V6 to v8 swap. 2014.

Do you think pulling my v6 out of my new 2014 convertible and replacing with a 2010 roush motor/Trans, would be a money maker? I bought the v6 for 16k. Spend 10k on a drive train. Think I could pull profit?

I highly doubt that a mustang V6 with a roush V8 swap would sell for over 26k although you never know I guess. I just wouldn't even think about paying anywhere near that considering that cars you can buy in that price range that are somewhat stock and haven't been messed with as far as swapping major components goes.

How many V6 to V8 swap threads can we make in a day? Lol.

I don't know about the general public, but I would not buy a car some Joe Schmo pieced together for over $26,000 when I could get an actual 2010 Roush Mustang for $29,000.

This. No one wants the Frankenstein car. It goes back to the myth that adding modifications improves your car's value. It doesnt. It reduces it because the dealer has to then find that 1 person that likes what you did enough to shell out the money for it.

That takes too much time. Time is money.

Why would you want a 2010 roush?

I agree with Roush. 2010 was before the 5.0, it is not worth it at all to swap in.

Th e 2010 roush just because you can find them priced rather cheap on ebay with engine and trans. maybe it would be my way to get a 40k car for the price I can build it for. Swapping an engine/Trans and electronics is easy for me. But yes it is all about money. And if I could not make profit then I would be stuck with a nice Frankenstein ride..

Im just not understanding this. Why???
There is nothing special about a 2010 roush mustang. If you are going to spend the money, do a coyote swap. Alot better, and faster

The only thing special about the 2010 Roush is the damn "signature" all over the b*tch and the overall genuine-ness of it being a Roush car.

The blower, suspension, body kit, etc. can all be had for much cheaper haha...

A bank will only finance KBB of the car, and as far as they're concerned its still a V6. You're basically asking a buyer to pay cash for your frankencar at that point ... no deal.

I don't see how it could be worth more? You're taking an engine 4 years old, which is illegal as I understand it from emission standpoint, and thinking your going to make money because of the Roush name?

This just screams silly. Nothing about this seems logical.

Don't do it. Don't do a Coyote swap either. My 427R isn't worth 30K even with 500 horses.

Either trade it in or buy a 5.0 or a genuine Roush. Don't mickey mouse your car..you'll never get out of it what you put in it.

I must commend you however on your choice of Roush performance.

Yes. With stock internals, that 4.6 couldn't handle 500 at the wheels..

I know. The M90 will never get you to 500 at the wheels anyways.

On the topic of the M90... Wouldn't it be a good blower for a 3v with the stock bottom end? As its max output = max power the stock bottom end can handle?

I imagine if you put a w140ax on a stock 3v you'd have to run low boost & its a heavier blower, also much more expensive.

Does that make sense or does the M90 just not make good power at all?

My old 3v with full exhaust M90 and 2.49 blower pulley, and full boltons made 430 SAE corrected.

I figured it didn't heat soak so well. But for the bold question, for the money would it still be a good blower on the stock block or just pay few grand more and run bigger blower lower boost? With centrifugal out of the equation

Depends on your goals. Will you be happy with 430-440 and that's it? The M90 is maxed out at that point.

If so then ehhhhh,
Best bet is go with the 2.3l whipple and leave the M90 on the shelf

The M90 was good for it's time but I wouldn't buy one now with all the other options out there. I believe Roush uses TVS now.

Bc the coyote is where it's at. JK
Just wanted something faster was not impressed with the power of the 3v at all. It was a fun short burst car. Fun car though but wanted more

Built motor, e85, nitrous coyote now

Makes sense. The most I do is short bursts so it works for me. Sounds like the sky's the limit for you now. Good luck with it. You can get some crazy horsepower from those coyote's.

M90 is too small anyway. And the original post makes me almost think this is a troll post... If the OP wants a faster car, sell the V6 in good shape for mid-high $teens and then turn around and buy a 11/12 Coyote. Done. I could see someone wanting to swap in a 5.0 but not a 4.6L, that's just idiotic. Not to mention the Cyclone is going to be right there with the 4.6...

I feel like boosting the 3.7 would make more sense than boosting the 4.6

Not to mention the Cyclone internals are WAY stronger than the 3V. The LPF car was well over 550whp when they pulled the motor for a built one. On stock heads/cams...
