There is ton of stuff that needs to be changed. I considered it but what really spooked me away was the wiring. I could get the engine and trans as well as the rearend and get a custom driveshaft made. The biggest thing for me though was getting the speedo to work with a 6 speed and all the electronics to work on the engine and still retaining my ac and other creature comforts


I going to swap in a 3v 4.6 and supercharge it, I believe it will be much more simple

+1 to going with a 4.6 3V over a 5.0 in our body style. I contemplated a 5.0 swap and my speed shop quoted me $13,000 with parts and labor... He also said that none of my gauges would work a long with other things since the electronics are different.

^ This would be the only way to do it.

There is a guy in Tulsa, OK who did the entire swap into his '06 GT and I mean the ENTIRE thing. He swapped in the interior and complete drivetrain. I called him and got a quote on doing the same to my car. He quoted me $20k to buy a donor 5.0 and put it into my car including the interior. Not a bad deal seeing as how a new 5.0 would run $30k+.

You might should consider doing a 3v 4.6. For the same price as a stock 5.0 swap you could do a built 4.6l swap and it would be much easier. I bought a donor GT for under $3k with everything I needed... that is cheaper than FI. The pricey part comes when you start to upgrade things....

$20K is so easy to beat it ain't funny...
I mean, it's only wrenching at that point, no fabricating.

This is what I want to do to my car... get a 5.4 from a Navigator (less than $1500) and use their much better aluminum intake and coil pack with own ECU and done.
No need for donor and head scratching.

You can even use a carburetor if you're in a cool State like FL.
Perfect set up for a classic car...

Where do you get 30K cost for a coyote 5.0??? Sealed engine 6,500 lol over 400 hp or 24,000 for a 575 hp engine? where are you getting 30,000 for the engine alone?

I'm pretty sure he meant an entire car for $30k...
