lincoln Mark VII
has everything you need
for that matter it should be a fox car any 5.0 mounts should work. But there could be a few "fab" things

dunno

Jon Hubers turbo 4 cyl. has more money in it than two big block 460's combined.

Yes the 87-88 T-Birds are Foxbodys but the 88 was the last year the T-Bird was a Foxbody.

Later Mark.

Question

what motor mounts should i be lookin for to get a 5.0L into my 87 T/C? Perches are flat on tbird, and angled on fox. did 5.0L lincolns and tbirds have flat perches on k-member or were they angled like the mustang? 4 cyl mustangs had angled perches like 5.0L i think. any help guys?

thx
mark
