Maybe in your city lol but not mine

The 3v motors are a much more complicated swap than a 2 or 4v.

Alright I kind of thought that it would be more complicated. Any recommendations for 4v?

Mark VIII is probably the least expensive option. Look up 32vNomad on here. He has a write-up on the swap. Bonus to the Mark is that you'll get the added benefit of it's aluminum block.

Yeah for the cheap find a Mark VIII motor with the B heads and just do the 4V swap. Personally I would just find a PI motor in good shape and drop it in. Its literally a direct drop in, all your NPI electronics and computer will work just fine. That's how mine is.

Edit: Yeah the Mark has the Teksid block which is the best block Ford ever put in a car. However, as I already stated, you can get a PI with an aluminum block too which would be the Exploders. Unless you are looking at a ridiculous power number the WAP is more than fine.

So a 2v from a 01-04 would drop right in and I could use all the same computer and everything?

Engine, trans, complete GT/Cobra wiring harness, 8.8 rear axle, v8 hydroboost system among other things. Easier to just buy a GT with a blown motor/trans and fix that up IMO.

I have a 98 gt engine with the pcu for sale if you are interested. One on the spark plug hole is stripped but great for a PI head swap. Very cheap I'm selling it since I am doing a coyote swap. Is already out of the car

I agree the 02-04 came in PI.
