IIRC All 8.8 gears will work. Didnt matter if it was IRS or not. Only the carrier was different.

He's just trying to make the sale....it won't be 100% right for IRS.

Fairly hot topic in this section; a Search would be easy and tell you everything you need to know about IRS TLs vs. non-IRS TLs.

You will have to see if the circlip grooves are machined, if not you need to have them machined in.

If people are looking for IRS Trac-Lock units, you can contact Mike at 717-314-4204 or email him at streetrodtk*[email protected]*yahoo.com . He rebuilt mine from a 1996 LX with 8 clutches instead of the factory 6. His product looked great, it looked brand new. You can also buy new factroy units from SCP.

Bill does have a good price on brand new OEM units and they are machined for IRS use. I am cheap so I buy good used mustang units on ebay from guys who are swapping to 31 spline, then machine them and use them. Used units usually need the pinion gear spacers (rob them from your open unit) a new cross pin and bolt and a new s-spring.

Look online or go to a dealership for the speedo gear. Some dealerships are more helpful than others when it comes to ordering/buying parts that don't come up as 'stock replacement parts' on their computer for your vehicle.

I'm no expert on these cars, but I've got some experience with others and that sounds like something isn't right. 8.8 seconds with gears? What does anybody else think?

For comparison, stock advertised 0-60 time on a 1996 TBird LX is 7.9 seconds...

When you are accelerating, what RPM does it feel like it's pulling the hardest? What RPM do you shift at? Is it pulling hard when it shifts or does it feel like it's pulling, but not quite as hard - just kind of revving?

Like I said, something must be wrong. I don't know what my 0-60 time is, but I know I've beat several ppl from a dead stop and my 1995 will break the tires loose from a dead stop (once it's warmed up in closed-loop). My car is supposed to be slower than yours - it's basically stock right now with new cats, a j-mod and 3.08 gears in the rear.

I agree, a video would be great. Did you ever do anything to your cams/timing chains? If your car doesn't seem to accelerate until 4000, one cause could be retarded cam timing, nickmckinney is the expert on that topic. You might want to think of doing a compression test, too - low compression usually shows itself by lack of low rpm power. Does it start easy and idle well?

Time to start troubleshooting in my opinion!

never done anything to cams or chains, and no it idles rough and it cranks for a little while before it starts it burns a deal of oil too. i run synthetic and i burn 2 to 2.5 qts extra between oil changes.

will have a vid tomorrow.

no time to trouble shoot i work 7 days a week 10-13hrs a day...lol if i don't "know" whats wrong i let it go.

That's a sign of low compression. If it starts hard, idles rough, doesn't build power until high RPMs, oh and the oil consumption, too! Synthetic is really thin and you probably should use regular 10-40 if it burns it that bad...

Maybe you should just run it and look for an entire PI engine to swap in, cause it's gonna need a rebuild and these engines are really expensive to rebuild!

You can buy that Motor Honey from the Dollar General cheap. That slows the oil consumption a lot. Just run what you have now until you find a good deal on a PI motor if you want to keep the car. Craigslist.org or car-part.com has good deals on used engines all the time.

If you don't decide to keep it, part it out. You've done some mods that you can sell the parts here!

I have found 3 tricks that slow the oil consumption.
#1 Transmission fluid. When the oil gets a quart low top it off with transmission fluid. The transmission fluid will soften the valve seals and break down the carbon deposits. I use it regularly in all my motors.
#2 Fresh oil, I am not a believer in oil changes every 3000 miles in most cases. My ranger went 230,000 changing the oil every 5000. Fresh oil doesn't burn as easily, keep it changed regularly.
#3 a 180 thermostat. Cooler motors burn less oil.
