So my 98 GT needs a new engine. I was looking into the M6007a50Na. I understand I need the control pack, alternator and PS/AC kits. Do I need anything else? Also, what shops do you guys recommend in Miami to do this job? I was thinking on adding headers but with new engine how do I know what would fix?

Thanks for your help. All I have seen for good places are up in Broward. Trying to find a place in Miami since I will have to tow the car but if I have no choice I will tow it to Broward as long as is a reputable place to do the swap.

Imo while you have the engine that u want outside the car is when i would install the headers. If they are long tube u will need a shorty x pipe then the rest of the exhaust.

Ok i did my research its the 5.0 4v.....besides ecu harness with coils and fuel line modification since our years it return style u may need modifying motor mounts to have it fit as well as electronic modules for the electronic throttle the sensors that go on the pedal and all the other pretty things to make that motor run

Edison 1 trick pony is good. They specialize in mustangs and I have a few more numbers on my laptop I can give you when I get home I'm on my mobile. Didn't know there were so many Miami guys on here we all need to meet up!

The problem with the engine is that I took it to a mechanic in Hialeah and they did a compression test and broked one spark plug thread. The engine has 200k miles so I guess is better for me to go ahead with a new engine. The M6007a50na is the so called aluminiator with 412 hp. But if I really have to do all those changes I don't think is a good idea then. All I have seen is I have to buy 3 kits and that the engine will go perfectly. I have also heard about blow by racing but the towing will be about $200... Ouch. So many things to think about but that engine is sweet. There's another engine (sc instead of na) that the compression is 9:1 instead of 11:1

Before you go crazy with it how does your car look? Is it worth all the trouble of looking and installing a new engine or just buying maybe a different GT? Its a hassle what you're about to stress yourself out over so be prepared broseph

Thought about that. The car outside is 8/10 and interior is 9.5/10 and is the one with 17' rims, leather seats and the one that came with premium sound. Also, if I use the same $$ I can buy a used Cobra but with miles in the engine and without really knowing what problems will come with. If I get this engine I will have 2 yrs/24k miles warranty. It will be like buying a new car in a way.

imo, you can buy new heads for the stang, since they only stripped one spark plug entry it could always be fixed with the rethreading stuff however i dont like to compromise it, hence y i suggest new heads. and if you are spending 8k or so for a motor, 1500 for tfs heads, 600 for cams, 150 for valve springs, could beef up the internals like forged crank and rods, drop the compression since pi heads will raise it to 10.5:1 unless u want that high of a compression to go on boost later, i mean really and truly its up to you, if my head goes you can bet imma replace my pi heads with another set and possibley upgrade the heads before install.

eddison pony imo is overpriced on their things, some of the things they sell for parts i can find cheaper on cl or at a junkyard cause practically they are a junkyard. however they do good work. as to all of us in miami, we should pm each other numbers so we could meet up and chill.

Yea man def ill send you my number now my car will be out of the shop this week but I still have a lot of junkyard diving to do to fix the interior that got destroyed from the impact. As for Edison they are overpriced on parts but the owner joe is a down home dude to talk to and knows his **** on repairs. He's an old school type of guy from what I've gathered. Since you're in Miami man if you need a hand finding parts or anything hit me up ill help you look!

So I called BBR but they really don't know what they need to do since they wanted me to bring the car and starting working without making a quote. In the other hand power by the hour in Boyton knows more about it since the owner has a 97 cobra. Let you guys know later what I will do.

I feel ya, well OP... Just my .02, spend the extra money on towing to get to a reputable shop like bbr, I have plenty experience with Miami, and I have nothing good to say about any shops/dealers out of there
