I think I read somewhere that it will you just have to use the Mustang brake system and modify some other things too.

Please someone correct me if I am wrong.

Yes it will fit fine and has been discussed many many times. Just to a search (as Palmguy so politely recommended :rofl: ) and you'll find a lot of great info. :thumbsup:

And of course nobody mentions that the Mustang engine is not DOHC, but SOHC

The 96-98 Mustangs have the same engine as 96-97 T-birds/Cougars which is only marginally better than what the 92-95 engines are.

The 99+ SOHC engines with PI heads is what you need to get a bit more power.

Of course, the quad turbo V12 is a good idea too :D

It depends on which "Mustang". :leftright

The Cobra is "officially" a "Mustang". :D

I thought I read somewhere that you need to use the Mustang\Cobra brake system or something similar in place of the master cylinder because the of the valve covers on the DOHC. Oh well. I guess I was incorrect.

When you find someone who has put the Mustang Hydroboost in a TBird, let me know, because I believe that's what's holding people some back from putting in some more aggressive camshafts, since you'll lose vacuum on the TBird system. I'd run hydroboost if the system wasn't so darn complicated, I looked at the entire system, and that's a lot of line running everywhere to fabricate.

Yes, indeed you were. No brake modification required, engine fits fine, but you do have to remove the master cylinder in order to remove the drivers side valve cover with the engine in the car. As far as the area around the enigne goes, it bolts right in with no clearance issues, although it is a tight fit.
