anyways i got a 98 v6. i was gonna buy the split port swap for it, but im curious if i drop a gt engine in it, if the split ports from a v6 will work on a v8... or will i need to pull the split port off a v8 because the v8 intakes are bigger or something..? thanks guys

not to rip on you but if you need to ask this question you arnt redy for a v8 swap.

no a split port swap will not work, because it is for a v6. and there have pi heads and intikes for the gt but you can avoind needing to get those if you just buy a yeat that alredy has them.

also unelss you can get all you need to do the swap for free or are gana put in a crazy built v8 in it isent worth doing the swap.

i will not buy a gt. ppl say it will cost more to convert a v6 to a v8 than to just buy a gt? i dont give a crap... insurance on gts are insane. my insurance on this fukin 6 cyl is 150/mo. thats 1800 a year. swap to gt would prolly put me around 2500/yr i have no doubts.

and buying a new crate engine, it doesn't come w/ heads or intakes, is why i ask.
so where would i get the PI heads and intakes, when i buy the engine, i'll prolly be buying an 01 gt engine from ford.

crate engins can come with heads just buy a long block.

and with the insurance you should achtual check that out befor you just assume.
also FYI if you put a v8 in to a sixer body you need to tell your insurance company so you rates will go up any way, and if you dont tell them you are committing fraud, and if you ever get in to an accident you’ll be ****ed.

swap a 5.0 in it. they will bolt right up to your transmission and you wont break the rear end or anything with stock 5.0 power and without sticky tires

actually insurance on the GT is about the same for the V6, GT, Mach1.....goes up as soon as the insurance sees COBRA. Its not really fraud, they prolly just wouldnt cover it if you did crash it.

there you are very wrong. i am 19 and insurance for me for liability on my v6 is 120 a month. quoted for a same year gt is 300 a month. thats more than double.

Sorry im 25, and my car is listed as a "sunny day vehicle" There is no primary driver, so insurance is much much cheaper. :cool:

most v6 owners are under 25 and get the 6 for insurance purposes as well as parental restrictions. regardless of how you insure your vehicle, the v8 will cost more than the v6. but for a daily driven vehicle (primary or now), the v6 is substantially cheaper than the v8

what you have now does not at all matter since it will be replaced. any year 5.0 can work. but look at the 87-93 motors they are fuel injected and will bolt right up to your tranny. you will need a motor, wiring harness, and computer. thats it

insurance is rape anyway, and you shouldn't have to have it. i will commit fraud i guess cuz there's no way in hell imma pay that much 2 run the kinda engine i want.
if it was up to me i wouldn't have insurance. too much money for how often i wreck... (never).

IMHO... that is the dumbest thing ive ever heard. just cuz u havent wrecked yet doesnt mean u wont. ur 17 and i know u drive a lil wild once in a while. we all do. ive had a few close calls myself... i wouldnt really wanna drive without insurance
