Oh I.just thought of another question. Will the pcm on my 96 Cougar notice a difference in the amount of air that's flowing through the engine due to the increased cubic inches as to say will I need to have a reflash and a tune done or will the stock perimeters be ok.
I think it would run fine as long as you have a MAF setup as opposed to speed density, but what I think and what happens in the real world dont always coincide. A tune would be good to get anyway for all the other benefits it gives you. I am sure racecougar or one of the other swappers can verify whether you "need" a tune for it to run.
Use the stock 14lb 3.8L injectors and you'll have it running, but to get the most out of it you'll need to go with the injectors the 4.2 came with. They're either 19 or 21lbers and will require a tune or chip.
Thanks for all the input. Hopefully it will be awhile before I have to do anything to the car because it only has 88k miles, but I'm going to start gathering parts now and start build my engine and working over the heads and intake.
I'm looking for an EVO valve for my 1992 t-bird power steering unit. A part number might help the search? The high pressure hose connection is trashed on the valve body. I need a "new" one. It's a 3.8 LX if this helps.
Hi guys new to the forum I have a 94 sn95 with a tired 3.8 my friend started the super coupe swap for his sn95 years ago and unfortunately never finished. He recently parted out the supercharged and was left with a fully built block with ported heads all new pistons but it has sat for a few...
Okay, so I am pleading ignorance, and I am needing help figuring out just what I need to do to go forward. I had the 1989 SC engine block bored .030", decked the block, milled heads, valve job, new cam bearings, and had them assemble .030" pistons on the rods. The mains were .010" as were the...
Getting my 89 Cougar XR7 SC back on the road. No brakes and when I hit the brake pedal the VMM smoked. Is there any connection between the VMM and the brakes or was this a coincidence? Does anyone have a pinout for the VMM?
So im not sure what the f*&^ the green vaccume line that comes off the egr valve go. Mine broke removing the eaton m90 to do gaskets. Found it under the car. I have a suspicion that it was previosly broken as there was gaf tape on the line. Where does the other end go so i can get a new line ran?
