Hey guys, I'm usually from the dsm world.. but new here.. I'm looking into buying a 99 couger V6, I think it has the basic option like pw, pd, ps, pb, stuff like that no leather, or sunroof.. This car is in like premo shape, and only has 46,000 and the guy wants only 4 grand for it.. Its an Automatic though :rolleyes:

What do I need to be aware of these car? is it easy to swap out a manuel tranny? and I was taking a look and reading up on those 3L motor swaps "the ones from the svt".. I read some where there a straight bolt up, but I'll do more research..

Do u guys think I should smash on this deal.. I need an daily driver, but even daily driver I like to spice up to my tasted a bit.. thanks guys

ATX to MTX talk to aircougar1
http://www.newcougar.org/forums/fs-automotive-parts-accessories/116180-atx-mtx-swap-kit-available.html

If you really want a MTX is usually alot cheaper to just buy one.
I have an ATX and they make good daily drivers, even when modded. So if your looking for a daily driver theres nothin wrong with an ATX if you want performance look towards the MTX.

3L swap info can be found in the stickies on the 3L page here

or Blackcoog sells and installs 3L swaps his site

Also you can always look in the for sale section for more cougars for sale

Agreed ... at that milage its a more tha fair deal... for a slush box. With an atx swap you end up needing a different sub frame, thats hte biggest pain of it.

well we'll have to see the body condiction, but I already have a car for speed, I was thinking even though its a auto, I could put just some clean rims and a clean body kit on it just to cruise around and hits up spots.. My talon is a covette eater.. so we'll see.. thanks
