  1. Classic Tech
    I just started a large total restoration project on a 73 mustang. I know I can swap rear disc brakes from a 94 to 98 mustang to fit my 73. Was wondering about other swaps such as a rack and pinion or maybe even a k member or sway bars. If I can save money scavenging bone yards instead of buying...

    I was shooting the breeze today at my local auto zone and one of the employees said "you know what would be cool, is to swap a F-150 3.5 Ecoboost into your 2002 V6 3.8L". Please forgive me my knowledge of swapping motors is very green to say the least. His response was after I said I would like...

    Long story short im gonna be doing a 88 turbo coupe drivetrain swap soon. Its hydraulic in the turbo coupe but the fox body is going to be cable. Currently the fox body has no drivetrain but was a stick car so it has the pedals but thats it. I have a bare T5 cable bellhousing but thats all I...

    Hi Everyone, I have a 2011 Mustang 5.0 that was ordered new and delivered in Fall of 2010. It's probably part of the first batch off the line. As of right now, every suspension component in the car has swapped out with the exception of the front lower control arm. I know that the 2011 models...

    I decided to go with the 347 stroker after everything i read here. I have one problem. The oil sump is larger on the new set up. It is also on the rear side of the motor. It doesn't fit with the steering linkage. I know we need more oil for this set up. What are my choices now? Can I simply...

    Hi all, I've got a new crate engine in my 2011 Coyote. It's got the 2015 cams/Phasers/chains etc. I've been told I need to change back to 11-14 VCT for the engine to run properly. I keep getting bank 1 and 2 intake cams over retarded codes. I've heard that the S550 exhaust cams can be used...

    Hello All, I have not posted on here in YEARS due to college but now that's behind me and I'm working on the mustang again. I had the recent displeasure of my engine dropping a valve and ruining the motor. I now have the whole drivetrain out and am working on what to do for my rear end. I...
  9. 2005-2010 Mustang GT Tech
    Last week I had some major engine issues. I dropped a valve into the cylinder and tore up my cylinder head and the block as well. Found a cheap low milage doner car on craigslist and I will be doing a swap soon. I have a 2005 Mustang 4.6 (5 speed) and will be swapping it to a 2006 Mustang 4.6 (5...

    Hello Everyone, I'm new to this forum, but I've always read forums in the past. I just purchased an '89 LX 5.0 last Thursday. I bought it knowing I had to do some work to it, but had thought that it was a road ready project. That's not the case. I brought it to be inspected this week and the...

    Hey guys! I currently have a 289 V8 in my 1966 mustang. I am looking at getting a bigger engine to put in. I was looking at a 302 or a 347. Does anyone know if I were to go with the 347 would I need to change anything in the engine bay such as motor mounts? I've read that with the 302 nothing...

    I have a 1998 V6 Mustang and on the way to my new job the rear gears blew. I was thinking of swapping off my rear end from my 96, it has absolutely no play from the shaft to the wheels but it seems as though the 96 is squared off at the top mounts. Other than that I have found an 8.8 assembly I...
  13. V6 Tech
    I have and 84 Mustang with a 3.8 V6 and auto transmission. I found a 96 mustang with a V6 and manual transmission. I was just wondering how hard it would to swap engines and transmissions. So what are the differences and steps or tips to do the job?

    Hey all, in the future I plan on picking up a second 1994-1995 Mustang GT to accompany the current '95 GTS. I'll be swapping in a 4.6 DOHC I'm in the process of building (slowly...) and I've been doing as much research as possible before starting this and asking to see if anyone else has done...

I have finished about %60 of the swap and have some concerns. 1st the totaled 94' I received as the doner car for around $800.

    Hey guys, haven't posted on here in a bit. Wasn't sure how to post anywhere else but have a question or so. I have a 2000 v6, love the car, but am running into issues. I want to put money into it, but I don't at the same time because it's only a v6. So I was going to hold off. Now the CEL is on...

    I knowits possible I know its been talked about before. I need to know where to start. and where you hook the vac lines from the supercharger. only swaps I have done were plug and play so I would like some advice and feedback.

    I know that you need the larger sn95 master cylinder in order to run rear disk. I eventually want to get rear end disk on my fox, but I don't have the funds for it right now. My current stock master cylinder is going bad and I need to replace it, so can I swap in the SN95 master cylinder now and...
  20. 4.6L Tech
    I was looking for someone that could possibly give me a little more insight into the possibilities of a 5.4 swap. I have a 00' GT Standard, my first Stang, with a gone motor(dreaded bearings) and for the time being I'm headed to the yards to find another 4.6 to drop in. But, I want to look into...
