How To 5.0 Swap a 3.8

Recommended Posts

I'm a big fan of that magazine, but that article was stupid.

It just shows they no nothing about the 3.8L V6 or how to squeeze power out of it the right way. They tossed time and money into a swap that didn't really scoop up that much power. There are cheaper and easier ways to do it. They also forgot to tell you the 5.0L is only a direct swap into the 94/95 V6. It's also not US street legal if you swap it into a 96+ car without a lot of paper work/ gov't hoop jumping etc...

They also implied that you need to swap in the V8 to "take advantage of speed parts like superchargers, nitrous and heads." Do they not know those parts are out there for the V6???
