    Sell it and buy a GT or Cobra. I know it sounds rough now but it is way more $$ to do a swap like this with a running car.

    Agreed. You'll spend a lot more time, money, and energy than it is worth. And then you'll have issues and bugs to fix. Sell yours and get a GT. Or trade it in at a used car dealership or a Buy Here Pay Here spot.

    Yep. There I a reason why you don't hear about V6 to V8 swaps.
