Question small block v8 conversion?

I recently just got a 99 couger with the 2.5 v6, I've always wanted one and now thay I've got it I find that its a tad to slow for my tastes so I was wondering if its possible to drop a small block v8 into it? The engine bay is small but with minor adjustments would it beplausible?

Re: small block v8 conversion?

If they can cram a small block into a focus, I'm sure a way can be had for a Cougar. I remember a Pinto wagon with 429 shoved into it. Just takes a little creativity and maybe some cutting and welding.


Oh, and don't look up the words "fill pipe cougar" on Yahoo! without turning on safe search unless you want to feel really dirty.
