Whats the deal with the f150 swap? Does the engine have to be bored out or is it just swapping the crank, rods, and pistons. Maybe a oil pan too? Im sorry if this sounds stupid but i just wanted to know what it involved.

2001 mustang 3.8 to 2001 f150 4.2

From what I heard the block goes with it.

Ask Kirk though, he's the buzzin 6'er genius around here.

The crank is what makes it a 4.2.

The easiest way to do this is to find a running 4.2 and use the entire short block, and put your intakes on it.
