I just bought an 05 4.0 Mustang engine and 5 speed auto tranny I am going to put into my Suzuki Sidekick. I'm sure that will piss off some of you. I want to know if I install the engine with no o2 sensors will I have engine problems? Too Rich maybe. And I wanted to know if I can replace the motor driven throttle body with one from a 04 GT model? I have the entire wiring harness and computer. Any other problems you can think of will help. I also was planning on having a custom driveshaft made so I could use my Zuki rear end which is a 4.62 ratio. Is this going to be too much of a problem. I have heard of running 3.73's or 4.10's but not 4.62. Thanks in advance!

Is this some kind of a joke? Or are you serious?

You can go without O2's if you shut them off with a programmer, you will have to custom build a TB setup to do what you are wanting to do, and the Suzuki rear end may not be strong enough for the 4.0's torque.

I was going to rebuild my Zuk engine but it is so underpowered I just couldn't justify the cost. I ended up getting the 2005 Mustang V6 and 5 speed auto tranny 900 miles for a great deal on ebay for $400! I couldn't pass it up!

... are you serious? That guy is always on here, helping people out, including me many of times. He doesn't post a lot because he has questions, or just because he is doing it for fun. He is actually helping people out. Good luck with your imaginary car.
