For my first post,I am about to buy a 1992 Thunderbird with only 59,000 miles on it.What is the horse power of the 302 and what type of fuel injection would it be ? The last fuel injected truck I had was TBI on s-10 Blaser 2.8 v6 and what mule it was .then I had a ford bronco II with a 2.8 and had MPFI and it was fast for a V 6.

Re: 92 T-Bird 302

The 1992 'Bird should have MPFI on the 302. I do not know what the HP rating is on the old pushrodder, but it is still not that "fast" in terms of refined speed. It shold do OK, as I am driving a 3.8 V-6 that was rated at 140 hp...
My road car (newer and not paid for) is a 3.0 V-6 in an Infiniti, but there is no comparison between these cars. The Infiniti has 220 hp and is a lot more nimble than the 'Bird. The 302 is somewhere around 155-160 hp with a boost in the torque, too. My 4.0 Ranger will outrun the 3.8 'Bird, but "fades fast" over 50 mph...

Re: 92 T-Bird 302

The 1991 T'Birds with the 302 are rated at 200 hp at 4000 RPM and like 275 lb./ft of torque @ 3000 RPM. I doubt very seriously they changed it that much between 91 and 92. Now, thats at the flywheel, so it's probably puttin about 170ish to the ground. I know mine has plenty of torque, hehe.

When I start my car, I want the whole neighborhood to think the world is coming to an end.
