Hey guys has anyone here done the 3.8 sc engine swap to a fox body 3.8l car. I have a 1988 cougar 3.8l and I wanto to swap to the 3.8 sc engine how hard would it be to do this swap and anything else I need thanks guys lmk.
I thought about this and I wanna go 3.8 sc so I will need to swap everything from the sc right. I found my junker car already and its close to my house but I dont know how much they want for it. Thnaks anything else I need to know and has anyone done this swap yet thanks lmk.
You'll have to make some custom intercooler plumbing, might have to stretch a couple of wiring harnesses, but luckily, the Fox cars are pretty accepting of swaps like these. Plenty of room under the hood, used the same mounts and transmission as the MN-12, definitely not impossible.
for the most part, you can just relocate many fenderwell and firewall mounted things for the harness to reach
the intercooler piping will definatly have to be custom, it my buddy comes by, maybe i can park side to side and look at what things would take to work
the engine mounts are the same, but im not sure about transmission, is the MN12 tranny and fox tranny the same length, if it is, it should mount right up no problem, and you should be able to use your stock driveshaft, if not, you could use your stock tranny, but it wont last too long
if you have the money and time, give it a shot, id love to see it done
Hey guys so a 93 and before have the same lenght tranny so I can use it. Also is it true what they say at SCCoA that with headers duals no catalic converters and thick pipe will give me like 75hp. thanks anyother things I need to know thanks lmk
So guys I was asking if some supercoupes had the aod cause If the 4R70W does not fit with the driveshaft I have to use my aod and If It would handle the power. Do you guys think my aod tranny from 1988 3.8 NA will handle the 3.8sc a guy on cool cats forum did it and he used the 3.8 aod tranny NA and it is holding up so far. But If I use the aod I also want to mod the engine in the future and if the aod will handle the punishment. thanks lmk
