Found a desert T missing driveline...... was toying w the idea of finding an ecoboost turbo plant and figuring a way to adapt to a mustang stick.....


i know this is not the accepted way to restore,,,,, "but thats the way i roll"..... only been researching this for a day or two but are there modern 4bangers rwd Fuel injected that will go in a T ?

i have access to a machine shop,,, lol and more specifically a great machinist...

This question would be better suited on HAMB. The guys posting here in the T, A, V8 section stick with the original type running gear with some modifications like carbs etc (maybe) but keeping the original 4, 6 or 8 engines that came with the car or truck in the era they were made.

The hamb guys might think turbo engines are uncool, some of them are kind of judgmental about things like that.

But if the car you found has axles i am sure you can adapt something with only a modification to the driveshaft and pinion bearing and something under the frame for the front radius rod ball to be clamped into, plus the engine cradle. In an ideal world these would be 1 point at the front crossmember that can rotate slightly and 1 point on each side of the engine, nearer the firewall.
