you would probably be better off buying a short or longblock from somewhere like rpm-mustangs.com or supersix

technically you have to at least cut and weld on new flanges on the exhaust manifolds so technically you do have to change something.

Personally I would not add any poweradders like a TT or a S/C with that many miles on it. You engine is tired by then. I would buy a new engine (new 3.8 or for the same price get a 4.2) and put it on then. If you dont want to do that, Get Forged Internals, and at least a stage 2+ power pak for it.

Then how is he gonna get the turbo on the exhaust manifolds? Rectangle flanges vs. Circular... I don't think that fits to well.

But who am I to guess?

His twin turbo kit you need to get some new ac lines, or delete your ac, and also relocate your abs if you have it.

I think 99+ are all equipped with abs standard I do know the 94-98 v6's don't have abs.

Good way to check go out somewhere in a large empty place put water down over a large area. Drive over it at a semi slow/decent speed, and slam on the brakes. If your wheels lock up. You don't have it. Well thats how I would check. The ABS thing is somewhere by the front of your block I think on the right hand side if your looking at it.
