LS engine swap

I have found a 2001 Lincoln LS with no motor. It had a V8, how much changing is involved to install a V6 ? Is it feasable?

    Sounds like a lot of trouble. Why not another V8?

    You'd have to change the PCM (computer) or at least get it reflashed. The front suspension is different (may just be the springs and shocks) due to the difference in engine weight. The rear end gears are also different. That V8 is a sweet engine - it's a Ford version of Jaguar's AJV8. Stick with the V8.
  • Thanks for the information, that is what I needed to know.
