4.6 2V Price??

How much should I pay for a 2V with 112,000 miles on it. Just the engine itself

Gotcha, looking to 4.6 2V or 3V or even 4V swap my 08 V6 rather than supercharge it.

With a 3V all id need is a PCM and a 8.8" rear mostly cause I've got an auto tranny.

I'd say keep it as simple as possible and just swap the 3v

4.6 2V Price??

Yeah that's what I'm leaning towards. Although they seem to run for quite a bit more money.

Well definitely a needed up front suspension because you will be adding 100 pounds to the nose from the iron block. You'll need motor mounts that work for it, K member may be able to work. Full wiring harness, transmission that will fit it ect....

In other words....even though the 3V costs more for the engine, overall price will be probably cheaper and less of a headache to install

If you are going to go through the trouble of an engine swap do something unique. Like I'm thinking of doing a 5.4 4v swap.

I'm swapping but on a budget so I don't wana get too complicated. I'm gona swap a 3V cause that'll be the easiest to drop in and require the least amount of custom work.

Look in the "2000 GT 4.6 build or swap" thread" in this section, I talked more about it.

If you have a 3V stay with a 3V. Going to a 2V is going backwards and a 4V is a little complex for a S197. Yeah they are more but you'll need the PCM from a 2V, wiring harness, fuel stuffs among other things. Will be cheaper to just get a replacement 3V.

Then I would suggest selling your V6 and buying a V8. Will likely be cheaper and much less work. You'll still need to upgrade the PCM/harness/fuel/driveline/motor.

If it were me I would just trade for a GT. In the long run it will be cheaper and all you have to swap is the keys. Just saying

That and the re-sale on a nice clean GT is going to be higher than a nice clean V6 with a GT swap no matter how well the swap was done. Case in point is a V6 "Terminator" that was completely swapped from a wrecked donor down to the correct nuts/bolts and super low mileage recently sold for about half of what a real Terminator is worth on another forum I belong to. The guy drove it for about a month before just deciding to use it as a donor for a Terminator powered Bullitt because, in the end, it was still just a V6. The Bullitt is a numbered collector car which makes sense to swap the Terminator drivetrain into IMHO.
