i hate to be hostile, but leave. just leave. you must be smoking something.

but seriously, not my cup of tea (nor anyone else's for that matter)

but nobody here has ever done that swap or even thought about it, so you wont be able to find much help here

mmk their are gonna be the obvious new tranny new drive shaft new engine... new ecu and wiring harness... the accessories are gonna have to come of the old engine... so basically the whole heart needs to come out and you need to have an empty shell... then put the silvias heart into it stang... whats the engine code on the s15 motor?

just wonderin... also a lot of sixers say stay true to the nature and put in a high performance sixer... i think it would be a fun challenge to drop a vr6 turbo in



eff it, bought a wrx, finally.

This would cost you more money than probably importing a skyline ....

if your on here in the first place asking what it would take to put that motor in a mustang you most definately dont have the knowledge or experience to be doing anything like that in the first place

ok i didnt see it watching tokyo drift. I thought it would be cool and something different every ones got a v8 or some shit. The engine will cost about 3500 with tranny. I am not a mechanic and do not have the no how I would would need some one to do it. What do you think it would cost to have it put in. I also whated to hear if you think it would be worth it and also can it be done for a reasonable price
thanks

you'd need a kmember that they dont make for your car so you can have that engine.
work out the issue of the tranny location and the transimision you need. find a driveshaft that fits that tranny and your rear end
re-do yur exhaust
figure out what kinda hoses you need for the raditior now.
computer work
sad thing is this isnt near half way of what has to be done and you'd be looking at a shit ton of money to fork over

Its not that simple.

Kmember, motor mounts, entire fuel system has to be re done, computer has to be worked on, wiring, gauges have to be done, tranny has to be mounted up, you need a rear end, car has to be tuned, and blah blah blah blah blah.... Plus i don't remember if the sylvia is FWD , but isn't it left hand drive?

If you find a shop crazy enought to undertake this project at 75$ an hour, 5,000$ only gives you 66hours. This is gonna be like a 2 week project -

yeah...I kinda agree with that, a silvia would be cooler than a silvia engine in a Mustang. I like you're idea for how different it is, but I'd just keep the silvia, those are nice cars.
but hey if you have a retarded amount of money that you don't know what else to do with....go for it.

The Fast and the Furious can poison some peoples minds like this individual......first off forget u ever seen tokyo drift because thats where u got the idea from so lets leave it at that...2nd in the movie they didnt even bother drifting with that motor they did it was a small block V8 which made it easier having straight muscle for the fastback....3rd do you even know what a Silvia motor is ? without checking up on google or some search engine...another thing...that Silvia in Tokyo drift had a Skyline motorswap....which was a 6cyl as opposed to a 4cyl....now a mustang isnt a small or lite weight car...my buddy has a s13 silvia and his car weighs nothing compared to a mustang and thats with full interior...he may not have the back seats but he does have a stereo setup in its place...why dont u get rid of ur mustang and get a 240sx or 180sx and do the swap...thats like a V6 getting a V8 for a 240...its common and easier to do then a V8 swap in a 6....Thats like me doing the S15 Silvia headlight conversion to my 2002 Mustang...it can be done on the 99-04 Mustangs but what for ?

really u think thats a silvia motor ? did you see Sr20 on it ? looked like a RB26DET...Syline R34 GTR motor...thats the swap for those S15 Silvias....nissan 240s and 180s usually get the silvia motor unless they stuff in a skyline motor which usually isnt the case here in the states
