OK to complete my question. I have two Mustangs. One is a 1996 Cobra (that has been rolled and totalled the body). The other stang is a 1988 LX with a 4 cyl, 5 speed trans and has a fairly nice body to work with. Now, would the '96 engine, manual trans, and running gear (rear-end, front spindles, etc.) slip into the '88 Mustang? Would this swap require lots of fabrication? The '96 motor is a V-8, with the factory installed supercharger on it and 5-lug wheels. The '88 has 4-lug wheels. I wonder if the cooling system and the braking system in the '96 fit the '88 also? I would appreciate this forums advice and comments. Thanks.
