    ok so i was pricing forced induction and came up with what seems like a great idea at the surface but have this bad feeling it is a bad one anyways here it goes...

    So I priced used 4.6L engines and Transmissions it seems like going this route would be cheaper. im sure other things would have to be replaced as well such as radiator, drive shaft, possibly the ECU.... unsure about all those as im nothing close to a machanic.... so what do you all think?

    ECM, wireharness, exhaust. But these 4.6s you priced are they 3valves or old 2valve?

    You would be better off buying a used or new GT.

    actually its much much cheaper just to get a GT, than to do a V6-V8 swap. between the engine, harnesses, ECM, and all the little things no one thinks about, like hoses and crap, its gonna wind up costing a fortune

    Or wait till the 5.0 V8 comes out or the 315 HP V6. Not everyone likes the new redesign :p
