Other than a replacement stock motor, you will need new motor mounts. Like if you put a 5.4 or a 5.8 Liter motor. I would think that ur best bet if you want to replace the engine on a 94 mustang to get a built up engine or get a stock motor and get a stroker kit to increase the displacement and power output. But other than the stock engine "ease" can vary, like i said with the motor mounts and electroincs.

Your 94 mustang engine could be replaced by almost anything. From a 60's era ig block to a 2.3 L turbo motor from an SVO mustang. I would start with the engine size that the car had before and go from there.... if you ave more info or more specific questions, email me at

I have a 94 V6 Mustang, and one thing I know is that if my engine ever blows for needs extensive work done to it then I would switch it with an engine from a 99 V6 mustang (just for insurance purposes cuz I'm 21). Your stock 94 V6 only has 145 hp at the fly wheel, If you get a 99 V6 it has around 194 hp at the fly wheel. The reason for this is in the intake ports. 94's -98 have a single port injection and the 99 has split port injection giving you 50 extra horse. The engine is th same block and will use the the same tranny, but some electrical work will be needed to be done in order to convert over. To me the is the best solution because it keeps your insurance down and is almost a direct swap.

Stick With the V-6, there are many upgrades available for it unlike the past when V-6 parts were rare and expensive, for a good combo try this: 2000 3.8L Bottom End,Heads,Lower Intake and a 2000 Winstar Upper Intake and a BBK Throttlebody, Very driveable,good Gas Mileage and its about even with a stock 5.0L on Power.

The 1994-95 SN-95 Mustang is essentially the same mechanically as the 1979-93 Fox Body Mustang. It still uses the same front crossmember, steering assembly, subframe design, rear ends (7.5" and 8.8"), and the Windsor family of engines. This means that any Windsor bolt pattern transmission will also fit, such as the World Class T-5, T-56, and automatic AOD or AODE (computer controlled AOD) transmissions. The stock crossmember will accept the various engine mounts as direct bolt in replacement without modification. Be aware that changing to a more powerful engine will mean necessary upgrades to braking, the rear end, suitably strong transmission, exhaust, and possible hood clearance issues. As for insurance, if the car is VINed as a V-6, then your insurance will be based off of it being a V-6 regardless of what you put in it. This also means if your car is wrecked, they will not cover the replacement cost of whatever engine you put in, a nasty catch-22. I have a 1994 Mustang Coupe that I replaced the 3.8L with a 5.0L. I went carbureted and avoided a lot of headache, but it is a direct bolt in. Also check local emissions laws (if applicable, I.E. California).

You can make it fit and someone told me a 94 3.8L engine will bolt up to a transmission out of a fox body Mustang. If you drop the 94 3.8L engine in it, you will need to buy new motor mounts just in case the other ones are rusted. Also, maybe the computer out of the 94 Mustang also.

How long will the Lincoln V8 engines last?

This is a question that cannot be answered for there is no answer.There are too many variables, conditions, factors, and other items that will affect the condition of the engine.There is no set miles or time that says after 200,000 that the engine is done. As long as you perform regular maintenance, replace the timing chains, and other items then the car will keep going. You can always replace part and have the engine rebuilt, so in that sense the engine can keep going.

Who wins a mustang gt or skyline r34?

You can probably find the answer to that question on YouTube.. If you're looking to buy one or the other, Mustang GT is cheaper and much easier to find parts for. In my opinion, the Skyline is faster and the stock bottom end of the RB26 engine is capable of handling over 1000hp.. If you know an experienced mechanic, go on eBay and purchase an RB26 engine for $4K and have it installed in a Mustang body. It has been done before, so nobody can say it's impossible. ANYTHING is possible with a sound mind and some Craftsman tools =) If you're not a fan of imports or transplanted engines, keep in mind Nissan and Ford worked together to design the engines used in the Mustang GT's between '93 and '97.
