Alright so let me start off by saying I’m no master mechanic, I know my way around a car for the most part, but I have never swapped anything of this magnitude.
I bought a 2001 3.8 v6 mustang that has been ragged out, got it for a couple hundred bucks so not a big investment to start with. Motor is knocking so I want to put a v8 in it, however I know mustangs are modular cars and a lot of parts interchange with certain year models and etc.. I have a 94 5.0 non H/O motor, auto transmission, harness and ecu out of an Explorer. If anyone on here has attempted this or has enough knowledge to tell me if I am wasting my time? Will the motor work in my car? What type of modifications am I going to have to do to make it work? I have so many questions but no one to ask so I’m going out on a limb here before I end up with a yard ornament because I underestimated what I’ve gotten myself into. Please anyone or anything is helpful
