What's the best way to get the engine affordably? just find a wrecked gt or what?
It's easiest to find a donor car so you can have everything there in hand for the swap.

Take the time to look for them, the deals are out there, people tend to be lazy and want others to do the work for them, the other benefits of getting a donor car is then you have the ability to part the remainder of the car out depending on where the damage is and once you part it out then you just scrap the car and still get some cash for it. If you go to copart.com you will see some of the cars they have and some of them sell for 3k.

You're right, those sound horrible 40k worry free miles. Man I wish I didn't get such a cheap set for my exhaust. lol

Looking forward to seeing how this turns out for you OP. Good luck with everything!
I completely agree! Pypes bombs are one the best sounding exhausts for GT's however Pypes exhaust for v6er's is a different story.

obxdude018 and I have made a deal for me to buy all the leftover V6 parts when he is done.

I can't wait to get rid of the automatic. It's really the biggest negative I have about my car!
