3.8 to 4.6 help required
We are in the process of trying to fit a 97 cougar 4.6 into a 97 stang with a 3.8.
The 3.8 through a rod, so we needed a motor.
We were told by a local wrecker that the cougar motor would work. We got the runnig cougar motor, ecm, harness, tranny, and rad for 500$.
Cheapest 3.8 we could find was 2500$
So we decided to give the 4.6 a try.
Its now in my uncles shop and things dont appear to be lining up. The K-frame is supposed to be the same.
Is it possible the actual mounts on the engine are different, or is the cougar 4.6 just different altogether?
Any help, links, phone numbers, tips or whatever someone could add would be greately appreciated.
Been searching for this one three days with no luck.
