3v swap

I'm thinking of doing this swap in January hopefully if I do I always wanted a 3v mustang but they're still pretty expensive for me. What are your guys opinions and advice? Don't say 4v because It's not in my budget.

3v swap

Well it's very hard to use your stock wiring harness. You can't use your stock gas pedal. Can't use stock ucu without a special program. And there's other things I just can't remember. I had that idea too when I was offered a free 3500 mile 3v out of a 2005 mustang GT a while back did some research and it's very difficult. Do able but time and money is what's needed.
But if your interested here's a company that makes kits.

So rebuilding a 2v is better? How? Because I'm stuck between rebuilding mine or just swapping it out

You could drop in another 2v for well under 1,000. Easiest and cheapest since you said your on a budget... They made so many versions of the 2v they are cheap and plentiful

Vs a swap yes. If you are doing a swap it's a coyote. If not just build the 2v high compression and heads.

Okay, but wouldn't the 3v respond a lot more better to bolt ons and will produce more power than the 2v overall?

Lol you have the money to do a 3V but not a 4V? Ok... You have enough money to do a 4V swap if you have enough to do a 3V dude.

Anyway yeah as was referenced, there is the Logan kit that makes a 3V basically drop in.

Logan Motorsports - SCT Tuning

But its not worth your time or money. If you need a new motor, get a Vic motor and swap all your Stang parts onto it and roll. If you need more power than that on the cheap then Nitrous. If you can afford a blower, that will be way more economical than building the 4.6L.

If you are considering a Coyote swap, sell your car and buy a 11-14GT. It will be cheaper or at least cost neutral and you'll have a way better car in the 11+.

4v swap would be easier and cheaper than a 3v swap.
