That I know of nobody on here has done a pushrod swap on a new edge. But if I remember right your need a K-member from a 94-95 GT and probably whatever wiring to run an engine like that. It might be a good idea to check the bigger forums like The Corral and SVTperformance for build threads or how-tos.

There a link to a guy on YouTube that did it on his new edge v6 deff had me thinking I rather pay for a engine swap than getting a whole new car note for the next 5 years.

Are you saying, that this whole time, I've been on a "third rate" website?

I thought that this was the biggest, bestest, most... um... err... famousest on the whole internet...
We need to figure out a way to put ME on the map!


That confusing thread about the "426 Cobra jet" exhaust, got me thinking of the possibility of actually swapping a FE engine into one of these cars. Ford didn't offer a "426 CJ", the largest of the series was a 428. They were, relatively, light engines, for their displacement. Ford stopped using them because the casting process for the blocks was more expensive and there was a high (For Ford) percentage of casting failures.
Everything would have to be custom fabricated though...

Why go through all the trouble to swap in a slow, heavy engine when you could just boost your current one?

Haha I hope I didn't ruin your day right there.

I personally think a swap like that is not worth the headache fun to all the various complications you'll run into with changing up damn near everything on the car.

You'll need an entire donor car from 94/95 and your current transmission will not bolt to a pushrod either.

And if you ARE going to swap in a pushrod you want a 351 based motor, not a 302 not to mention in many states its illegal to swap an engine that is not the same year or newer as your car.

So to answer your question, it can be done if you have a full donor car, a good set of tools and a place to work that preferably has a lift and you swap EVERYTHING over from the 94/95 car. Honestly, if you want a pushrod car, sell yours and buy a fox or a 94/95.

I know it.
I was actually excited about that "426" thread when I saw the title...
Just finding a 428 CJ that someone doesn't think is "gold plated" would be the first of many obstacles.
Haha. I have one and you won't see me attempting the swap!

I've thought about putting an FE motor in my new edge as well, the 4.6 is a good motor but I prefer the old simpler stuff. The swap would be a PITA but I have most of the parts. I also have an FE motor already built but its only a 390, I bored it out put a bigger cam in it and had some very expensive head work done. But its running just shy of 500hp, which would be a ton of fun in a new edge

Again, you'll need most of the stuff from a 94/95 donor car. K member, mounts, fuel system, harnesses, transmission etc... Best bet is to find a wrecked 94/95 V8. Or sell your 4.6L and buy a 94/95 with a blown motor in otherwise good shape and just replace the motor.
