What engines from what cars could fit in my car that are bigger than a 3.8 V6 without having to trim the frame or anything down?

I've heard a lot about taking a old police Crown Victoria and doing an engine swap, would that have any real compatability issues? Cause that's a pretty easy parts car to get.

I'm honestly not sure... all I've heard from some of my friends that have Mustangs is that it's a pretty common swap.

Alright! What all would you have to change to make the car compatible with the engine? I know you have to calibrate the speedometer and whatnot, but what else would you have to do?

swap trans, fuel system, i'd do the rear as well, ecu, harness...handful of other things...you'd want a donor car to be easier. it's a headache lol

Ahh, so it'd probably just be better to swap the car for a GT altogether? Cause I like the year model of my car and the GTs and V6s run for about the same.

the 5.4 probably would only get slightly less than the 4.6 v8's.
you might be getting 12 if you put 3.73 or 4.10 gearing in the back.

You can fit a lot of engines in our cars. 4.2, 5.0, 4.6, 5.4, 5.8 thier is even a V10 Ford made and put in some of the 2000 Mustangs and I think it was nicknamed the "Mule." I've even heard of people taking old 427's and 429's out of old Ford muscle cars and swapping those in.
