I wanted to do that, but again with needing to have a good, reliable, and running car by March 8th, that would take a bit of time to swap out the rear end, drivetrain, electrical etc.
I've found a couple super clean, decent mileage 5.0's already with minimal mods, going for like $3000-$3500. Mods being exhaust, short shifter, and cai most of the time.
