engine swap
im new to the forum and have a question about my 2002 with a 3.8 5 speed is it possible to swap to a 4.6 and if so can i still use the t5 transmission and my wireing harness or would i have to use the harness for the 4.6 any help would be appreciated

There is a lot more to the swap than dropping the motor in, some examples are a new k member and motor mounts. Also you will need a gt wiring harness and ecu. And no you cannot reuse your t5 because the bellhousing bolt pattern is not the same.

Bottom line, a lot of work will need to be done but it can be done. My advice, though, would be to sell your current mustang and buy a gt.

No problem. I didnt mean to come off as a dick buts its just much easier and cost effective to start off with something you want.

Swapping motors and transmission in the newer cars is not as easy as everyone makes it seem to be.
