    Ok so I have a 1998 v6 3.8L mustang with a blown engine, my dad and I are planning on swapping it out. I found a 3.8L engine out of a 2002 mustang in great shape for a good price. I was wondering what exactly I would have to change to make the 02 engine work in my 98.
    For the people who are wondering...
    Why not v8 swap?
    Don't have the time or money at the moment
    Why not get a 3.8L out of a 97 or 98?
    Most 99+ 3.8Ls are cheaper and in better shape than the 97&98 3.8Ls. Also they have the split port and offer about 40hp.
    I know it can be done, just want to know how difficult it will be.
    If anyone has done this and know what needs to change in the 98 to fit the 02 engine it would be appreciated if you could help me out.
