in transmission

85 thru 86 Thunderbird Turbo Coupe
Non-intercooled, 36 lb/hr brown top injectors, 10 or 14 PSI boost depending on;
automatic or manual transmission application, "4 square" shaped intake manifold,
small VAF meter (~285CFM), single exhaust

meter (~380CFM), dual or single exhaust depending on; automatic or manual

This model has the best possible EEC for swaps into other turbo cars, prior to 1987
models. Hpowever, numerous wiring changes must be made, and additional sensors
added, but horsepower and drivability are greatly improved. The recipient car should
be intercooled for maximum power gain.

8.8" rear, 3.97 first gear in transmission, dual exhaust.
-all automatic transmissions (A4LD) Rated at 150 HP, teeny-tiny camshaft-get rid of it
3.73 posi 8.8" rear, 2.47 (?) first gear in transmission, single exhaust.

Other than that having way too many comma's in it, it did give a lot of good info. Couple of questions though, what about the 83-84's, and why not use the good camshaft from the 85-86's (manual) in the later models.

Before breaking both motor mounts, my 86' ran pretty decent with the high mileage it had. It had a FMS intercooler kit, bigger T/B (unsure of size) header, and a slight rough idle, 5 spd. It would smoothen right up with a little pressure on the throttle. Ran like crazy.

Im looking into restoring a 83-84. Its believed to have a cracked head, what cars can I use the heads off of. I know I can't use the twin plugs that came out in the early 90's.
