Re: cougar v6 swap ??

Looks like they added quite a bit to the newer generation. I don't think the basic engine changed, just how much they monitored it. I'd look at swapping the intakes and fuel rails. Since you can pretty much sit the engines side by side, swap out what's different. If someone knows better, please jump in!
