hi, im new to this forum and i just wanted to ask some questions. i own a 2007 mustang gt but i plan to buy a 5.0 to mess around with. im planning on engine swapping to a 351w and i was wondering what i look for when i buy the motor. for example, do i look to see if it has low miles on it? rust? how do i know if it is durable or not? thanks

Low miles really has no bear on how well the motor was kept up. Any motor I buy, automatically gets a re-ring and bearings, regardless of the miles. Just for piece of mind.

You want to conduct a compression test on all 8 cylinders, and then make sure it has proper oil pressure. Otherwise, not much you can do without digging into the engine.
