...Fox body kit, but I don't remember what year the change was made on the T-bird. Bumpage anyway.

is correct, the fox went out in 89. because i couldnt get a kit for m 385 89 t-bird project.
Full chassis car now, but wasnt at the time. Had to make everything.
Bird were changed in 87 and again in 89. I personally wanted a 88 turbo coupe, but funds were short at the time.
Your 96 should look great, I am putting the super coupe effects on my 89.

Fox birds ended in '88, 89-up were MN12 which is different. You still may be able to use the Fox headers, oil-pan, but don't know of anyone who's done it to a stock type susp on the MN12.

Not much help... Sorry.

Car will get a full back half. Just need to drop in the motor. Not sure how the K-frame is set up
on the new platform.

Good luck fitting the BB under the low hood line though. Keep us informed on how it goes..

I think a lot of cutting on the k-frame will be in order. Seesm to me the 5.0's they put in the early models of the mn-12 had a funny oil pan.

Do some searching at www.tccoa.com. You're likely to find the answers you're looking for, there. Problems I would anticipate would pretty much be on the exhaust side of things. Headers, being the most problematic.

Well if you find out which headers will work please pass that along as I am starting a 93 mark 8 project and thinking a 29 or 60 on alky might do the trick.
