would like to know if I can swap my 4.6 V8 from my 97 f150 into my 98 f150 which has a seized 4.2 V6? If not, I,m looking for a 4.2 for the 98!
Not an easy swap. It CAN be done, but you'll need engine, mounts, trans, trans crossmember, PCM, wiring harnesses, cluster,etc,etc,etc,etc.
Basically, you need a donor truck to take EVERYTHING from.
im in the process of swap'n the v6 over to the 5.4, ive had my v6 since 99, done every thing i could to it and it still not what im looking for, yeah you get raged hard with a v6 truck but it will smoke a gt in a heart beat if you do it right, alot of money and time also needs to be invested in it. its my time to swap, but in my case i have a whole truck to just swap, mines a 99 that i will keep, but i i hate the PAT's system so im dropping years and swapping with a 98 5.4, alot less head ach, so in which im going to use all the parts that i can, cluster, harness, ecu and all that i can. i plan on it taking about two weeks to finnish due to a nagging job and a head ach of a girlfriend but its what ever.
