It really is pointless to swap an engine on a V6. The time, money, and overall work you would have to do is pointless compared to selling it and using that money toward a GT of equal or lower miles.

How hard is it to swap the gt motor into a similar yr v6? and would it just be easier and cheaper to buy a gt?

it should be pretty easy if you have a donor car and would be cheaper than getting a GT (depending on condition) if you can do everything yourself. but if you're putting any kind of money into it, you might as well just turbo a 6. You'll end up with quite a bit more power than a mildly modded 99-04 GT anyway.

GT doesn't mean "im better than your v6" it just means i'm more powerful if you're not gonna mess with anything... most people i know that have a GT dont do anything to it just because they think it'll beat any v6 on the road... you throw 1 or 2 k at a v6 and you'll make any overconfident stock v8 owner tremble...

was thinking the exact same thing. If your gonna do a swap, going 2v isn't worth the time and money. At least a 4v or your wasting your time.

That picture is pretty badass too chris, both cars look good. Where are your black bullets on the sixer?

take it from someone who has went from a 3.8v6 to 4.6 2v then 5.4 4v now back to 4.6 KEEP YOUR V6!!!!!

or go buy a vette like i did when ur mustang wont keep running. i picked up a 01 c6 vette for 14k from the dealership. and its fullcoverage insurance is cheaper than my "v6" libility.... the stock c5 falls as a luxury car
