i have a 93 bird with 3.8 that threw a rod.

its a beautiful sight.

anyways i'm gonna be getting a wrecked 96 mustang w 5 speed and 3.8.

would the motor swap be easy?

i thought the mustang had a distributerless ignition on it is this gonna be a huge problem.

i did a search and didnt find exactly what i was looking for.

any help is appreciated.

if i need itanyone supply wiring diagrams for both cars?

The are a few differences between the engines but nothing you can't get past. In place of the distributor on the 96 engine it uses a synchronizer assembly with a cam position sensor. You can remove this and put a distributor in place, so that solves that issue. The heads are different on the 96 and in turn the lower intake is different, but you can use your upper intake. Other than that, you can swap in all your sensors and everything else will bolt right up. Use your electronics and you won't have to worry about any wiring issues.
