Pretty sure that 96+ blocks have deeper thread holes. 1994 ws one of the bad years for head gasdket failures due to the shallow head bolts. Just make sure to be extra careful torquing the headd bolts and use new ones. Do not reuse the old head bolts under any circumstances.

1988 Mustang LX coupe will miss you greatly

2004 Mazda 6s 5 door Sport w/5spd/3.0/RX8wheels/Kon/Eibach/and then some
