    I would say so... The block itself should be identical... The 91-93 cougars were only rated at 205, but that is with the 94-95 mustang style upper intake... They would already come with 19# fuel injectors, and I do believe that all have stuff for mass air. I don't think that all the sensors and parts will interchange though. The brackets are different and the timing cover maybe different as well. Also they have e7te heads I do believe.

    Oh and also, the 94-95 mustangs were only rated at 215 hp, but as far as I can tell the main parts are all the same.

    Also it has a different water pump and timing cover (the same as used on the 94-95 5.0 Mustangs). You would need to swap a Fox timing cover and water pump on.

    Not if you use the accesories from the MN-12

    Someone here did it in an 83 If I'm not mistaken, could have been an '84...

    Are you saying the only difference to the cam in the 91-93 t-bird/Cougar 5.0 is the rocker arms?

    I'm only asking since the block I was getting, the seller is having problems with it and I haven't gotten it for about 5 weeks now.

    No, what's being said is that the '91-'93 'bird/cougar HO has the '93 cobra spec cam...it's a milder cam than the HO cam is...what made it seem slightly more agressive in the cobra was the 1.7 roller rockers that the '93 cobra had...the 91-93 cougar/bird did not have 1.7 rockers.

    And I'm actually looking into something that may be a contradiction to that (from a reliable source).....Does anyone have a Cobra cam laying around?

    Eric, is the cam in your 'vert a Cobra cam? If so did you write the part # anywhere?

    **Update -- the 91-92 Cougarbird has the F1SE cam though....Only the '93's have the Cobra cam.
