Only 5 grand? You're about 300% short of what the average engine swap ends up costing.

Me? I never said anything of the sort. And did you even read the guys thread before you started spouting off inaccurate information? He already has a donor car that he will pull majority of the parts out of including the motor/trans. So whats $5000?

The hell you did. Never have I seen an engine swap costing anywhere even in the ballpark of $150,000. Exaggeration or not

I have no idea where you got $150,000.00 from. My math said $15 grand - and checked again - still does.

That is about the number you guys told me when I had a 6 and wanted to swap in an 8.

I wouldn't consider a S197 sexy, not the 05-09 at least. I also wouldn't consider all fox body mustangs sexy either.

And I have a 5.0 and know how bad they sound.

Roush mufflers or Borla FTW!
