Default Can I turn my SOHC to DOHC

I have a 98' GT. Is there any possible way to turn my SOHC to a DOHC without buying a new engine?

id say it would be cheaper and easier to buy a cobra with DOHC and sell your GT. Or find a salvaged wrecked cobra and use it as a donor.

do some searching on here i promise you will find atleast 190million threads on this.. but anyway yes its possible but i would be willing to bet that your pockit book will tell you other wise and if you have the dough to do it why not just build your 2v up and whip the hell out of the 4v guys cuz u know they will be pissed after that anyway use your search man you will find a ton of stuff on this as its been answered a million times but good luck on whatecver you decide to do

The only thing that should remain from your 2v drivetrain when moving to a stout 4v is the block, the driveshaft, and the 8.8 rear differential.

EVERYTHING else goes away, and that really should include the transmission, clutch, and everything to do with the engine, fuel system and engine control system.

And yes, this is all quite possible to do, but extremely expensive (if done right) or extremely labor-intensive and PRETTY expensive (if done shade-tree-frankenstein from a variety of junkyard sources).

Wisest choice is to pick your horsepower goals and then seek advice as to how to achieve those goals (and what sort of driving you are going to do to USE those goals).
