Re: couple questions

I'm 98% positive that the engine will fit as both are 2.3 Turbos, just check the trans. If it's AOD, I believe you're fine. As far as anything else, I'm not too sure...

Re: couple questions

from what I have been told you can throw the ford performance catalog at the drivetrain. I am still un-clear if this is true.

I agree with thunder, that 2.3 is a 2.3. I also think the 5 speeds are similar as well.
