Um..... Need some insight ASAP

Sooo I came across a 94 mustang 5.0 motor (302) for $150 that runs with 100K should I jump on that? I wasn't thinking about a engine swap from my 3.8 but it's sooooo cheap...... And it does run....

If you can hear it run.. For $150 you can flip it if nothing else.

That's kinda what I was thinking.... There's a video of it running but that doesn't say much.... The swap into my car is crazy expensive but I could just rebuild and sell right?

You could likely turn a profit and not do a thing but move it from location to location.

Well if I'm not mistaken I would need a new rearend, k member, brakes, and maybe a new tranny? Plus I've only got 50K on my V6..... But if I were to build it it would hang out for awhile (up to 5 years bc of school)

thats what im saying though. no reason to go broke. with that much time you can slowly collect the parts when deals come across. but either way what dead said about 350$+ is pretty accurate in my area also.
