1997 tbird, motor swap, 3.8 to 4.6

Discussion in '1989 - 1997 Ford Thunderbird' started by RefriedTbird, Oct 2, 2018.

  1. I have a 97 Tbird that I've been contemplating swapping the original 3.8 V6 for the 4.6 V8 and I'm trying to find out if the transmission used for the 3.8 is the same used for the 4.6, mainly to know if the bolt pattern is anywhere near the same.
