1991-1993 Thunderbird 5.0 questions.
I might be picking up a free 1991-1993 Thunderbird with the 5.0 and aod transmission in the next day or so. I know the Thunderbird had a more restrictive intake and exhaust than the ones used on the Mustangs, but is the rest of the engine the same (same cam, same throttle body, computer?). I am mainly wondering if it uses the mass air sensor like the mustang, or the harder to modify system used in the trucks. Suposedly the engine runs good, but a solenoid or piston in the transmission went out, so the transmission won't enguage, that's why I'm getting it for free. I'm not sure yet if I will keep the car to use as a daily driver or not, depends on what kind of condition the rest of it is in when I finally get to see it. If the rest of the car is trashed, I might just pull the engine and transmission out, and swap over my performer rpm intake and electronic distributor, along with a bigger camshaft, then drop it into my 1965 Mustang coupe. Any info is greatly appreciated. I've searched Thunderbird forums and couldn't find much as far as performance/interchangability information, so figured I'd try here.
