Trying to motor swap a 98 gt need help

(1/1)

nasty98:
I am trying to swap the 4.6l sohc cause it needs head work and I want more power, so I want advice of what I would have to do in order to swap a later model cobra motor in it or maybe even the 5.4l.  I don't know what I will need to make it work and I would like some help.

Soaring:
For the Cobra swap,  it will run off your existing wiring harness (need to lengthen the coolant temp harness and coil pack). It'll run off your stock ECU, but i do suggest getting an SCT tune.

It's an easy swap, provided you get all the accessories with it.

what is the allowed year I can go up to?

03SoniCobra:
im not sure about a cobra/lightning engine/trans even fitting into a 98 without modifying the motor mounts....but whatever engine you get, make sure you get the main wiring harness, ECU, PCM, Steering column, Key, & Gauge Cluster...you will need all this stuff because of the PATS.

nasty98:
but I would imagine that it would bolt right up cause its a 4.6 as well, but I would have to make sure everything is copastetic if not then I'm without a whip
