Have a mint no winters 88 Turbo Coupe that I allowed to sit too long in
garage, now has big tranny leak, suspect seal has dried up from sitting
almost 3 years. I also have a Lincoln Continental with the DOHC 32 valve
engine that I like a lot. Would a Mark VIII DOHC engine and tranny fit
in the 88 TBird? Looking for a little more oomph and would prefer the
DOHC to a 302.
Doug while i've heard that it will fit, your looking at a pile of work to
put a mod motor into a Fox Platform.
New Mounts(custom K-Member), whole wiring harness installed off the DOHC, a
new tranny, the manuals and autos were never that stong ( they can not hold
the power of a mild moded 302), Brake Master Cylinder may be need to offset
to fit. Those are just off the top if my head.
Good luck if you do it, personally i'd just stick a 302 or a 460 in there
while much less difficulty.
