Engine is useless in the Thunderbird/Cougar/Mark VIII because of the FWD pattern bellhousing holes.

You could use the C heads, but shame to cut up a good car just for the heads.

I would have no qualms about cutting up that car for a pair of c heads, but considering that is a 95, it's only going to have the b heads.

-90 XR7 5-speed black on black w/sunroof, MP2, coated rotors, double intercooler, 15%OD, ported heads, comp stage 1 cam, 85mm TB, 90MM LMAF, 80# injectors, and ported big valve heads

Good how? It's a former taxi, and a taxi based on a not so great car to begin with.

Like Mike said, C heads came in 99 after the previous year exterior refresh. Not even worth raiding one of these for upgrades

I didn't realize it was that old, sorry about that. Still, if it's a running/driving car, it's a "good" car. Not quite worth what they're asking, but it's a runner.

Ever been to a junkyard? Guaranteed at least 2/3rds of the cars you'll find at one are "good" cars. Doesn't mean anyone wants them. If a POS runner has to die to preserve or enhance the truly good cars like ours, so be it.
