I have a 2010 Ford Escape XLT 3.0L V6 and was looking to Engine swap with a v8. Is that possible? If so, what kind of engine is compatible with my car? And what would be a rough cost estimate. Thank you

What is directly drop in? Nothing. What are some options for lots and lots of fabbing?
Hmm
  • 4.6 DOHC with transaxle from a Continental? the engine is 9 inches longer (transverse, so side to side in the engine compartment) not sure about the transaxle but on'y 39 hp more...
  • V8 from a Taurus SHO (I think same bolt pattern as your current transmission) but lower HP from the 3.4 V8 than the 3.0 duratec V6...
Want to keep it FWD? What radical weekend or drag only vehicle?
