I was looking to buy an engine for my 97 mustang gt. I was going to buy one from autozone or advanced auto parts. I want to know how much a 4.6 dohc V8 for a 97 mustang would cost?

I really wouldn't put much faith in rebuilt engine from Autozone. If I had to buy a used engine I would go with a Jasper unit or I would buy a junkyard engine and then have it professionally rebuilt buy a reputable race shop.

BTW a remanufactuered (not rebuilt) DOHC 4.6L will cost well over $4000, probably closer to $6k These engines are not Chevy smallblocks and command much higher prices.

i know the sohc cost atleast $3-4k from autozone. Dont forget for the swap you need a wiring harness, computer, i believe different gauge cluster. It might be cheaper to swap in a 02-04 gt motor(99-01 had problems with spark plug blow out) which will drop right in, put a set of stg 2 cams and upgraded springs(needed along with a tune for stg 2 cams), longtube headers, and gears.

fodadddys right, it will cost atleast 4k if not more for the cobra motor.
