I am pretty sure you can do a Coyote 5.0 swap. BBK makes LT headers and mid pipes so you can perform the swap into a Fox body or SN95 Mustang.

It can be done, anything can be done to a car but it cost more money than it's worth.

Yes it can and has been done, but I was talking to a guy that did it and he said your looking at 15-25k depending on how much work you have a shop do...

Good grief! You might as well just get a 2011 gt in that case.

Itd probably be cheaper to get a junk yard 5.4 and throw it in
