Have you though of trading in your car. i mean ford will not care much about the blown gasket and your could use the money u saved to buy a 99+ car. just a thought. I mean u can get a new v6 for like 13000 now so 99+ cant be to expensive.

i haven't done it, but a head gasket isn't the end of the world to change. if you got the space and tools, go for it.

That's a start on a 5.0. But can your tranny handle it?

yea.

They use t-5's in the gt's you know.
The only problem is our t-5's are pretty weak.
But with minor abuse our stock t-5's can handle a good amount of HP.
~300.
Give it the same rule of thumb as the rear end.

He'll have to upgrade the front end suspension though.

acutally, talking to people who have done it, u dont need to change the front suspension, well they didnt, he said u can keep the 7.5, but once u romp on it, it will break, the stock trans can handle it. all you really need is computer harnesses and engine, to make it emissions leagal is another storey, I got a list./
