So I have been doing alot of research, and there is a lot of good information out there. I'm more or less trying to get my thoughts together and get this show on the road. 2001 mustang GT, 70k miles, needs new motor. 4v has always been a desirable swap. I only ever plan to street my car, daily drive, eventually garage it, with occasional trips to the track. I could A) buy a whole motor and drop in. B)mix and match heads and blocks from marketplace and cl and put together a motor. It would be a learning experience as well. Was considering doing a mark swap, 97 intake, call it a day. Then I started reading about forged cranks and 97 cams, and c heads, etc. Soooo now I'm considering Frankensteining this thing. How bad of an idea would it be to collect a cobra teksid block, 01 heads and covers, 96-98 cams, cooresponding intake and put it together. Can I do this on my own, or is a shop gonna be inevitable? Is there alot of mechanical work that goes into installing the 96 cams in the 01 heads? I have mechanic friends that can come to my garage. Another idea is just get a teksid cobra engine complete for now, and In the future swap the heads and intake. I got a cherry picker and stand.
