wait...so you're dad won't let you get a GT, but a 305hp v6 is ok....slap the **** out of him for me :yes

edit: is this an april fools joke that's just late...since daddy's buying your car and all i wouldn't think he'd get you a 2011...unless you're joining that one kids spoiled high school kids club in the 2011 section...

Were you thinking of swapping the new 3.7 into your car? or getting one of the 2011 cars?

OP, if you are worried about your engine being on its last leg, then just replace it with a 96-98 or a 99-04 v6 engine. a new 2011 3.7 WILL NOT be a simple drop in, and the trouble of getting everything you would need to install it completely and actually installing it, will not be worth it.

actually when i get my roller fox i might look into a nice 351w lol...my friend that gave me the catback told me his work has a few rollers sitting there and i should come give them a look...and enough parts to build a dozen 10 second cars (according to him)

do you understand how much work would be invovled in putting in a 2011 v6 or a v8? the list of parts needed is so long i cant even type it all. you wont be able to just buy the engine and bolt it in. for the price you would pay to get everything needed for the swap, you could just flat out buy a GT and prolly some bolt ons

putting a chebby motor in the mustang isnt unheard of, but another pain in the ass to do, especially since it wasnt designed to go in a mustang at all.
