Sure, you can put an LS1 in it also.....
Or a v10 out of a viper...

Will it be worth it cost wise, no.

still alot of money/time involved making the conversion just for the engine....not even gettin into upgrading brakes/rear axle/suspension to handle the extra power.

Buy the time your done converting the 4.6L 4v into the v6, you could be walking all on top of one.

Before you saved the $ to s/c the 4.6L 4v you could turbo this 6 that you dumped the money into that you saved from not swapping, and walk over this stock s/c 4v :)

However, the 4.6L 4v will have a slightly better exhaust note while its behind you.:p

Because people love to ask questions even if they know they can't/won't/will never make one move. :)

the cobra engine of that year isn't crazy powerful... it has 305 hp @ crank lol (same as new gt's).
the rear, suspension, etc. should handle that until he does some performance upgrades.

but the 98 cobra engine is a hand built monster of a block it would be my ford v8 engine of choice other than a 428
