Re: changing motors

It can be done but with a lot of modifications. You're better off getting a used engine from a wrecking yard. What's wrong with yours? They usually are bullet proof as long as they've been serviced regularly.

Wassup speeddemon

Just build the 4.6 with cams, forged internals, dish pistons, Manley h-beam rods, bolt-ons and a healthy shot of nitrous and you'll be in the 12s no problem. It's a more user-friendly approach but if you're looking for 9s or 10s in the 1/4 mile, you'll most likely never achieve that with a 16-valve. What are you looking to accomplish?
