My name's Zack and I'm new to the site and new to automotive work. I'm 2-3 weeks into the Automotive Technician class at my technical school and this is the first experience with the mechanical side of cars i've ever gotten. I've got a 2005 4.0 V-6 Mustang that I've had for about 3 years. I'm looking into turning it into my project car and working on it as I learn the different systems in class. The main problem/question I have is whether i can use my V-6 for a project car, or if it would just be better to get a used V-8 or GT. I'm planning to overhaul everything i can while i gain the experience. I'd like to build it up from the frame, but I don't know of any complications I'd have converting my V-6 into a beast. The overall idea is to work on it as i get the time and money for parts. Suggestions on whether i need a better starter car or if my car would work, and if so, where to begin on my car. Any and all help will be greatly appreciated, thanks guys.
