87 Mark VII engine in 93 LX

Ive been looking all over the place for my GF a project car, and i think we've finally found one that I think she has just about decided to purchase - a '93 LX 5.0 hatch, thats without trans, engine harness, and ECM. the car was an original 5 spd car as well, with elec windows, locks and such. All the A/C has been removed, and it has to have a fuel pump.

My plans are to run a stock t-5, with a stock EFI engine, and get it as close to stock as it can be.

Ive found an 87 Mark VII that has a supposedly good engine and straight body/frame. It also is an E code car, which means it has the 225 HP engine (IIRC). I can use the front rotors to do a 5 lug on her car, and use the rear stuff on my own car to do rear discs, and give her my axles/drums to finish it on hers.

What im considering doing is using the engine, ecm and engine harness from the Lincoln to get her car running. Can i use the ecm and harness? Are there any modifications that need to be made to make the harness work?

I am also considering finding a MAF, Harness and ECM to run it like it was stock... what else would i need to make it work?

I know these may sound like simple questions to some of you, but if someone can just point me in a direction, i would be greatly appreciative.


-One more thing i just thought about as well - I was given a stock radiator out of a 98 Cobra that is in perfect shape - will it fit a fox?

I believe the radiator will fit with some work... not completely sure

you cannot use the wiring harnesses from the mark VII, needs to be the same year v8 mustang harnesses, for the main and the oxygen harness, but not the injector harness.

5.0 explorer motors work great if your looking for something that is wrecked and low mileagle, just change the cam back out on it to put the powerband back in the right place.. you'll make alot more than 225 with it
