Lincoln LS

A friend of mine wrecked his Lincoln LS V8 and doesn't have full coverage so wants to sell me the engine for cheap, low kms.
would this be a good buy? I know people swap them in the mustangs and I was thinking I could keep it for a project.
Anyone have experience with this swap?

I suppose that it depends on how much "cheap" is...

I believe that there is a write up about this swap buried somewhere here in the annals of ME.

I wouldn't think it would be possible or worth while. The Lincoln LS had the Aston/Jag V8. It has nothing in common with mod motors or Ford engines in general. It certainly wouldn't be as simple or worth while as the Mark 8 swap.

Also, those engines aren't known for reliability. I've had two Lincoln LS v8's, both extremely low miles, both were junk (but amazing when they worked). Always had to replace the damn coil packs, almost every time I filled it up it seemed like I had to replace them.

Hmmm.
I assumed they were mod motors.
Haha.

It's no wonder people are always talking about LS swapping them.

I wanna see some pics of the twin-engine Neon Ish...

You figured wrong.

The teksid is from the Lincoln Mark 8. It's a 4.6L 32v modular engine. The LS V8 is a 3.9L 32v Aston Martin / Jaguar V8, which in 2003 came with VVT.

From wikipedia -

The 3.9L (3934 cc) AJ30/AJ35 variant is a unique displacement used only by Ford and Lincoln and is built in Ford's Lima, OH engine plant. Bore is 86 mm (3.4 in) and stroke is 85 mm (3.3 in). The AJ35 version introduced for the 2003 model year added variable valve timing of the intake camshafts and electronic throttle control. While the block, crankshaft, pistons, and connecting rods are all unique to this displacement, many other parts are shared with the AJ-V8 engines produced in the UK by Jaguar.

Vehicles using this engine:

2000-2002 Lincoln LS, 252 hp (188 kW) 267 lb·ft (362 N·m)
2002 Ford Thunderbird, 252 hp (188 kW) 267 lb·ft (362 N·m)
2003-2006 Lincoln LS, 280 hp (209 kW) 286 lb·ft (388 N·m)
2003-2005 Ford Thunderbird, 280 hp (209 kW) 286 lb·ft (388 N·m)
Ford Forty-Nine concept
The last AJ35 was produced in March 2006 after only 3 years. Total run of AJ30/35 was nearly 250,000 units.


The transmission however, I believe is closely related and may be the same as whats found in the 05 - 10 Mustang GT automatics.

This is a very similar looking setup as to what that car was. The main difference in this car is that the front transmission is a 5 spd and the rear is auto. In my friends brothers car, both were 2.4L swapped automatics.



I can't find any pictures of that car but the beginning of the video should give you a good idea as to what it looked like.
