I have a 1990 Ford Probe LX with a 3.0. Will a 5.0 bolt up to the same motor mounts?
Also will the matching 5.0 automatic transmission bolt up? Love my old Probe, bought it new.
Any help with any other engine and tranny swap will be appreciated. love to do a manual
but can not find every thing necessary.

I can't help with a recommendation for you, but I would think any other engine/trans would need fabrication for mounting plus think of the wiring! Any reason you can't get the 3.0 auto to work?

Yes sir, but I will have to do a rebill on both the Engine And Tranny. Trans slips bad and the Engine is smoking with a lot of internal noise. I love that ole car, loaned it to my Grandson for a semester of College. That is the way he brought it back.
