The dark side

I'm a 3.7 owner. But I've been contemplating a 5.0 swap. Has anyone ever did a 5.0 swap into another car? I'm thinking find a motor, wiring harness of sorts. What all goes into this? The 5.0 market is insane. 3.7... Well you gotta pull that out of thin air

I know the cost far outways the benefits... sell your 3.7 and buy a 5.0.... Or mod the s*** out of your 3.7 they're a stout little sixer

You can buy a used motor that you trust the health of, but assuming you buy everything new from FRPP, the swap will cost you over $11k in just the motor and ecu / wiring harness.

Tell Hasan to do the swap. He told me about his latest motor issues. I think it's time to get rid of the 3.7.

The ford racing control pack is only for the manual. Can you just swap the stuff from a donor car?
