  1. Would a 5.4-liter, 3-valve TritonTM V-8 be a good swap to place in a 97 GT Mustang?

    The new 5.4 liter, 3 valve engine has 300hp and over 325 torque.
     
  2.  
  3. If im correct billfisher has done this swap and it sounds amazing.
     
  4. just look my name in tech.

    advice:

    get an 4.6 75mm TB
    105mm MAF
    retard cams 1 upper tooth. save time experimenting.
    get best 4.6 90 degree elbow you can.

    it has 365 lb-ft.
    getting 300+ hp takes mods. it doesn't make that stock even though ford publishes it. all the stuff i have added has just gotten it over 300.
     
  5. I agree with bill the 5.4 is under rated I work at the ford dealership and the sales guys say they are even under rated.But with some mods i bet they can be good motor..
     
  6. So, it maybe better to get a late model 4.6 engine in the new Mustang GT?
     
  7. he said get those parts from a 4.6 to go with a 5.4 3V...HE HAS DONE THE SWAP IN HIS 96GT...do a search in tech or just click on his username and find his threads he made about it. Lots of them with details and pics.
