XR4ti T5 swap stuff for sale. Other things as well.

Post by reddy2300 »

I'm now doing a V8 swap and no longer need the 2.3/T5 parts. I don't have the pics hosted online so they aren't going to be here. Email me with pic requests. I can send them that way.

There is no complete swap. Just the items that are listed here.

E6. tested. No cracks. Comes with FelPro gasket set. SOLD

Big VAM. Tested and works. Was in the drawer as a spare for my driver. $50, shipped.

SOLD. 2-piece driveshaft for T5 application and stock type rear-end. SOLD

SOLD U-shaped cable adapter for stock Merkur cable and T5 "dogbone" style bellhousing. I think this is probably from Rapido from years ago. SOLD

SOLD. Brand new Exedy clutch kit for '83 and up 2.3/T5 combos. Exedy part number 07038. SOLD

Make an offer on all of it and get a deal. Come and pick it up and get a deal. See where I'm going here?

(I don't have an extra pedal assy. If I did, it'd be listed here.)

I can do that. Although I never have before, and I always forget to take pics along the way. Lol.

Shoot for the later 5.0L years ('92-94?) for the short water pump set-up, or try to find a complete set of brackets from that year (PS, Alt, etc. won't be affected). That gives you about 2" extra clearance from the radiator than the previous years' "long water pump" standard, and you won't have to jam the block back towards the firewall. Also, that'll give you room in front of the firewall for the crossover smog tube that spans between the back of the heads, which will keep heat down near the plastic heater/control box, and make it easier to do any work involving the upper rear of the engine.

You can use the earlier intakes with the shorter water pump, and it won't affect smog certification. The '92-'94 SN95 intakes have an integrated elbow turning the throttle body towards the air cleaner. Ford did that to fit in the narrower engine bay (and lower hood) of those models. While it's nice to have a ready-made elbow, its restrictive, and really limits what you can do with setups later.

If you're running the stock smog pump setup, you wanna' keep that rear tube so both heads get even temp.

hahahaha, smog pump.... :)

I think you're trying to say 94-95 SN95.
87=93 were the previous generation.
96 was the 4.6L.

Yep, knew it was a 2-year span involving '94 sometime. Does close count? I mixed-and matched mine as a '90 5.0L with the shorter, later water pump serpentine setup, and made no difference with smog ref. The pump is no big deal, its light. I did have to take it apart and clean it up really nice and made sure it spun easily; still noisy and I wish there was a simpler device. Quieter than any of my air compressors, but it does add several solenoids/valves and convoluted plumbing, and you can tell it does eat up a few HP at higher rpm's, though.

I won't be running smog anything. Lol. Deleting EGR and smog pump. I have a Megasquirt, so I'll not need any of that stuff to make the computer "happy".

Donor engine is (I believe) a 1994 from a Mustang GT.

All I need to complete the parts list is a good T5 bellhousing, clutch, flywheel and starter.

Minimal smog constraints. Must be nice! Or, are you registering it for off-road only?

We don't have to worry about that stuff in Ohio anymore. We did back when the cars were less than 25 years old running standard plates. I ran the collector plate and then the historical plate after reaching 25 year mark. Even then only certain counties did the tail pipe sniff test. :D
If it was easy everybody would do it.

Out here, if it's older than 25 years, it must be a gross polluter with decades-old, obsolete smog controls, driven by a mindless climate-change-denier. No eco-friendly, "virtue signalling" snot would be caught dead in something that antiquated.

It is still available. I take PayPal. Lol.

Sorry about the wait. I have been getting slayed at work for the past two weeks.
