3.0L Swap conversation
I am starting this thread to discuss what I will need if I do the 3.0L swap is the dealership can't fix my smoking engine. (By the way, this is the 2nd engine in my car, and no I have never taken it to the track to race. It's only a daily driver and red light to red light BMW/ Benz/ Prius, , etc... destroyer.... lol)
1. I did get the brand new transmission and the PTU was inspect and I was told in good shape.
2. I can get a salvaged 3.0L with anywhere between 5,000-30,000 miles. (my car has 27330 miles on it)
So besides a complete engine. What else would I need? I researched and the MKZ, Fusion, F-150, Edge Sport/ST and Explorer ST all use the same ECM. I know I will need the typical consumables for the swap and new mounts and a few minor things unless any of the wiring is damaged. What other potential problems/issues might there be?
