Holy thread from 2006 Batman!

There are a few threads about the 4.6L swap. In the end, unless you have a wrekced 4.6L Mustang to pull from, and you are doing the work yourself - it will cost you more to swap than to mod the V6 to the same power level.

Ok...I'll put this as simple as possible....the only thing that's the same between a V6 and a GT is the basic body and interior layout...The GT uses a different ECU, different shocks/struts, different rear end, different drive shaft, different bellhousings (in some cases) different radiators, completely different wiring harnesses, different dash gauges, that's just to name the big ones.

The only years I'd say it would be justifiable to do a V6 to V8 swap is a 94/95 Mustang as the 5.0 parts are easy to attain and the V6 in those years, while still needing a lot of the parts listed, is partially setup more so than newer models to use the 5.0. Anything newer than that and you're looking at more parts and much, much, much more money.
