Yeah you may be right, but a woman I knew had a 79 Pace Car when they were new and I would have sworn it had the TC 4 cylinder in it.

I was partially right - 79 Pace Car

Pace Car Production Numbers
2.3L OHC Turbo Four 5,970
5.0L V-8 with Automatic 2,106
5.0L V-8 with Four-Speed 2,402
Total:10,487

Note:
Does not include the three specially prepared '79 Mustang Pace Cars used at the race.

Dearborn, MI Plant: 7,634
San Jose, CA Plant: 2,844

Re: Got a new fox!!!

Yeah the 79 had a turbo 4 cyl as an option but If I remember correctly the turbo didn't last very long....

I agree it's an 8, but don't use wire count to make that decision. I have a 4 banger and it has 8 wires as well.

Really? Never knew. I just assumed you had a wire per cylinder on a mustang.
