I have a 98 F150 w/ a 4.2 in it. I need to rebuild/replace it. I don't have the money do that at the moment. I just picked up a running 3.8 motor and tranny out of an 04 Mustang (for next to nothing). Will it fit in the truck without a lot of work and modification? Just as a temporary fix until I can afford to get the original fixed/replaced.
Be careful. I did this years ago on an e series with a v6 out if something else. Not sure exactly what it was out of but the angle of the heads were the intake bolts was different. Didn't realize it till it was in and putting intake on. Sorry I don't have a defiance answer.
