Build 2v or 4v Swap. Don't know which route to take?
Here's the deal. I have a 1999 Mustang GT with 160K on the Body & Trans (Trans needs rebuilt, bad Synchros) & 80K on the 2000 4.6L thats inside.
I have 5,000K to spend and I can't decide on what to do...???
1. I've been contemplating back & worth weather to just rebuild the T-45 myself with a rebuild kit or change over & make the T-56 swap. I was also going to purchase the Tork Tech Terminator kit to put the 03/04 Eaton M112 S/C on the 2v 4.6L. (Anyone heard of this an know any numbers of HP? & TQ?)
2. Just flat out find a 03/04 Cobra 4.6L DOHC with a T-56, BUT THEY ARE SO DAMN Expensive. I can't find one for less than 8K all I have is 5K (Btw, if anyone knows or has a deal for me... Hook it up)
What do you guys think? I need thoughts & input.

As far as getting a forged cobra engine and t-56 you will be very hard pressed to do that for 5k.. Honestly, 5k isn't a lot but it's enough to get you a nice rebuild or some fresh parts. The t56 swap will take a good chunk from that right away.. You can probably find a 4v for fairly cheap (non 03/04) as well.. Obviously if you have the knowledge you can do the work yourself which is where the majority of the money will be spent if you pay a shop..

youre gonna have to choose one or the other and then save some more. a t56 swap is gonna be probaby 3-4 maybe more, since you have to get a new ds and some other stuff. you might also maybe want to look into a vortech or procharger because those superchargers are a lot cheaper than the tork tech kit

However, if you're persistent and check the various classifieds on all of the mustang forums you can sometimes come across some pretty good deals. I searched for a few months for mine and ended up finding it on another forum and paid $1700 for it. Already has the upgraded input shaft and came with an Alum DS, Harness, clutch, and mounting bracket.
