4.6L/278
4.6L/281
4.6L/283

I'v been running into these numbers when i search for engine parts but i'm not sure wich one belongs

Which one is the 97 thunderbird?

i remember running across a site saying it was the 281 if thats so are there any other model cars that have this engine like the mustang

it might be easier to find parts that way?

4.2

Hello

I have 81 4.2

It is a 255 V-8 from Thunderbird. I also have seen them in trucks. They were only made from 1980 to 1982. Smaller bore than the 302. Same rods & crank, Rebalanced for the smaller pistons.
