What is the 3.8 in? The 2010 V6 wasn't a 3.8...

Only if you want a long long road ahead of you- in a word? Yes. Is it cost effective? No. You would be better off buying a new v6 stang. Now you can get a 40th anni v6 and put the 3.9 in your car, or just build yours up solid.

Hiya, welcome to the site.

O I have a 1998 v6 the 3.8l and I wanted to see if it is possible to put the new v6 in my car
It would be far cheaper to build your motor and add a supercharger or turbo than to deal with installing a newer motor. They driveline is completely different as well as all the wiring. You would need a complete car just to get started, along with chassis work......

Get a good tune- some NO2, or a 3.8 supercoupe supercharger, bla bla bla under drive pullies, gears, locker subframes... Get what power you have to the ground...

you can do a ton more. As far as basics, stick with: a good tune, t-loc, gears, pulleys...

as far as the engines go, for the 2010 they offered a 210hp 4.0L engine... If your thinking of the engine being advertised on TV than your thinking of the 2011 model. Its a 305hp 3.7L engine

Henry, I would suggest getting that brand "D" motor out of your '95 when you are ready. We could be creative with the next motor build. A little high-compression, fast revving motor would be fun for street use.....

Oh, I'm very ready for this brand "D" to come out of my car. It will be a street car only so what your great mind can come up with is a go, hehe.
It only got to look stock-ish and pass emissions, sniffer. Just thought it would be fun to put this new engine into my car.

Guess I better start saving up my $$$ after this build, one car coming this way and one going back, haha

like most people are saying, build up your engine and if you do,switch to the intake from the 1999-04 v6's you would need the heads and the intake and all the wiring harnesses, switching the intake is good for 40 horses, if you want to go further, get a windstar intake from the mini vans and use that instead of the intake from the mustang
