    If you want to reuse your V6 power steering compressor you have to grind a notch in the V8 assecories bracket.
    (I got this parts list from a webpage over the internet before i started to do the swap. I didnt have to make a notch in anyhting yet)


    after all the love and work i put into my car i have to sell it. i can afford to bring it to arizona. atleast ill have my memories. i hope this list helps you. it helped me. im really depressed right now. gonna take some vikadins. good luck

    *All of this came from a post by MustangSoonGT who did the swap a couple of months ago. If somethings off, then remember I'm just the messenger. :D

    helolo its me mustang soon gt. DONT DO IT. if you have a 94/5 v6 swap a 5.0 if you have a 96/8 v6 then go for the cobra motor. these swaps are pretty much plug and play. to take a 96 up v8 and put it in a 94/5 you need to do some custom welding for the mounts. any questions email me at [email protected]
