95/96 3.8 compatability

Hey guys,
Another person on here and myself are trying to figure out if my 1995 XR7 3.8 will work in his 96? Any ideas?


Thanks for the info, and sorry for the dumb question,


Brandon

it would be better for him to get a 3.8 out of another 96 or 97. Ford fixed the headgasket problem in 96.

If he wants power, do a splitport 3.8 swap. Worth it for the HP increase

I guess he's just looking for something to get it driving again, were just looking to see if the engine will work in his car without a ton of hassle.


Thanks for the info so far,


Brandon

Block, heads, intake, exhaust and sensors changed from 95 to 96. As it was already mentioned, you'll be better off finding a 96/97 3.8 or get a 99+ split-port engine.
