swap 92 tbird 5.0?

Sorry I've been hoping to swap my 88 lx convertible na 2.3 auto to 2.3 turbo 5 spd for some time but they are extremely hard to find donor car. I'm slowing giving up and today see 92 thunderbird with 5.0 engine for 500 bux. Can I swap this in? I'm trying to search on mu stupid blackberry and can't find answer to question? Thnx

It was easier in the past to find a 2.3 turbo. If decide to do a 2.3 swap start another thread. I am moving this where there are people that

I think that is one of the years that the tbird had a 5.0 HO in her.

Also there is plenty to swap over if you plan on doing a 2.3 to a 5.0 swap.
Almost best to have a donor car.
