My friend has a 80 tbird and the catalyst says the motor is a 4.2 and it has 8 plugs.how many cubic inches is it? everything i find when searching says the 4.2 is a v6.
If it was mine and a driver that's what I'd do. If for no other reason than 302 parts are cheaper and more available.95tbirdguy said:so he should prolly just drop a 302 in it and be done with it huh?
Don't know for sure if the 'Birds ever came with an I6 but the Fox Fairmonts and Zephyrs of the same era had the small 3.3L I6. Probably wouldn't be too big a reach to fit a 4.9L I6 under the hood too if my memory serves... haven't seen a T'Bird of that vintage in person since they were near new. The I6 would be cheaper to get initially but the go fast options aren't as varied for the 6 as the V8 of course.MN12BIRD said:Inline 6 in a Fox Bird??? ...
