Title says it all!

Just want to see some opinions on what some of you guys would do in my position. I unfortunately love all fast cars and especially all stangs. I got a good down payment for a new gt or i could use that for f/i for my 02 gt...which would you guys do? Id love a termi but i cant ever find one with low miles and decent price and id rather buy a new car and know it hasn't been abused if i get another. (Also i wont sell my current gt, love it to much and babied it to much still low mileage)
Thanks for any and all opinions! Im 50/50 on the decision.

Go with a 5.0! New car, reliable, and you know it hasn't been abused plus you will have 2 mustangs!

Was in the same boat as you I looked into a 5.0 but still was 28,000 then 30,000 after tax CA sucks *** well I didn't wanna pay 410 a month and 170 in insurances. I decided to get get a 3v got a 09 for 17,000 with only 15,000 miles and I can't complain got a good deal in my opinion just look around see what pops up good luck man.

5.0. New car, never abused and the potential is massive. You'd have to drop quite a bit of coin to get a 2v to hang with a stock 5.0.

High mileage? I saw one here for 15500 but had like 212k :/. I want low. As in LOW miles and its going to be to hard to find. And even that like only 30k could be hard miles so im going to play it safe with getting a new gt. plus the termi will one day be a collectors car and ill want to preserve the miles! Lol

$20k seems like a steal for a low mileage 5.0.

That's a hard one. Car payments suck, factor in how much your insurance would go up and how much the car payment would take away from anything else. The 2V is light, quick for what it is and is a sleeper on the streets. You also already own it, I'm guessing insurance isn't much and its easy to build/modify them. But the new 5.0 is the new 5.0...

I know man I keep changing my mind! Lol.

My insurance is dropping this November so it would be about the same if not better anyway.
I just want to be in the 400-450 range until i can forge and all then go higher. But I want the reliability of the new 5.0 :/ lol such a hard decision...if only I didnt love all stangs.

After thinking about it ive decided to build the 2v...and decided I want to go supercharger instead of the more expensive and complicated turbo setup. Now my question is which I want, procharger or kenne bell. Love the whine of the kenne bell but can use the discount code for am with the pc. But the question is does the whistle and the bpv at least sound good too.

Your best bet budget wise is to put together a Vortech kit yourself from superchargersonline and then get a used headunit in good shape on the corral/CL/ebay/wherever. The headunit is the most expensive part of this build and at a lower boost level on a stock motor you really don't need an intercooler with a good tune and it'll put you right at 400whp. A non-intercooled setup going this route is easily below $2k installed yourself for the fuel system and errthang.

As for the reliability factor, the 2V is one of the most reliable engines there is. Treat it right and take care of it and you'll get a ****ton of mileage out of it.

You can buy a Coyote crate motor for around $7k...Why not drop a 5.0 in what you have now?

That's the engine alone, it will cost more for the entire swap.

So you will put $7K in to a SC and old motor but not a new motor that will be more reliable and have the ability to make WAY more HP?

The modulars are reliable and work well with boost especially low boost on a good tune plus it won't be 7k or fitment issues. And on top of it my gt only has 30k on er

I hear what you are saying, but I am on my 5th Mustang. My first was a 93 GT that I boosted. I put 5k into that motor so I could get about 450hp out of it. I wish I would have had a Coyote option.

I was just throwing that out there, I have seen several mustangs with the coyote and I am jealous. Here is an example...

Yeah, I hear that...I can not weld to save my life...I can measure, design, cut and fit, but welding... that is not my strong suit... I will have to get a fabricator to help me when I do decide to build one...

Your actual real world cost for a coyote swap is around 11k once your done with everything.

That is definitely DIY. I'd rather build a Teksid based 2V which is what I'm going to do. Or maybe a 4V all depending on cost/effectiveness. For the price of a set of Stage 3 PI heads I can get a set of C heads fully gone through/ported and ready to go. What I'm saying is the Coyote is a ridiculous motor but the cost effectiveness is not there. Maybe in 2 or 3 years when we can start finding wrecked 5.0 donor cars for the same $6-$7k price point as a wrecked Termi it will be. I'd still take the Termi swap over the Coyote honestly...

No. That's just the parts! Remember you need a new ecu and harness, a new exhaust, new K member which means new suspension, Nevermind if you want to address the transmission too... It's a lot more work than buying a 7k engine.

IDK, I guess I will find out when I finally do one...

Wow, never mind...I just read the rest of the artical and they are talking $12-$14K to do a swap right now...WOW!
