neat motor swap

Post  dr's wife racing on August 27th 2013, 12:24 pm

Bought a 2002 mustang gt on the cheap.High miles auto with a dead 4.6 L. Car is other wise in good shape. It came with a low milage 5.4 L . We had to buy a the correct 5.4 fly wheel and and a different converter.Was able to get a stock one for something the guy at ptc just gave us a part # was only a $120. Any we ony had to swap a few things,nothing major. Every thing bolted right up. This thing is pretty fast not a drag car by any means but very inpressive. esp when rolling and you mash on it.
I'm sure this is not breaking news or the first time it has been done. I just haven't head of people doing it. It is simple and a good bang for the buck. Seems like this one should catch on.Esp since the 4.6 auto's are such pigs.
Don't know any thing to compair it to but a similar gain from from a 302 swap to a 351 W

May not be breaking news ward, but that is a neat swap. IMO, any kind of swap you can do to gain performance on the cheap is a great feeling! I had a little ranger and I did a f.i. 302 swap and added a little juice to it. The most fun I've ever had in a vehicle. Had less than 1500 bucks in the whole deal.

Getting tag title and ins. fixed up I'll fill you in on mpg. The cool thing is it looks pretty much like a 4.6 L. may make a work car out of it.

Sounds great. I have a pristine 2002 4.6L GT that is black. Sets in the garage and has 115,000 original miles on it.

That was a impulse deal but a quick in and out deal . Maybe use it for a work car if mpg is ok. My diesel bug is getting long in the tooth.

Everytime I go to my local U-pull-it I see a 2000 Lincoln Navigator with a DOHC 5.4 in it. It would be nice to pull it and stick it in the corner for a future project. Looks like it would have to come out through the bottom though, unless I saw through the radiator support. It would only cost about $250 to take it home.
