I have a 1995 Ford Mustang base model:
Engine: 3.8 V6 5 speed Standard
Want:Ford Gt 5.0
Can i change my v6 with a 5.0 and retain same tranny? or do i have to change it out and if so what transmission do i require?
i know you have heard this but your best bet is to just sell the V6 and buy a 5.0 GT it would be cheaper. i dont believe the tranny would even fit on the GT motor and you would still have to change out your rear end. you could probably sell you V6 for 2-3 thousand and pick up a 5.0 for about 3-5 thousand maybe even less. but i do know that those years GT used a T5 transmission.
the bell housing bolt pattern and crank pilot on the 3.8 v6 and the 5.0 v8 are the same.
a 5.0 will bolt up to your current tranny.
with a 5.0 hooked to the stock v6 drive-train you will have a tire blazing street-rod.
