Smile tempo engine upgrade???

hi, im a newbie to the boards, and i have a question about my car. I drive a 1992 Ford Tempo GL, and I want to do a few things to it. First off, I want to stick a different engine in the car, how big of an engine can you stick into a 1992 Ford Tempo, seriously, If it were possible I wanted to put in a V8 engine, it would be a big help to know if it were possible...thank you for your time.

Re: tempo engine upgrade???

I have known that others have put in a Taurus 6cyl. I have seen one Tempo with a Chevy Lt1 in it, but that was a showhorn job.

I'm not sure you could get much more than a V6 in there. You are limited by frame rail width and firewall to radiator width. The 92-94 models were offered with the 3.0 Vulcan V6 with a manual or automatic.
