      My uncle belongs to a police force and I was wondering, and I could just be thinking a bit crazy, I've been known to do that, but would a motor from one of the police Crown Vics fit in my 91 X? They're modified motors in them right? LEt me know Xperts....thanks guy, you guys are great....I know the answers should be roolin in here :)

      not unless you are into a lot of custom fabrication and/or have lots of money...... the engine used in the late model crown vics are a 4.6 liter, 281 cubic inch engine... basically a souped up mustang

      Jimmy.. the easiest engine to swap into your X is a 5.0. You can get those in almost any year mustang.. but you'd probably want a late model one. Like 92-95.

      Also.. it will be very difficult to do a TT on your truck. You might want to go with the F150 coil spacers instead!

      Hey section525, will the poly bushings from the site Rick is promoting work also, i saw some coil spacers on there also, and if I put a 4" susp, which would you recommend and how would I get the rear to match the front since it would be 6" with the coil spacers? Thanks for ur time..

      The rear is the easiest thing to lift. You could raise it anywhere from 1/2" to 6" in a single shot.

      I'm not sure what site you're talking about Rick promoting. But what most people are doing in conjunction with the shackles are adding F150 coil spacers. Basically they're about 1 1/2" thicker than stock.

      If you're getting a suspension lift, I'd reccommend the Warrior shackles over something like add-a-leafs. They'll level you out nicely if you do the coil spacers too.

      rick and hank www.flexplorers.com have a thing going for poly bushings... they mount diff than the f150 spacers... but are essentially the same lift.....

      The best bet for a fast Police motor would be a 5.0 out of a 1979-'93 poilce Mustang. It would fit, and be powerful to boot.

      would you hear the clatter at high or low rpm's. sometimes when I'm low in the gears i can hear a clatter, thought it was bad gas, i went to 89, somewhat gone now.....I thought since I'm gonna have the top of the motor apart doin all the gaskets , why not? any thoughts?
