Instead of rebuilding my 95 5.0 engine I wonder if there is an easy swap for a later engine, either 6 or 8

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Does anyone have any info  about this?

Any 302 engine would be a easy swap. You thinking of swapping in a 4.6L? That would require extra work but doable....

Looking for engine that's smaller, low mileage, and the least work to swap it. Glad to hear your further thoughts. Thanks.


Buy a small car. Unless you want to swap computers and try to figure out all of the electronics.

right, and a smaller engine such as the 3.8L will not get any better fuel mileage and cost more to swap Computer wiring harness and exhaust. Sell what you have and get something more fuel efficent.

Thanks--I wont be selling what I have, which is a 95 GT convertible, yellow with a new black top, aftermarket wheels, etc ,etc.. With 122500 it runs great, too. Fuel efficiency is not an issue. Just thinking about the future. When the time comes looks like the best bet could be an engine overhaul.

It might be a long time, I have 232K miles on my 5.0L and the only work I did on it was replace the valve covers and 2 water pumps. Regular oil changes have helped.
