I have installed 91 t-bird 5.0 in my Modified MGB. I had the complete car and stripped all the wireing from it a couple of years ago, I had the T-bird running with all the wire removed and sitting on the floor before I pulled the engine. Now a couple years later I cant get it all figured out again. Anybody used this set up in a swap I could use some wiring help. I am using a 5 speed not the AOD.

Hope I wasn't to long winded.
Thanks
Joe

You can use the same computer without trouble. You need to make sure the speed sensor can hook up to help prevent stalling when you coast, clutch, and come to a stop. The smog stuff can get hairy. I've got a car now with it removed and its giving me fits. VinnieTBird is one resident expert I can stear you to. I think his is '89 but similar.

This is my 1st post here!

I used a 92 Thunderbird 5.0L in my 71 Mustang Convertible EFI swap.
The intake fits much nicer than the earlier motors.
My EEC was an H2M, yours may be this or P3M?
The H2M was not supported in the tuning world, so I am now using a 94 Mustang T4M0 with an EEC tuner attached which is very similar pin out to the tbird.
I would be happy to share my experience an wiring info with you if you use the Tbird as a donor.

Is the intake any better than a regular 5.0 intake? I also bought a '92 cougar 5 litre. From the looks of it, it has the same intake from a '94 and up mustang to fit the lower hood profile. It looks like a shorter height but longer runners. Any info out there?

It has always been the rumor that the 94 intake does not flow as well, but I am pretty confident you likely cannot feel the difference in reality.
If you absolutely want every last tweak for HP (high RPM and flow) you should use the Explorer 5.0L intake or something aftermarket....
However the 94 intake flows quite well, MUCH better torque all over the place than a carburetor, and the install is much cleaner looking (in my opinion).

Thanks for the reply as mentioned above I figured out the wiring a couple of years ago but now I hook up everything like i had written down but can't get anything to happen no engine light no fuel pump nothing. I am just about to purchase an after market harness but I woulg rather spend the 600 on other goodys.

I just got home from working out of town I will look at my noted in the morning and let you know what I have as to compare if that is ok

Thanks Joe

Does anybody have a schematic for the EEC Powe relay on the 91 t-Bird.
I have the full schematics for the car and can't find the EEC pwr relay any where on it.

Thanks

Sorry for not replying I just caught that I had messages from you guys this morning. I have been gone a lot WORK if you know what I mean.

Any way the EEC selenoid is differant than the Mustang in fact just about everything on this 91 is, 91 has its own schematic and it is differant than any other year T-Bird and T-bird is way differant than Mustang, the only thing in common is the bottom end and the heads, I hope they are the same anyway


Well I caved in and purchased The Painless harness so the wiring end will be taken care of, it looks kind of cheap but it is simple we will see how it works.

Question what is the best 5 speed computer (88-93 Mustang) what ones do I want to stay away from, is the Ford racing ones a good choice or are they the same as any other Mustang Computer

I am getting close to hearing this thing run I am getting motivated again
