    I talked to a performance shop, and they said it would cost $4000 for a complete FRPP GT40 motor swap, with all the needed parts and labor. You'd have to grab parts from the junkyard, or eBay, or perhaps buy everything new. Try grabbing a copy of Muscle Mustangs and Fast Fords, and put it together using the ads there.

    Why the hell does everyone want to turn their LX into a GT?

    Good point. They weigh a bunch more, thanks to the extra body parts.

    Probably not, but OK.


    I personally get tired of seeing Fox GT's, that's all people have around here if they have a 5.0. Almost no LX's.

    It'd have to really be something else to shock any of us here. Most of the guys answering here have taken their NA Stang and converted it to a **cough TURBO 2.3 cough** instead of the **cough every bodies got a 5.0 cough**.
    Cheaper and just as quick. But welcome aboard and good luck with whatever you decide.

    let me tell you right now from experiance


    DO A 4 CYL TURBO SWAP


    and in case you didnt hear me

    DO A 4 CYL TURBO SWAP

    im speaking from experiance of doing a 5.0 swap after i blew my 4cyl on nitrous....

    my grand total was OVER 5K and that was with a 600 dollar motor, a rebuilt T5 tranny, and a bunch of used parts.....and that was carb'd...if you think that your going to do an EFI 302 swap correctly for 4 grand then good luck


    i wish i had done the turbo swap instead now, i had one good day of driving with that car after the swap and that was the day i got it out of the shop the third time after the accesory bracket broke....before that the fuel pump took a crap, and various other things went wrong

    do a 4 cyl turbo swap, trust me

    What have you done to your car? Reading your signature, you've got a cold air intake, springs, and wheels.
