Im about to buy an 88 Cougar, and fix it up to take it to the drag strip and represent the company I own, and raise money for breast cancer, by painting my car black and putting the pink ribbon on the hood and doors, and I was wondering, will the 5.0 mustang motor fit in the cougar?

Yep. Is your Cougar a V6 or V8 now?

I believe its a v8

OK if it is already a V8 then it should be a straight forward install.

Okay, im trying to find a decent motor, without spending alotta money

Yeah if you could find an HO that would be a good one to start with.

what do they normally run for

116,055

If you are willing to rebuild a good block you can find them for about 200 bucks, right on up to around 1500.

I believe the cougar has the 5.0 EFI
