yeah the all aluminum explorer engine, $5000 is more than enough, slapping the engine at a shop is less than 1g if you shop correctly, the engine will run you between $750-1250....depending on what you go with.DMcBrideBoston said:Or a PI Engine instead of the Mark one. 02-04GT
Details man, details. Let us all know where you can get this setup and have it professionally assembled for that price.GreenBird said:Finding a place to do an engine swap for $1000 shouldn't be too hard. With $4000, you could have a FORGED aluminum block, PnPed heads and all ARP hardware. Another $600 and you could add a sweet set of cams or nitrous.
How so? They're probably the same wiring-wise (except COP, which I would modify the MN12 wiring to work with COP), just different in the head/intake design.SloMo228 said:It'd probably be an easier wiring job to get a Mark VIII engine, though.
Here are the prices I paid, and these were not 1 time deals. Prices include shipping:Darrin said:Details man, details. Let us all know where you can get this setup and have it professionally assembled for that price.
i've heard that those motors are crap, im unsure, i would rather someone more knowledgable chip in about this.Cougar281 said:You could get an Aviator motor for like $1300, which I believe is the same as the 03/04 Mach1, except for the intake. Personally, I'd shoot for that...
Hey, those are great prices! But you are missing a LOT of stuf there. What about an oil pump, timing components, gaskets(head gaskets are pricey), intake, throttle body, fuel rails, injectors... I am still almost fully asleep and I know there is still a lot more missing. I think his question was "i am in need of a new engine. i am not mechanically inclined, so i would have to pay somebody to do it for me... what could i get for about $5000. anything? that is including installation."GreenBird said:Here are the prices I paid, and these were not 1 time deals. Prices include shipping:
02 Explorer bare block: $140 (probably get an iron block for under $100)
4340 Forged H beam rods including ARP 2000 bolts: $300
Diamond pistons; $620
New take out GT crank: $100
Fed. Mog. Tri metal rod bearings: $75
Fed. Mog. Tri metal main beaings: $70
ARP Main studs: $190
ARP head studs: $190
ModMax Plasma-Moly rings: $90
Torque-plate honing: $90
cleaning, balencing and assembling: $245
Grand total for short block: $2200
a set of PnPed heads shouldn't be hard to find for $1800.
Maybe I'll build and sell these, I know my machinist would like to use the torque plate he bought more than once! LOL!
use all the stock stuff. I did forget HGs. I mentioned he'd need more $$$ for the cams. If he needs a new engine, you can assume either the heads and/ or the shortblock are toast. replacing just the longblock is a good solution as he can do other small mods later.Darrin said:Hey, those are great prices!

Oh, and silly me... I forgot cams.
Ok, this one is going to get rediculous so hold on to your hats folks...GreenBird said:use all the stock stuff. I did forget HGs. I mentioned he'd need more $$$ for the cams.

I didn't include a cobra/frpp pump and billet gears because there are doubts you even need the cobra pump, and billet gears for the GT pump aren't availibile....yet.
