Hello, I just purchased a reasonably slick '95 Mustang with a grenaded 3.8 and a 5 speed. For $800 I couldn't go wrong. It will be a $3500 car in a few weeks if my lil' sister doesn't talk me out of it.
The used '95 motors with very high miles are also very expensive...supply and demand. However, the salvage is overloaded with low mile '99 up 3.8's for only $451.00
The stang already has coil packs so the lack of a distributer won't affect me. I'm just wondering what else needs changing when going to a split port? Is the splitport almost a direct bolt-in deal?
The engine itself is a bolt in. But you'll need to extend some wiring for a few things, injectors, sensors, etc.
The biggest thing to work on is the fuel rail, the early car has a return system, the newer cars don't. A fuel rail will need to custom made or you could go with a rail off an '01 E-150 or another vehicle that has a return system with the split port heads.
Do a search here, or go over to V6 Power. It's been done plenty of times.
