getting my 92LX 3.8 non sc to run mid 15's is like getting our 5.0 cars to run in the 12's! its easily about the same effort.. maybe even more.
Insurance usually covers the car =P. It covered just my CD player and window that was broken in my van. Then again, I have full coverage insurance.. Idk

It's not a Camaro AND it doesn't blow its engine before it can finish the 1/8 mile.

I once drove up on a street race among four cylinders. It was really funny. there were three Honda's and one American car (drumroll)--a dodge neon with a HUGE viper logo in the back window. It was all cool with me, until one of the Honda's got beside my 5.0, and revved his engine. had they wanted to get my tag number, they wouldn't have had time. There are few things that even compare to the joy of pulling up beside a "pimped-out" Honda civic in an American V8. AAAHHHHAAAHAHAHAHAHAHHAH! in all fairness, I burnt a lot more gasoline...but I PUT THE RICERS IN THEIR PLACE!!!!

So. You know you have a 5.0 TBIRD when

You go to get it smogged.. The technician first puts on the paper "FORD TAURUS" and for the engine "3.8L V6". He probably though he was the "coolest" guy, working at his own shop by himself, and writing all this information down right in front of me without even looking at the car itself.

Then I see him pop the Hood, and he just stares for a second.. Looks all around the engine, probably to see if it was a drop in job, and then he goes back to the paper he first wrote, and had to scribble out and 3.8 to a 5.0 and the V6 to a V8. BUT he still fu**ed up. On the smog paper, it still say'd V6 3.8L. I hope that doesn't mess up with my DMV Registration. LOL

Or you’re at an Autocross meet and your first run blows the collector completely off your MAC headers and then you have to drive over 100 miles unable to hear the stereo.

After countless repairs to your MAC headers you finally smarten up and buy a set of JBA headers and are totally amazed that you installed them without your 2 buddies and the crowbars in less than 30 minutes.

When you trade a grand caravan for it straight up and the guy trading the Tbird away says the motor came out of a Mustang. When you get upset at how many parts are obsolete at local Ford dealer. When person before you did dumb "Honda" mods on it and you have to undo all of them to make it better.

When you tell your brother-in-law from whom you got the car that you're gonna "supe it up" and he says "What are you gonna do that for? It's already too powerful!"

- That actually happened to me yesterday. All I can say is when he gets in that car after I'm done with it, he's gonna crap.

When people think your 5.0 engine makes it a fast high performance car.

"That has a five liter engine, right? Yeah, I didn't want one of those fast Thunderbirds. I bought a Mark VIII. It's not as fast as yours but I like luxury." Many many years ago. If the old guy only knew.

Similar thing days later with another old guy who said it was nice "sports car" and then left in a Caddy with a Northstar engine.

Must have been senior citizen month at the strip club.

92 Sport -5.0L
Just some bolt-ons and a pile of parts on the back burner. There's more on the "To-Do" list than on the "Done" list.
97 Sport -4.6L
Rolling on 17s, otherwise stock. "To-Do" list: PI cams & intake, ported Crown Vic plenum, 75mm TB.

When you call up the local Ford dealership to tell the parts guy you have a "'92 Ford" and he interrupts "The five liter Thunderbird again?"

Happens more with my son these days, "The Supercoupe, right?"

Everything rattles, and when it doesn't then you know something must've fallen off... (my poor 'Bird, still one stage above "clunker")

Or

Your nephew says while driving your T'Bird "We've had some pieces of crap in this family but I think you've got us all beat" but then hits the gas and says "Dang thing will go, won't it?"

Or

Your best friend gives you a dead Explorer with a 5.0 and you can't decide whether to rebuild it or strip it for 'Bird modifications!

You know you have a 5.0 thunderbird 'sport' when every parts store you go to says "You mean the super coupe? They didn't make a 5.0 sport." Then you take them outside show them the sport badge and pop the hood...

or you bet the kid down the road with k20a2 swapped civic $50 that you'll beat him and end up spending half of the money you won on gas...

silver 1992 thunderbird sport, transgo shift kit, gt40p heads explorer upper/lower intake, sbf ford 1.6 aluminum roller rockers, MAC longtubes.

black 1983 Capri gs v6 with 5.0 swap, 373s, longtube hooker headers, stock intake, stock e7 heads with stock t-5 5speed.

Green 93 Mark 8 dd, DOHC 4.6, 2.5" true dual exhaust.

You go to the junkyard looking for spare parts, and there are no 5.0 MN12's there..Just a bunch of 3.8L & 4.6L MN12's..

When everyone who owns a 5.0 Thunderbird..Thinks it's a Sport..

When you're forced to buy aftermarket Mustang 5.0 parts because there is no 5.0 MN12 Thunderbird aftermarket..
