Just wondering.. um... If there's a way to get a 3.4L V8 from a 96-99 SHO into my '95 GL. The car's mine, and I've got money to spare, so I'd very much like to put a 3.4 in there and slap a couple of the new V8 badges from Ford on the side...

Given enough time and money anything is possible. I think it will take A LOT of each. More probably than you are willing to give. Considering they reside in two completely different chasis' it will be very difficult. But hey, if you are willing to do it, more power to ya.

if you want a SHO motor in there, why not try putting the 3.2 from the gen 2 in there? of course, like all the other threads on topics like this will say, it will be cheaper and easier just to buy and SHO.

I think the 3.4L is slightly too big to fit in the G2 engine bay.
I'm not really sure about that. The V6 won't fit in a Gen 3, but the V8 might fit into a Gen 2. The V8 is lighter, and 15HP more powerful, but there are so many more bolt-on mods for the V6. I'm note sure if it would be worth it to try to find out.

If I recall correctly someone on this site is working on changing a auto into manual right now, you might want to try searching for that thread.

The 3.2L would be easy to put in a G2s since they came with the engine as an option (automatic SHOs). Swap the whole engine and tranny and subframe and wiring. They should bolt up perfectly. Troubleshooting is where you'd have problems.

Believe it or not somebody has put the 3.4 in the gen 4. Don't know who, but the guy who welded it took pics
. The pics were on the v8sho email list. I guess it could be a mean sleeper or not. I won a few races with my sho, but now the v8 sho seems to be an inferior car to race compared to some of these other cars today.

If we're talking about the same car, its not a Gen4 with a 3.4l. It's a Gen3 SHO that got into an accident and the insurance company let the guy put a gen4 front end on it instead...
