    2005 Ford mustang 4.0 v6 ls swap

    Hey guys. New to the forum, but i have a 2005 v6 mustang that im wanting to completely strip down to just the body and drop an ls in it. Just wondering if anyone has any insight or recommendations or links to websites to give me some help on where to begin. Opinions and preferences are welcome. Just trying to make some people mad and build me a bad a$$ car! Thanks.

    Not to deter you or anything but have you looked into putting a Coyote (the new 5.0) in it? I bet you that its pretty much a straight drop in compared to an LS series.

    Navy Blue Metallic
    98 T/A w/a little mods...

    It might be a cost factor. LS motor maybe $3-5k for all (tuning, mounts, etc), Coyote motor - $6k for motor alone....
