Just bought a SC need some questions answered...

Hey, Ive purchased a T-bird 95 Super Coupe, the motor has had issues (from what the previous owner has told me) and Im thinking about doing away with the V-6 and dropping a 5.0 in there, will the factory 5-speed work with a 5.0? (I have a V8 bellhousing)

Im also not sure if the k-member is the same as a 5.0, and the SC has electronic suspension, whitch I know nothing about, Im basicaly asking if I do decide to swap a V8 in there what can I retain from the original v6 drivetrain wiring etc..


thanks, 2wld4u

well, Ive learned alot about the super coupe since I posted this, I wouldnt mind keeping the six but it has issues, Id need new heads, likely need to rebuild the shortblock and thats just for starters, I have no idea what else might be wrong with the car.. I might be able to weld up the heads where the damage is, since thier alum, but Id have to mill the deck therafterwards and I have no idea if the deck thickness is thick enough to do so, I havent had the time to check..


thanks for the heads up.. I'll check em out..

Have to agree, compare the price for the V8 swap, you'll need an engine, harness, ECM, exhaust, mounts, and so on, you can buy a sweet 3.8 or 4.3 stroker, and it will bolt right in. Even keep s/c.

It would likely need rebuilt, but I will sell the shortblock cheap. The heads are sold, I ported them, freshened them up, and they were actualy sold before I had them finished..

Not having have heard the 3.8 run I would sell the short block as a rebuildable core not a ready to run shortblock..

well, Im not sure what any of its worth, doesnt matter though, if you make resonable offers I will sell the parts, and I will keep in mind the shipping, so I am willing to adjust the price so with shipping you'll get a deal.. I recently priced the supercharger for 200$ plus shipping, whitch I think is a fair deal, if thats to high let me know, Im just trying to recoupe some of the investment in the car..

Id like to just trade it for a older mustang like a 84 to 86 LX Notch or even a hatchback.. something thats in decent shape, I have a 4" cowl hood for that model year is the reason...

and YES I will take pics of the parts, Ive been busy lately and havent had the chance but I will post pics of this beast soon..
