Question I want to put a 5.0 in my 1997 CV

Has anyone attempted this conversion? Anyone had any success?

I acquired a 1997 PI with a blown 4.6 and I have a complete drive train from a 1990 5.0 Mustang ready to go.

Any input or criticism would be appreciated.

Sounds like a good idea but it is out of my league technically..

I think this is a good idea. The parts for the 5.0 are much, much cheaper and the upgrade stuff is readily available. If I was near you I'd volunteer my garage just to help out.
