i wanna pick up a notch and put a new motor and tranny in it.....my choices are:
1) 4v out of a lincoln aviator with a promotion t3650 tranny
OR:
2) a 460 that my buddy has that we can tweak and make bad ass (only thing is makiing it fuel injected might cost a lil bit of money)

NOW::::::

i wanna know what the process would be of putting the 4v in (wiring harness wise)......how much of a slut is it to wire this puppy in????

also gimme some opinions on this brosephs

Same as i said in yesterdays post about the same topic, theres a guy in here that recently posted pictures and everything of his swap. only difference is, he put a 2v in rather then a 4v, and he also took the entire interior and swapped it into his notch.

out of the two, i would do it with a carbed built 460. It will be cheaper in long run with much more power. with the 4v you will need computer, full wiring harness, headers will be $$. the dash may not be compatible with the 4v computer. I have built a fuel injected (mechanical) 514ci way cheaper than you can build a 4v for the same power level.
The 4v would be a cool project thou

yea thats what i was thinking of......in the long run it will prolly be cheaper and more cost effective to put the 460 in there after we mess around with it and change it to fuel injected.....thanks mang

It really all depends on what you are looking for out of the car, for a purely track tuned car I would definatly go with the 460 and keep it carbed. If you are trying to make a tamed daily driver and still make a good amount of power go with the 4v. Is the 460 built at all?

460 will be built if i choose that route.....its not going to be a dedicated track car but its not gonna be a daily driver either.......its just something i can f around with on the streets every now and then.....i would rather change it to fuel injected if i was going to do the 460

+1 on the 4v. Im getting rid of my 2v heads right now. And -1 on the 460, go fuel injected. It will be a little more expensive to build, but a lot cheaper when it comes to gas. Im doing a 5.4 swap in my notch, and the wiring harness really wasnt all that bad.

i just want to say..

OnebadNotch

Your car is sexyfuck

i made up that word for you.

i combined the two best things that considers looks.

I wanna restore my notch to top notch

For the OP Nothing is more badass then a fuel injected 460 in a notch..

When i turn my gt into a 4v im taking my 2v engine and putting it into my DD notch

cant go wrong with a 460 bbf. forget bout gas millage.

slap a t56 on that. 6 speed and a big block. you'll need a different bell housing to make it work.
