Want to swap to a v8 but not sure what other mods will have to be done to make the swap? Do I have to swap my transmission from a v8 as well ?

I might as well be straight up honest with you. Do not do the swap. Just sell your car and buy the same model with a v8. By the time you're done with the swap. You would have spent enough money to buy 2 GTs.Berry_Eggo said:Want to swap to a v8 but not sure what other mods will have to be done to make the swap?

Lol. How many horses is your pony pushin David?As for the transmissions modular and V6 use a completely different bolt pattern (the V6 uses a sbf pattern exactly like the 302) so you will not be able to even try that..
The 4R70W trans does not break at 250hp lol it takes A LOT to kill one as long as you don't overheat it (V6 and V8 4R's have same internals just different casing which allows them to attach to the modular bolt pattern, and have a different tq converter supposedly)
Roush doesn't do anything to the transmissions
