If you have something to add please PM a moderator the information and it will be added to this thread.

To start here is information on what will fit and answer the many questions. This will be a work in progress so keep checking back!

Please Click Here for information about the diffrent generations and HP/TQ ratings.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: What Engines will fit in my car?
A: With enough time and money, anything. But for the average mechanic with little to no custom fabrication, what is listed in the detailed information will fit.

Q: How much will it cost?
A: If you have to ask, then you should not try this. Honestly, the questions depends what you have, what you want, and what deals you can get. 99.8% of the time it would be cheaper and much easier to sell the car you have and buy what you want.

Q: Can I do it myself?
A: Once again, if you have to ask, don't even try it. It takes a minimum of alot of tools and knowledge to do something like this. Plus if this is your daily driver, your going to be walking for a while!

Q: How long will it take?
A: Once again, there are too many variables to know!

Q: Where can i get the parts?
A: Try ebay, ford dealer, www.car-part.com, local junk yards, and other forums.

Q: Has anyone done this before?
A: some of the below listed swaps have been done. Mostly in the Gen 1's and Gen 2's. Very few of the newer cars have ever had swaps done.

Q: Can I put a SHO engine in my SLO?
A: Please see below!

Q: Can i put "x" yamaha in my "y" gen taurus?
A: The diffrences between the 1/2 and 3/4 Generations are significant. The frame, body and engines changed radically. SO without SERIOUS custom modification, Yout cant up a v8 in your gen 1/2 and you cant put a v6 yamaha in your gen 3/4.

Q: I want a 5-speed in my car, HOW?
A: Depends on year. The first 2 generations offered 5-speeds with some engines that can be swapped in. The 3/4 Generations never offered a 5-speed, so at this point it has not been done. I'm currently working on a CUSTOM 5-speed.

Q: I really want a gen 2 SHO engine in my Gen 3/4. Is there any way to do it?
A: SEE THE FIRST QUESTION!!!
