Not sure about what the Tbird used for electronics/fuel and what is swappable over to your Stang.


One thing some ppl are doing now is finding wrecked 96-98 cars for $500 which upgrades everything in the Fox to SN95 spec as far as brakes/wheels/driveline/alternator etc... and then doing a cheap PI swap with a set of cams to the modular motor and dropping it in as a Modfox. Solid 300+whp car for very cheap all things considered. Just another option to think about.

But wouldn't the sn95 have the 4.7 v8 not the 5.0?

If you swap EVERYTHING over from a 4.6L car including the K member, electronics, everything it is a direct drop in. This is just another option I'm seeing more and more ppl do as 96-98 cars are everywhere for "$500 you come get it" and PI motors are $200 out of a wrecking yard.


Like I said, not saying you should do this but if you are going to look for a 5.0 to swap to a Mustang 4 banger I would look for a 87-93 Mustang donor car, not a Tbird.

Another option is to go with the Coyote but that's a $20k build when all is said and done. You can even swap in a LS1. Pretty much anything with a Fox.

Like I said, basically for the 4.6L swap you find a cheap 96-98 (preferably 96/97) donor car and swap the whole shebang over. Pretty much all the harnesses, computer, fuel, 5 lug swap/spindles, rear, transmission, k member everything. You may want to get the trans rebuilt as the 96-98 transmissions have longevity issues from the factory. Once rebuilt, everything is updated with carbon fiber blocker rings/updated 5-R fork and it becomes very strong/smooth shifting/reliable.


Or just pick up a fresh T-5 for $750 shipped to your door and adapt it to the modular with a Quicktime housing. That'll futureproof you if you ever need to have a SFI approved bell for a track event and a basic rebuilt T-5 will hold 300rwhp no problem. Or go auto. 97.5-03 and especially 04 automatic transmissions are great and can hold a lot of power.

Also post more pics of your coupe. Notch Foxes are my favorites.
