4.6 motors went into a TON of different FOMOCO cars......... there's no information in that listing to even say what car they were intended for. I'd pass just becasue of that....... that and shortie headers are junk. If you are going to do headers, go mid or full(if you can find/build them) or not at all cause it's not worth the time and effort otherwise.

These cars are in no way related to the mustang other than sharing engines and being RWD. Packaging requirements are different from platform to platform, headers/exhaust manifolds are packaging items.

Everything I've read says that Mustang headers do NOT fit T-birds without modification at least on the drivers side... the steering shaft gets in the way if I recall.

I don't think they won't, I know they won't. Traveler said it, the steering shaft is in the way. There's also differences in the locations for the downtubes.

Throttle bodies yes, intakes no. Not the pre MAF portion namely, the apron hole location is in a different spot than the Mustang

In both cases (shortys and CAI) stock is superior.

Read through the forums.

I love my V8, but I'd love it more if all 8 cylinders worked. (they do now)

My T-bird is like George Jetson's wife, you try to give her a little money, she takes the whole wallet.
