Question about 1983 Ford Mustang Hatchback

1983 v6 is no fun

I have 1 1983 convertible mustang with a v6 automatic. I know it is probably a lot of work but I was wondering if anyone has ever successfully implanted a 1999 mustang v6 with its manual transmission into an earlier fox body. I haven't seen it done and although I know simply buying a v8 convertible would be easier I think transplanting the v6 would be interesting.

Give me a welder and a set of gas bottles and i will fit anything into whatever you like.but to be honest i do think your biggest problem will be the wiring.want to really hot it up put a jag engine in.but its most likely worth more in its original condition.high compression engine and not subject to having to fit a cat.but you could still fit the manual gearbox though.OK for when your europeon cousins visit as most of us lot in europe especially spain and italy wouldnt know how to drive an auto,they are only for old and disabled they cost a lot of money extra to have when you buy a vehicle and thats only if you can get it in an auto,very few manufacturers build europeon cars in autos

as far as i know the fuel pump is located in the actual fuel tank. It'll probably be spring loaded so that it will keep itself in place as the tank flexes. They usually have some kind of a "bobber" on them that tells the PCM and/or a guage how much fuel you have.

hope this helps,
