find a cougar or T-bird with a axle code E for a nice 3.27 Track-Loc differential.

I'll sell you mine for $150, but you'd have to let me know so I can get it removed from my car. It has less than 110K on it and the trac-lok works (3.27 gears). I have another diff in my garage to get set up for my car. For a some extra $$$ I could probably talk my friend and brother into installing it for you. I'd do it myself, but I had shoulder surgery 2 weeks ago.

BTW, I'm in Lebanon, so I'm local to you.

Send me a pm if you're interseted.

fyi, no such thing as a 94 sport(unless your talking about supercoupe), only 91 & 92 and 96 & 97 were sports

Just get the pumkin from any S/C. Autos had 3:27, I think. Make sure you get the rebuild kit as well from Ford. Cheap and a must do. I have 3:55 in mine. 3:73 seemed a bit tall for long trips, but thats just me. Total cost for the install was $200 including parts and labour. Cheap upgrade. IMHO.
Then you can do this.
