Do a search...

Its not worth it, only one situation where it is: Donor vehicle, and your doing all the work.

A 00 CR 5.4? Yeah..... right. That'll never happen, even if you have the money.

Here is something that comes up alot in this hobby. "Its not worth it." If its not worth it, then why are we even wasting our time with this website? Why do we ask questions and try new things? I think the biggest waste of time is bitching about something not being worth it... or not being practical. Its not worth it to you.. that doesnt mean its the same for the next enthusiast who wants to do it.

If you want to do it, go for it. Its a good idea, if its something you really want to do.

Another thing to remember, SVT used V6 based mustangs for all the 95 Cobra R's. Very basic, and straight to the point. Its not hard at all, and peicing everything together isnt a big deal, just takes some time and lots of hunting.

I say do it, the v6 is the cheapest platform to do it on.

That way you can just strip the suspension and everything while your at it.

Coil overs, launch bar, 8.8 rear, new tranny, new motor, strip your int

i think it would be sick =]

cobra r is a 4v 5.4L not a 351w.

if youre gonna drop in a 351, stroke it to a 427 FTMFW than beat up on ls7 vettes!!! :cool:


i cant see the swap costing SOOOO much that its not worth it. explain please. and just for the cool factor, how many people can say they have a 427ci new edge pony????
