Can I convert my V6 to a V8 GT?


How much work would it be to put a 5.0L engine in my v6 96 Mustang. Or even just a V8 engine like the ones that are in the GTs. Thanks!

exhaust, gears and v8 swap...most common questions

you'd need a built rear or an 8.8 rear end.
a tune and someone to reprogram the computer n wat not for the car.
a tune
and an engine of course
in then end it'll be cheaper to sell your car for a v8. or it'll cost you like $4k
