    They didn't make a V6 Mustang in those years. Last year with a V6 was 83 or 84, until the SN95 models came out in 94.

    I'm sure someone is misinformed. Everyone that doesn't know Mustangs thinks they have always had just a V8, and a V6 available. A lot of people just assume the base model fox mustangs were V6's.

    Here is a random question ... is the older fox v6 in any way similar to the 94+ 3.8? As a stripped fox coupe with a newer 1999 + 3.8 with some head/cams nitrous etc. would be a lot of fun.

    The 3.8L out of an 83-86 mustang/capri/cougar/thuderbird/marquis/LTD/continental is the same engine as the 94-04 3.8L, however there were of course many design modifications done. I don't know how much actually interchanges or swaps, but it is the same engine. As a side note though, this engine is of the 90 degree design and is basically a small block Ford v8 with 2 cylinders cut off. It does not share any similarites with the Ford Cologne series of 60 degree V6's (such as the 4.0L, 2.8L, 2.9L, 2.6L).

    I don't know if the old engines were throttle body injected (like they were in the Thunderbird & Cougar until 1989) or carbed, but I'm sure they had V-belts and some minor annoying differences.

    It'd probably be half as much money and effort to put a V8 or 2.3 Turbo into an old 3.8 car, than it would be to adapt a newer 3.8, but I could be wrong.

    Yah ... that is what Ifigured ... mind you even just figuring out the electronics would be a nightmare. I really need to find something to do with this 2000 3.8 mustang engine I have sitting around.
