I was wondering if any one knew if a 5.4 DOHC would fit in a tbird width wise? I know the 5.4 SOHC will but what about the DOCH? Thanks

its been attempted, no one has completed photos, just stages, iirc it can be swapped into a mkvIII, on the bird there a bit more clearence issues that would need to be addressed, mainly the shock towers, with cutting and welding or a bfh I assume this could be taken care of but its not worth risking the structural intergity of the suspension.

My wife works at a really high performance shop. Guy has his Cobra R there with 56k miles on it. Wants a diffrent engine and she called dibs on it for me lol All the guys that work there are chevy guys so they don't want it. They have done 5.4 DOCH installs in mustangs so I might have luck with them getting it in the T-bird guess i'll find out..

yes there is a 5.4L SOHC installed and operational, but NOT the 5.4L DOHC.
