    Let me preface this by saying im not planning this but merely asking for my own knowledge and curiosity. Can an 87-88 TC motor be bolted in the 94-95 cars? Would the wiring work be the same as in a foxbody(re-pinning and whatnot)? I would assume it would be very similar but you know what they say about assumptions. Any info please post up!

    The wiring between an SN95 and fox are quite different. I will tell you however that this has already been done, a guy over at turboford has a turbo 2.3 SN95 up and running around.

    I see that he used a motor plate to mount his. I'll have to do more research to see if standard 2.3 foxbody Mounts fit the 94-95 k-member.

    There should be no issue. The crossmembers from 79-95 are interchangeable.

    They will, you just have to register a special way. I am over there with my yahoo addy. There are directions on how to do it and the admin will contact you and verify you are not a spam bot and all that good stuff.
