Cluster
8.8 rear
Then some small problems and there will be many --Brake lines dont line up with the hyrdaboost system )
Problem2: Some plugs on the wiring harness, don't have a home
problem 3: how to hook the p/s and hydro boost lines up

4.6 swaps are the hardest to do, mostly because of the OBDII EEC.

Advice, sell your ride and buy a V8, forget about the swap will cost more than the value of your car.

Ouch. If it were me in that situation, I would wait until I could trade up to a v8. Sounds like a tough swap! In the meantime, keep paying on the v6 and upgrade as you wish.
