I'm swapping engines, you know why? Because 'daddy' won't pay the extra $3000 per year for insurance.
Holy crap dude, with an attitude like that i dont think many people would be willing to help you out at all. Honestly, it aint worth it. Plain and simple. By the time you got enough money saved up for the swap you will be years older and your insurance premium will be a hell of a lot lower to where you COULD afford the GT insurance. It doesent stay 3,000 forever, ****, i pay less than 800 a year for full coverage on my GT
Hell, Cobra kit? 6k? yeah does that include labor? In fact, i dont think i have EVER seen a 4V 4.6 engine as low as 6 grand, in fact, why the hell pay 10,000 extra for a ****in cobra if you could buy a gt and have the engine swap done for 6k and save 4k. 6k for a cobra engine installed? Yeah. Right. I would be very very very suprised that you could to a 2v V8 swap for under 8 grand. The 2 most expencive parts of a vehical are the frame and engine.
As far as a Cobra engine in a V6? That engine is gonna trash yer rear end. There is a lot more than simply plopping in the V8.
In fact. Why the hell are you even freaking out? Why the attitude? you diddnt even ask! you dont see redlinestang01 throwing a temper tantrum, and he is the one who asked the question!
No wonder your insurance is so damn expencive, if you behave behind the wheel the way you do here then you shouldnt even be driving.
Best advice is this, you are young, you have PLENTY of time to get yourself something way faster than a V6. Enjoy what you have, everything else comes in time. If you drop the money to do the engine swap, yer gonna regret it down the road, trust me.
