I want to do an engine swap What all parts will be needed to drop a boss 302 engine into my 2010 v6, my dad tells me I will need a new rear end, new transmission, new headers, it's a lot of money but in the end the potential out weighs the cost, but would you recommend switching from an automatic tranny to a manual? Just a thought I have been pondering for a little while, while I need to do any work to my drive line like upgrading to a gt driveline or will I be able to keep the stock one? I've heard about people making Shelby swaps in the v6 mustangs as doing a swap is in the long run cheaper than buying a 50000$ car, am really interested in this and any advice you can give would be appreciated


  • If looking to switch out your V6 to a V8 I know exactly where you are at, I did this same thing to my 2006 V6 and now it has a Turbocharged Boss 302 in it. It is a lot of work and takes quite a while but it CAN be less than buying a new GT, depending on how far you go with adding performance parts. Yes you will need a new suspension, Transmission, mounts, intake, headers, pretty much anything engine will need to be swapped out for V8 parts. please go with manual tranny instead of automatic. you will have to get a lot of new parts and switch out a lot to make it work but it is doable. The thing with mustangs is they have a lot of potential and can have so many mods to them that pretty much anything is possible. Yes you can take your V6 and swap everything out and make it a beasty V8, this is exactly what I did with mine and personally I think all the time(and Money) spent was well worth it. I hope I helped you in any way and wish you luck with your build if you decide on it. just take your time with research and don't rush when you start building.

Engine, transmission, rear end Will this fit my 1991 mustang gt, can I use a 5 or 6 speed manual transmission, and what transmission and rear end do you recommend? As u can tell I'm not much of a mechanic, but I want to build a really nice car. Oh yeah forgot is this thing supercharged?
