check if it'smisfire or not because when i bought mine 94 it is only running on 6 cylinder instead of 8. the ecu is faulty and didn' t send signal to the fuel injector.

This summer I may be swapping a DOHC into mine, so I'll have a 1994 SOHC for sale. By then it'll probably have about 85K miles or so on it. If you want to wait that long.

hmmm.... could a 96 motor work, just switch the fuel rails, and intake crap?? cause if i remember correctly my friend still has his 96 mustang gt 4.6, so you could take that and swap out the intake manifold, rails and such onto his motor and drop it in ur car, and then also it came out of a mustang with a stick so u would need to re use ur flexplate off of ur 4.6 ill ask soon and see if he still has it

Then you could swap a PI intake and cams into it... What do you think, an MI chapter engine-swap meet?

It'd be nice to have a heated shop. Best I can get is a work light that gets really hot...

I'm selling a forged one for 2750 + shipping, but I could just drive it up to you and you wouldn't need to pay shipping.

PI swap...drops right in...very easy. Cheaper than swapping in a rebuilt POS old school engine. If you have any questions, hit me up. There is a wealth of information about doing the swap though. So...2nd vote for PI swap right here!!
