If it is running strong why swap out the drive train? There really are no practical options other than the stock equipment. If you have a 4 banger in it you could install a V6 from the same year car. Rebuild the engine and transmission when they need it, not as a preventative.

I mean I wanna roadkill it . It has allwheel . With locks . No has ever done a tribute . I will be the first . Just wondering if there's a Frankenstein swap out there

If you have a very fat wallet you could convert it to a true 4x4 although you might need to have tube frame built for it. You could build a hot V6 engine for it. No room for a V8.

Maybe it would be possible to install the body onto a modified Ranger chassis - Maybe.

Can I get performance parts for that stock motor and just build that block up to a nice blown v6 ? Like do things fit on my v6 3.0?

Your wasting your time and money. Tributes are for daily driving and not to be hot rodded. Keep it running for getting parts for your toy car your going to buy.

Marco, I speak from experience. I have a Tribute and would never put money into it, it's a Taurus that sits up high. Any money you put into it, you will never get back. It's almost worthless now as it sits. I put my money into my Foxbody Mustang to be fast.
