Never really intended on doing a 3l swap but the csvt is gonna need a new clutch soon. So I decided while the trannys out ill pull the motor and paint the inner fenders since they are all that is not satin black. Then I got to thinking while the engine is out why not just throw in a 3l. More so just to say i did than for the extra 20 or so HP.
Bugzuki plates(already ordered)
Mustang 65mm throttle body(already ordered)
Svt cams and timing components.
Gut precats with mileliminators(already have)
Optimize ypipe (already have one done but may do the one on my csvt now to do a better job)
Bit to do the porting is ordered also. This One
Stock svt replacement clutch.
Resurface flywheel if needed
Sourced a 04 sable from local lkq 68k miles for $460. Seems high so i may have them check prices on 01-02. I have $400 saved up. Wife wont let me take money from our accounts so been saving money from side work for a few weeks. So gonna order the engine next week some time.
Looking to get the engine as soon as possible then take my time putting it together and cleaning it up and painting it. Not doing the swap till december some time after i get laid off for the season since i need the tour for the good gas mileage.
Any input appreciated. Especially if you think i should be able to or know of somewhere to get a motor cheaper. Also will have a low mileage (under 40k) 2.5l shortblock and heads(minus cams) for sale after this swap. If you might be looking in the future let me know. Also can assist or do the swap for you if your local.
