View Full Version : V8 Swap the real deal

07-26-2004, 01:18 PM
Provided that i had a mustang v8 EEC, and wiring harness, and motor mounts what else would i need to complete the swap ?

I noticed that the Thunderbird intake has a curved neck, i guess to clear the strut tower, will i have problems with a standard efi mustang intake ?

I believe the intake is shorter to clear the 'Bird hood.

This link should give you some readin' until XR7 Dave gets here in person:

That is GREAT information. I live at the junkyard and i know that there are PLENTY of Donor cars there. I would just buy the entire motor, and anything you guys tell me to buy that i'd need for the swap. I hope XR7 can help me when he's on line
