for a 95 id look into getting a 5.0 motor its the easier swap for your style car. Like I told someone else lookinginto doing this swap.

Go over to V6power.net and talk to Stylin96 he did the swap and If i remember correctly it was done in a timely fashion and cheap for him.

But I also wouldnt do a 4.6 just for the reasoning of the fuel system would be the b*tch to mess you up.

yeah, I was thinking of just selling this one and buying a gt, but it seems like any gt around here sells for upward of 15 grand or so and thats for one that would require some serious work

Just wait & get an 01 1/2 They have a better shifter & tranny. Mine has the weaker shifter & tranny (t45). I wish I got an 01 1/2 so I can upbrade my shifter, driveshaft, & clutch to get it ready for a supercharger.
