Engine rebuild costs, 1994-98 Mustang GT

My plan for the next year or so is to sell my 96 V6 and buy a 94-98 GT. I want a cheap one so I can do some of my own work on it. The biggest thing I would like to do is an engine rebuild. I don't think I necessarily need to have it rebuilt strictly for performance, just a basic rebuild with maybe an upgrade or two. What would the total costs be for parts and labor (I will be getting this done professionally, I am in no way able to do this myself)?

It really depends on the condition the engine is in and the work that needs to be done to it. It could cost as little as $1,200 or up to around $3,000. For your situation I would guess around $1,800, but don't quote me on that, like I said it really depends on the engines condition. Good luck!

The 94-98 GT have the weakest engines ever offered in the 82 and newer GT Mustangs. Go 99+ if you want a 4.6L or 87-89 if you want a Fox. Seriously, skip the mid 90's 4.6L at all costs.

1988 Mustang LX coupe will miss you greatly

2004 Mazda 6s 5 door Sport w/5spd/3.0/RX8wheels/Kon/Eibach/and then some

96-98 GT's had what is now know as non power improved engines. The heads, intakes, and cams were very poor. The 4.6L only made 215hp and 285lb-ft. This is comparable to the 5.0 but, they weighed more and made their power much higher in the RPMs than the old pushrod 5.0.
