there are some jba shorties that i want. my question is will the headers for the 99-04 gt fit the 4.6 bird ? are the exhaust ports the same on pi and non pi heads
Unfortunately that's part of the price paid for not having to say "me too".i think its stupid how few parts there are for tbirds and how many there are for mustangs with basically the same motor. its like the companies didnt even try. things like headers and good options for intakes are not only very hard to find but if you do find them they are likely going to cost you 100 dollars more at least than the corrosponding mustang part
True true, and the 4 year 94-97 run of 4.6L Thunderbird's aren't exactly collector items. Ford should have slapped Rally Sport, Super Sport, or Limited Edition on the sides of these cars, then demand would be higher LOL The SC's are a little more desireable..... Regardless, I like mine and really didn't give it much thought until I got one.Unfortunately that's part of the price paid for not having to say "me too".
The companies go where the money is...very few actually have some sort of allegiance to anything other than Camaros, Mustangs, Chevelles, Challengers, Camaros, Mustangs, etc.
Interesting trivia I once heard about the Probe: it was purposely phallic designed and shaped to attract female car buyers..... I'm not sure where I read that; I think one of the Trivial Pursuit games - no lie!They're bread and butter was the trucks/SUV's, it cost a billion dollars to develop the MN12 and had a puny profit margin, it cost them comparably nothing to develop the SUV's (like putting a roof on the ranger and f150 was complicated) thus having a huge profit margin.
I don't think the MN12 ever was considered by Ford a threat to Mustang sales, especially in the time period when the probe was supposed to be the "new" mustang.
Well lets agree, Ford turned into major cheap asses in that time period :tongue:LOL the mazda stang thats right they were really close to that being that stang. However they used that rehashed sn95 to a huge profit as well as the FAD of SUVs blowin up at that point. Even the probe got tossed like the mn12.
