Stripping down the T-Bird
« on: May 22, 2011, 09:08:26 AM »
Here are some pictures of FF grabbing some trim.  Better get moving :freddie: time is limited!




The 5.4 swap has been called a bad idea, and considered an underpowered considerable waste of time, since 2007.

Nice to see that most donít think that anymore.

It is an auto.   :-[

I was planning to put it in the XR7 since it was recently rebuilt and has a kevlar band.

If you really want an Auto and you car is not a 94+ this is what you can do (FF please correct):

1.  Get an Auto Tranny.
2.  Get the Auto shifter, console, accessories and wiring to the shifter.
3.  Get an auto drive shaft.  Have it balanced and replace the u-joints.

You can help yourself to #'s 2 & 3.  If you want the tranny then I could sell the one in the XR7 after I swap the SC tranny into the XR7.  Honestly O prefer to keep it as a back-up but if you are in dire straits...

After next week I will be pushing to get rid of the SC.

FF snatched the front bumper cover today.  We replaced a battery connection on the XR7 thinking we fixed the issue but She did not turn over.  Picked up a new ignition switch for $11, will try to install it soon in the XR7.
