2010 Shelby complete drivetrain in 2010 GT

Good evening all,

So I originally had a plan to put a set of 35k miles 03 cobra heads on my 2010 GT, but I recently got ahold of an opportunity for a wrecked 2010 GT500 with everything from the driveshaft to the motor itself still 100%, for under $10,000, and started thinking that maybe I should just sell the heads with all internals and timing accessories for $1500-$2000 and buy the GT500 then just swap out everything including the wireharness', that way ill basically have a sleeper GT500, rather than the cobra heads where I would have to make modifications, I would think everything from the GT500 would just slip in w/o issues.

I would appreciate as much input as possible on this, if anyone has done it or knows about it, is it worth it? Is there anything i should know for the swap, any modifications necessary? As much input as possible please and thank you

Sounds like a headache to me. 100% you say? Meaning 100% intact or 100% operational?

I know the electrical work in it will take a while but I though that if I do it ill do it during the winter, regardless I wont have the car on the road when its snowing, and I figured that ill make the money back when I, scrap the body of the gt500 and sell my 4.6 with 5speed trans,

if you're confident in handling the electrical, particularly theft control and the integration of ECM and SJB stuff, I'd say this is an awesome plan. Do it all, everything in the Shelby is better than the crap you're taking out of the 2010 GT.

Make a build thread here so we can follow your progress.

Lol I wouldn't scrap it.... That's what people did to their boss and Machs back than and now a shell cost bout 20k. I'd keep it for a while if you have room for it as in the future you'll regret if you scrap it.

I know and I hate that its totaled, but the quarter panels are crumpled, and the rearend is completely smashed in as well as half of the roof. Either way ill figure it out once I got everything I need out of it, if I go through with it, and thanks for the tip

I'm no electrical genius, but im confident I can handle it, and If something is off, I got a buddy thats a retired Ford master tech(who actually taught me everything I know) I think itll take me a while but thats why I decided it would be best for the winter when my car would just be sitting regardless, I just wanna make sure that if there are any issues I would encounter, I can prepare for it beforehand, and when I start it ill definitely make a build thread

I am sure it can be done, but will be a lot of work. Just helped my brother in law swap engines in his focus.
