4.6 swap

I probably asked this before but i a respect you guys thoughts. I have a 03 v6 mustang with cold air intake and dual flowmasters 50 series. I was wondering if i found a 4.6 from a 99+ GT and a 8.8 rear end would be all i needed. Would i need a new computer? Just bascially give me some prices. Is it worth and i wont be buying a new car because this is my baby and i gift from my parents. Finally Would it be easier to work on the v6er. Thank again guys

I can't answer most of those questions, but I can tell you it would be much easier to sell your car and buy a GT than to swap it over. It's not worth the hassle, especially as plentiful as GTs are.

I third that, big job, big expense, esp if you plan on paying someone to do it for you. Either keep what you have and if you want to soup it up a little, do that. Or, get a GT already built. Now, if you were inclined to do most of it yourself, get a wrecked GT for a donor, and go from that.

Just got finished swapping a 04 gt motor into a 01 V6. A GT will cost less and be a lot less headache. Its a realitvely simple swap just a time consuming one and costly for all the nitnoid parts you'll need. I'll go so far as to say buy a wrecked one and that way you have everything you need.

The only way I'd consider swapping a bigger engine into a V6 is if it were a 5.4 4V or a cobra motor. Otherwise just go buy a GT
