From what I heard in passing threads back in the day, there's alot more that you have to swap over to get it to work correctly

Don't forget though, the supercoupe's 3.8 had forged internals, the stock mustang's does not

only the sc rods were forged and even then they still bent due to the high tq in higher hp cars. if u have a 94-98 v6 it will work no probs just need to swap alot of parts if u have the engine its even better

It would be far cheaper to swap a supercoupe engine than to try to make it work on a mustang 3.8.

Sell it to someone else and buy a vortech

Good call . I didn't know that. I thought the crank was forged

89's had cast cranks. Shortly after Ford went with a forged crank. As far as the rods being forged, uhhh, no. The pistons were Hypers.
Guys on the SCCOA are running over 400 at the wheels on stock bottom ends and so far they have been holding up. Granted most of our cars are getting older, so it doesn't quite help things when you modify the motor and expect it to perform.
I would suggest if you want to know more about the 3.8 that the SC offers, it may pay to visit the SC sccoa. Good luck

BTW, I have 2.3 Whipple made for the SC. To my knowledge it the last running 2.3 around that was made custom for the car. Originally there was only 3.

If anyone is interested, drop me a line.
