I can't believe it's CARB legal for CA; I didn't think you could do that. :)
As long as you go through the testing to get that CARB EO number proving it won't harm emissions, you are good.
Looking at the list of what's CARB certified that can work with the tbird, it seems like the tbird was "close enough" to the crown vic or mustang to gain certification.
I'd be surprised if you could justify taking your product through this process JUST for the tbird market.

We hear such horror stories about the "Evil California", lol.

We have no rules here, basically. :)

I ran across a name that made me think of you, yesterday; A Gunn was involved in the Manhattan Project at Los Alamos in WWII, and triggered a thought. :)

@OP: the car looks like a winner! I'd pick it up if everything else is in proper order.

You have to jump through hoops to get big power to be legal here in CA.

But, as for "moving the goal posts", yea, that part sucked on my daily, lol.

And @S4gunn, you sure do research your stuff quite methodically. I love it!

On another note unless I had to create a new username in not sure why I’m a newbie. I’ve been researching this page since I was 15. I remember the sketch of the yellow Thunderbird that’s always looked so awesome!

Post up in the admin thread, with your original info; there's a process to recover your account.

Unless its 94badbird, lol. (That's a joke)

The surname Gunn often denotes someone of scottish descent from the Clan Gunn. Those folks were originally vikings who liked Scotland and stayed.

I have a necktie with their tartan but as an asian guy, yeah, they have nothing to do with me (I also could give two shits about cultural appropriation).

The few times I've heard of someone else with the first name of Gunn, besides me, the person was nordic (short for Gunter) or Indian (short for Guna or something like that). Oh, the sidekick to the John Wayne like truck driver in the ode-to-ramen japanese movie Tampopo (1985) was named Gun as well.

As far as the car is concerned -- if it wasn't such a pain in the ass to get access to the sparkplugs in this car with a 4.6L modular, I would suggest a compression test on all 8 cylinders to check the health of the engine.

That might give you a good indicator of how abused the engine has been given the injector sizing. If you do a test drive, be very observant to any pinging. If you heard it once, the owner probably heard it a lot more.

If you can get to one plug, maybe at least look at the spark plugs to see if the car has been running super lean.

Anyone ever heard of a 4.00 rear end? I’m looking at buying a 96 t bird Allen supercharged and guy is telling me the rear end tag says 4.00 and he and a bunch of gear heads are baffled. It’s a 8.8 rear end, car is really clean and can get it for $3500.

Car has a 97 Crown Vic motor and trans in it. It’s a 4.6 v8. I can’t figure out how to upload a video but from what he’s sent me car runs really good. Thoughts?
Did you end up buying this car?

This was my neighbors car. I ended up picking the car up as a cheap daily driver and am in the process of sorting it out. There was nothing major wrong with the car, the engine was out of a Crown Victoria and the transmission was sourced from a local shop after the Jasper failed. After he replaced the engine and transmission he didn't drive the car much because he was worried about the safety of the supercharger set up (fuel and timing). Now that I have it, it has a Lightning MAF, Lightning IAT in the upper intake post intercooler, FMU has removed and regulator installed back on the fuel rail, 42lb injectors on the way and a tune (base file). As for the rear end gear, I have not jacked the car up and validated what gear is installed but the door tag is a 5, and from the little research I have done indicates that it has a 3.27 installed. The odometer quit working and I need to pull the cluster and see what is going on with it.
