buy it, and will find a way to put it in. Highly recommend Jasper engine rebuilds.


no a windstar intake manifold will not work and as far as motors and the years will fit well most 1985 to 99 models 3.8 lit v-6 BLOCKS will fit but you need to transfer your stuff to that block, Now to get more horse power well a few none exspensive things are to change the cam or change the exhuast system to a larger diameter . but the best thing to do is to just by a used motor with the FACTORY Super charger , they did make them with a super charger , wireing harness will work the charger works on vacume and cable operation, or juat buy the charger and intake manifold and install it on your car

If it will accept a 5.0L that is a very very good engine for your T bird
