Question about 1985 Ford Mustang
I have an 85 mustang, NOT a gt or 5.0. It currently has a 3.8 in it but the motor is locked up and we wanted to change it out. What other size engines are compatible? I am having a hard time finding a motor to fit.
You can put the 302 in it also. But, if you are going to change the engine from the original you will need to match the electronics to the new engine. In other words you will need to get the correct module for the engine to match the firing order and fuel air parameters. It can be done, but you need to know precisely what you are doing. I hop this hasn't discouraged you. Then there is going to be the task of obtaining the correct linkages and cables to the throttle. Good luck. If you need more help jump back onto this site and ask. We are glad to help out.
