Re: 5.0 In A Fairmont Futura
As the Fairmont Futura is a Fox-body, the 5.0 will fit easily. Sourcing parts from a Fox Mustang (79 to 93) will be the easiest, as the wreckers are full of them over there. Give him the AOD tranny with the engine to make it easier for him. Actually, the AOD in the full-sized Fords, such as your Lincoln have a wider set of ratios than AOD's fitted to Mustangs and Thunderbirds, much better performance-wise.
