Default Re: 3.0 to a 5.0 engine swap

Via that little tab on the options bar above that says ''search'' and most likely Google. Everything such as electronics and such are basic plug and play with minor wire swaps and whatnot (which will be listed and explained on any good thread or documentary) and the fabrication is probably on a scale of 1-10 a 6 depending on what sort of tools and machinery you have available such as lifts, welders, engine hoists, etc...but that all has a loophole, and that loophole is that most if not all of the forums only explain how to use a Ford Exploder 5.0L motor and tranny, but not others from say a Mustang, Crown Vic, or F150.
