This really should be in the Wanted section..

Anyways..To answer your question..

The EGR tube used on the 96-97 Thunderbird/Cougar 3.8L is exclusive to these 2 years..

The previous years used a different tube..There is no other car I'm aware of that uses this unique tube..

I'm afraid this tube has been obsolete for a longggg time, and there's no NOS available..

Your only hope is to find a nice used one..Unfortunately this is the kind of item that frequently breaks, or cracks with time..

So your chances of finding a nice used one are kind of slim..

If you have both ends of your old one..Find someone who can weld, and perhaps they can make you one..

I just cut one of these off to delete the EGR on my build.

I didn't want to fight the rusty nut off. I have the tube, cut flush with the nut at the manifold if somehow that will help you. If I remember correctly, the 94-95 tube has one vac (?) line coming off of it, where the later ones have 2. I put 97 manifolds in my 94 and just plugged the 2nd one off.

1994 Thunderbird - 2000 4.2L M5R2 now has 55k

1995 Thunderbird - 2002 Alum 4.6L SVO - Awaiting transplant... (Parts donor)

1996 Cougar - 2004 3.9L 4R70W

I'm sure someone else has ran into this issue..Either try doing a search of the forum, or wait for someone else to chime in with a solution..
