it would be very hard to replace or convert your motor if you have little experience. its alot harder than just switching the motors and hooking up a fer things. a ford mustang motor would probably not work with the chevy cavilier transmission. for all the time and money that you would put into putting a mustang motor in a cavalier just buy a mustang and drive that. its not worth switching the motor unless the motor died and you need a new motor.

For a car like your Chevy that needs an engine replaced will probably be more trouble than it's worth. My recommendation, get a new(to you) car. You can probably get the same model for roughly the same price as a mustang engine and service costs. If you already have the 95 mustang, I'd forget the Chevy and drive that.

A 96 Cavalier Z24 is only worth about $1.000. Anything you do regarding swapping an engine will cost you several times more than what the car is worth or will be worth after the mod. You'll be way ahead of the game to spend your money on a car which already has the performance you're looking for.

HI
you would most likely have to change the transmission as well.to go with a Ford motor in a chevy all tho they do make swap kits I'm sure.

You're making it more difficult thinking about installing a rear wheel drive motor into a front wheel drive car.
