Well a complete 03/04 engine trans will cost you a hefty price, but not only that you have to get the trans mounts, throttle/cruise cables, coolant container for SC, etc. There is a list of parts that you will need for that setup. If you do the work and have the know how then a 3650 rebuild kit is about 400.00. You could do a Mark swap with a stroker kit. You could stroke the 2v and add some cams. Depends on what some money means? If you want a 4v then you could find a manual Mach 1 motor and or N/A cobra motor for a decent price and procharge it. Options are as endless as the budget. But btw 95k is nothing on todays motors. I could tear that down and show you the factory bore marks. So it depends on budget and overall performance needs.

How does that work with the 2v Ecu where would you get the computer for the 4v I've heard that they are hard to find and people have problems with that conversion

I had to flash tune it. I used a SCT xcal 2. VMP Tuning did my tune.You can source a ECM from a Mach 1, but you would need to have the PATS turned off I believe. Also unless you get an engine harness you would will need to turn off the Knock sensors if possible.

Now the GT ECM does run the 4v with no huge issues. If you use 24lbs injectors with MAF then you will burn fuel like no tomorrow. You will have to have it tuned. I have to do another update on the write up about this and some other things that had been brought to my attention.

2002 Mustang GT DOHC swap

The video is of startup after exhaust installed. It is running on the GT ecm.
