Quick question for you sixers

Will the sc from a supercoupe work on a 02 3.8? Just wondering what would be involved with doing this if it is at all possible.

Thanks,

Chris

Well the 99+ 3.8, ALL 4.2's, and the (I think) 96+ windstars are what they call "Split-Port" induction. Which means they have 2 intake ports instead of one. The older 3.8's are single-port, meaning, obviously, that there is only 1 intake port/cylinder. All supercoupe's were single-port. So the SC intake would not fit the split-port heads. If you were to make a custom intake manifold then this would be possible, but certainly not cost effective. You could also convert the car BACK to the single-port heads so you could use the SC intake, but this would be a step backwards in technology. The split-port engines have 190hp so you'd almost be better off just putting a 4.2L shortblock underneath it and gaining the same amount of power.

This gets asked quite often at 3.8mustang.com . The general consensus always seemed to be not worth it because of all the fabrications you have to make.

you need to go back to single port, however on that note, some ported single port heads are the best flowing head s on the market, but by the time you spend on all that it will be better jsut to buy a procharger, supposedly SSM is coming out with a kit to put a m112 off a cobra on it, but that was supposed to be out "this summer" like 3 years ago so who knows

Please don't talk about things of which you know nothing about.

It was "speedkillz" that tried to come out with a M112 kit but in the end failed to deliver a product. SSM is comming out with a kit as not only have I seen the production intake, I am running their prototype one.
