Default Yet another Mark VIII swap thread

Thanks to those who have already made a Mark VIII 4V DOHC engine swap thread. The information that you have provided has been very helpful in my quest. I recently bought a '96 GT with a bad engine. So today I went and picked up a 64K-mile '98 Mark VIII 4V DOHC engine. Here is the beginning of the story:

First the car:

Now the engine:

Another:

Yet another:

Getting tired of seeing it yet?

I thought that these parts might come in handy:

The exhaust manifolds that will have to go. They look like they flow decently:

So that's it for now. I have to pick up some Cobra exhaust manifolds and I'm not sure about the oil pan/oil pickup issue yet.

I'll post more as I make progress.

Have fun. I just used my 96 GT Oil pan/pickup tube. Should work in your case too.

The salvage yard cut the throttle cable. Any ideas on where to get one of these?

Last night I won a pair of '98 Cobra exhaust manifolds on eBay. Today, I found a '98 Mark VIII throttle cable on another forum for $20. Today I am going to buy a used engine hoist Things are beginning to come together. Maybe I will start the pulling this week.

Two reasons; (1) money, and (2) it's eventually going to my son as a first car. I don't want to give him a 300+ horsepower car to learn to drive with. Plus the heat and trying to work on anything underhood always seems to get blocked by headers. I've had them on numerous cars.

i got my headers and my midpipe for about $300 shipped from summit, same as ctgreddy IIRC...

just a though with the 4V motor, upgrade to the better 97/98 radiator fan, the 96's had an issue with overheating, i got one from a junkyard for $15 and it drops right in
