  1. V6 Tech
    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...

    Hey guys i just want to know the diffrence between a 3.8L V6 and the 3.9L in the 99-04. I have a 2000 mustang that I crashed and ruined the front end but it didn't touch the motor and it looks like it will work perfect. I am going to buy a 2004 mustang with a 3.9 but the engine needs a rebuild...

    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...

    Hey guys, my son and I are new to the group. My son just purchased a 98 coupe with a blown 3.8 engine and wants to swap in an 3.8 engine from a 95. I've checked the engine history and it looks like only slight mods were done to the engine over that time period. Will the 95 3.8 fit into the 98...

    I was thinking about junking my 97 3.8 for a newer 3.8 with split port or possibly the 3.9L. Then I read something about a 4.2L swap. So I looked up some specs, the 4.2L in a 2000 F-150 only has like 10 more HP than the early 00's mustang 3.8's. So I was just wondering if the 4.2L is even worth...

    I have read some blogs about this on here and most people state go get a v8. Let me start by saying I already got a 2006 GT vert and I'm happy with it! But I have always wanted to swap the 3.8 for a 4.6 in my 1996 mustang. I love that car to death and I just need to know some basics here. I know...
