Heyy everyone I'm looking for a little info and some clarifying to help me in my decision with my 99 Taurus SE.
First of all, am I able to take a Vulcan engine and transmission from a later Taurus (00-03) and drop it in my 99 with little swapping or will I have to change things like the wiring harness & it's whole electronic setup?
I have the 3.0 Vulcan with about 300k and a cracked cylinder in the Taurus, but I'm eligible to get a 3.0 Duratec and transmission with 198k out of a Sable from a buddy. I'm told that to put that engine in though I have to switch things like the electronics, wiring harness and what not? So if that's true then my thoughts are for that hassle I should consider A) looking for something with less kms and B) look for something possibly a little better.
Of course I realize I can look for another Vulcan engine and transmission and drop it right in with little hassle but I'm liking the idea of having something different going on under there...
Never specifically thought I'd find myself playing around with a Taurus but hey I'll take what I got and run with it!
