Completely different engine. Info on your engine. http://www.therangerstation.com/tech...cylinders.html They suggest swapping in a 2.3 turbo 79-’81 Mustangs, ’85-’89 Merkur XR4Ti’s, ’83-’88 Thunderbird TurboCoupes and some ’83-’86 Cougar XR-7’s. Info here: http://www.therangerstation.com/tech...ry/Turbos.html
