I really hate to say this:::

It would really behoove you to either sell your car and use the money for a down payment or just trade in your car for a 5.0

You could try to find an engine-Transmission- Rear- Exhaust system-computers- wiring system-cooling system-Drive shaft at a junk yard and try putting it in your car. That is if you have a place and all of the tools you will need.

I'm guessing by the time you do all that you will have spent more money then just doing what I said at first.
Just try finding a good 2011 up gt that you would like and buy it.

Believe me

Do you have all of the tools???
Do you have a sturdy engine hoist???
Do you have a place to do the swap???

This is not easy like the old non-computer cars.
If you were going to use a small block Chevy with a carburetor and a 4-speed manual it would be cheaper and easier then using a 5.0 that requires a computer and tuning.

Of course it can be done using a 5.0 as long as you know what it involves.
It will be expensive and probably not as good as buying a GT to start with.
I wish you all the luck in the world if you want to do it. I just can't reason "WHY"

The reason is just want more power but selling this car won't benefit me because the car ain't worth nothing instead of getting rid of the car just take my time with it and build something I will be happy with

Getting an old motor with a carb would be easier

Yes, Find an older engine and drive train.

You may have to weld motor mounts and have a drive shaft either made or one cut down. As long as you have another car to drive, This would be a good project.
I'm sure there are some car clubs around your area that you could join and get to know some street rodders or old timers to give you some advice on where to get things you can't do done for you.
Good luck.
Ronnie

The coyote should drop in with no motor mount mods, theyre from the same chassis, D&D performance sells a t56 tranny kit for swaps and it comes with aluminum driveshaft and whatnot for 1k I think

You'll need some heavy suspension upgrades too for the extra weight and power...

I mean if you think about it right there your at 10,300 I would factor in another 5-7 k between exhuast, misc. engine components such as radiator, etc. and there are always going to be small things that will add up. Right there you are at 15-17 K for the swap. I've seen used 5.0's sell for low 20's and I'm sure your car is worth at least 5 k. Now if you want to do it just to do it I would say go for it but I wouldn't choose it as the more 'cost effective' option.

A local forum I'm on a guy did a 5.0 swap in a fox and he actually used a 5.0 out of a truck. I haven't read much into it but he said there a lot cheaper and with a few small upgrades can basically be made into a 5.0. So if your serious about doing the swap I would read about 5.0 swaps in other cars to see what worked for them and what didn't. I want to say he said he paid around 4 k for the truck motor opposed to 8-10 that people want for the mustang 5.0s.

It would be so expensive to do that. It is really better to try and sell the car and get a V8. Save yourself the heartache.

I traded my old 07 V6, got money out of it and used it towards a 2014 GT that I have now. I'm glad I did that instead of thinking about doing a whole motor swap lol.

Sounds like a long run for a short slide. If it were me, I'd just pony up for a newer car. But I'm sure it can be done, just depends on how bad you want it.
