Smile Suggestions needed on a swap.

Hi guys,

This is my first time ever to be on a forum and posting so bare with me please.

I just recently bought this 08 Mustang V6 with standard transmission. Honestly I love this thing and planning on keeping it and make it a beast, not crazy beast just decent street beast lol. I have seen F-150 swaps on the mustang and the 5.0L and the 5.4L and all that. Any thing you guys suggest that I should start off with?

I was thinking a stage 2 clutch and a 8.8 dif. give me ideas please, thank you!

Leave the clutch and rear until you pick what motor you plan on swapping in.

For a 'beast' on the street. Just add a supercharger to your 4.0L. Much easier to do and cheaper than worrying about a V8 swap.

I was thinking a whole engine swap. On the rear end I would just upgrade the dif.

Yeah a supercharger would be a good idea as well, I wouldn't mind that.
