Putting serious thought.....
Alright, I've been putting very much a lot of serious thought into this one, and want to know if anyone has any experience with it, and what EXACTLY I am going to have to get to make it complete.
I've decided I want to get a different engine and drop it in the bird. I am having a hard time choosing between a 99+ mustang engine, or a 4.2L engine. (mainly I'm looking to have some fun with it, beef it up somewhat of course)
Which engines are going to give a better performance overall? The prices on the engines here are as follows. For the 99+ mustang engine, bout $700. For the 4.2L its about $1200. The $500.00 difference is quite a bit. I know for the 3.8 I could buy a couple of things for the price difference. Which has a better aftermarket availability?
I guess what I'm asking is which engine would be better overall, and the easiest to drop in, and bolt up to the tranny? Also, I'm pretty sure I'd need a chip to take advantage of a new engine, I just want to confirm that one.
