It would depend on your intentions. If you wanted a real sleeper, I'd locate a wrecked T-bird S/C and pull the drivetrain(engine and trans). That would probably give any smallblock fits. The S/C was a fast/quick car but weighed TOO much. In the Falcon it would be like gaining 100HP or more, over the 'bird, just from the weight loss.

Hmmmm What years would be good to look for? What kind of power did they put out?

I'm a chevy guy, so I don't know too much about Ford motors.

They were only made a few years from about '89 to somewhere in the early to mid '90s. They had an eaton supercharger and forged cranks. I would probably avoid the first year model because they had some bad cranks. Although they were warranteed by Ford with an improved forging, depending on when the vehicle was wrecked it may not have been done. Pan removal would verify by the crank #. I would have to look at the literarture for te car, but I think they were rated higher than the 5.0 GT engines. Had matching 5speed. Very neat car, but as I said somewhat overweight...even Ford thought they tipped the scales a little much.

They were made from '89-'95. Early ones were 200HP/300lb/ft of torque, later ones 230HP/330lb/ft. The later ones had intercoolers. I didn't check their weight but believe it was about 4000+ pounds a real pig.

Weren't those engines the ones made by Yamaha? Or maybe designed by them? I remember reading literature....built much like a motorcycle engine. Aluminum block and heads, dual overhead cams, pretty neat little deal.

If that's the one you're talking about, that'd be sweet in that Falcon.

A 300 six will fit, Carrol Shelby used one in his Falcon shop sedan delivery in the 60's if I remember correctly and yes it can produce plenty of power, Ak Miller won the Baja 500 several times with a 300-6 in a pickup, You might want to wander around the Inliners forum at www.inliners.org for more info.

Your thinking of the Taurus SHO engine, and yes it was pretty cool. There were some (can't remember which model now, maybe Fiesta) cars produced in that period that used a SHO power train in the backseat of what was a front drive car and called it the SHOgun. It was about $30K at the time and they lost money on evry one they made. They had to buy complete Taurus SHO's to get the powertrain because Ford was concerned about lawsuits and would sell them just the powertrains. They thought that they could make it up on the back end by parting out the rest of the cars because they ahd leather interiors,etc....I think that was an afterthought and they waited too long...went belly up so to speak.I don't think it would be easily adapted to a rear wheel drive car since it was a tranverse front driver. You might be able to locate one of those SHOguns at a reasonable price now days...but maybe not, I'd hold on to it if I could have afforded one.
