you have coil over suspension and cut out the shock towers? itll be a lot of fabricating and cutting. the tranny hump will need to be cut and raised to fit the tranny properly. theres a few members on here that have done those swaps and thay can give you the finer details. good luck and welcome!
yeah, that's what i meant, just suspension...didn't know if the 4.6 was the same block or not, but looking at efi 5.0 pics online they do look different in width....don't want to do all that extra modifications i appreciate the help guys
The 4.6 mod motor is roughly 30% wider. Serious chassis modifications are necessary to expedite the swap, it's not a "bolt-in" by any stretch of the imagination. It can be done, but it'll take some time, a lot of patience and a lot of money. Unless you're commited to this swap, I'd consider all aspects very carefully.
andrew's right. try to sell or trade for a 302 setup. fits right in and eliminates some MAJOR headaches!! (better motor too....remember the recall of the 98 cobras because all the old 5.0's were whooping their ***!!!!)
