My point: it's cheaper to sell your V6 stang and buy a V8 stang than it is to do a swap.
i think that if you know what you want to do with the car... then its not a bad idea to drop a motor into it... this way you can get the one that you really want... but if your talking the bone stock 4.6L, then its going to be expensive... you maybe able to find a used one with low miles... this would make the price lower

02 stang, True Dual exhaust, CAI, 4.10 gears, 180 Thermostat, Diablosport tuned, dropped 2", Cross Drilled rotors, Zri Fuzion Tires, GT RSB + more
