use search and check out the archives. Q comes up every month or so . ..


Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion. Jer 22:13, 15-17

3.8L to 5.0L Swap in a 94-95 Mustang



This page will cover the basics of doing the swap.



First off the List of parts...

***************************************

Cheaper to buy a v8 car . . . Unless you're doing a show/race car . . .

I was told it is necessary to purchase a $2300 swap kit when switching from a 3.8 in my 1996 mustang to the 4.6 V8...is this true? Also, when I do this, will I have to change the existing computer to fit the V8? I heard this ranges in cost from $75-$500. If anyone could help, I would greatly appreciate it!

you used to be able to get it from Ford Racing, but it doesn't come with everything.

Computer depends on year and local salvage prices.
