Question 2000 Mustang GT Engine Swap

I just bought this mustang and it has 183,000 miles on it.. I want to either replace the engine or swap it with a more powerful engine that could just fit right in. Any suggestions on a more powerful engine that will work for sure, like a 302 or a 351??? will these work???

or should I just stick with the 4.6L?




ITS PEANUT BUTTER JELLY TIME!!!!!!

There are all kinds of swaps you can do!.. The question is what are your goals and how deep are your pockets!.. Lol

well... I would love to just have more HP and torque really.. what would you do if you had deep enough pockets for a nice project for this car? I would like to supercharge it down the road but the miles are high, so i want to swap the engine first

would a 302 or a 351 be worth putting in? will that cause problems of any kind as far as instillation??

It'll be far easier to use a mod motor.. A DOHC 4.6 is a common swap

If money were not a problem then a brand new crate motor 5.0 would be my weapon of choice!..

If money weren't a problem get a crate engine from proformanceunlimited.com 10-15k for the engine but you can get a 500+ horsepower NA beast.
