I've gone through hell trying to find a good engine for my T-bird (91 3.8 auto). SOmeone posted in other threads that a newer engines would work.


Can someone explain what I need to use to get a 96+ block in a 91 T-bird. Basically I had really bad heads (started to melt) and felt the block was bad so wanted to get a new engine block and heads.

All I need is a block, internals, and heads (no conversions please). I have everything else that I could switch over from my motor ie alternator, PS pump,, brackets, manifolds, intakes, TB, etc. What years and from what cars would work for this?


THANKS

Joe, I think the cincy t-bird is looking for a more detailed answer. As far as I know, a 96 block will bolt in, but I believe the 96 has DIS ignition whereas the 91 has a distributor. I'm not sure if the 96 can be retrofitted for a distributor or how much cincy has to change. I'm sure the 91 computer would have to be changed out for the DIS.
