Something to think about, from everything I have read, the 93-95 Mark VIII's did not have the PATS system to worry about. So no need to use the steering column crap. I have seen aftermarket pcm's but they get pricey, seems like they were around $1,500. I have been interested in this swap for quite some time for my 71 Mach 1 and have been researching it alot. I just have yet to find a donor car, time and the room to get busy on it.

You are correct, no PATS on the 93-95 Mark VIII.

Im just beginning to install a 5.4 from a 02 lightning into my 63 unibody. The detail zone is a resource as well and I downloaded a complete wiring diagram for the truck for $12.00 from ahdol.com. I will be glad to share anything I have along the way and would appreciate any help. This is a first for me. Let me know if a mew post is started

I was looking around for headers for the truck and found something you might be interested in it granted it is a 4.6L but it comes with everything you would need and is new

Wow, that's not a bad deal either, complete with ECU ...

56 firewall modifications for a modular engine

Hi everyone!
This is my first baby step into the FTE forums, and I was wondering if anyone who's done the conversion I'm currently working on has information that will help me.
I have a 2007 Expedition 5.4 V8 with the 6 speed auto trans I want to put in my 56. I have every inch of wiring harness from the truck and the PCM, and I'll use the Ron Francis setup to delete the PATS, etc.
My chassis has a TCI independent front end with discs and I'm using the TCI 4-link at the rear to locate a '97 Explorer 8.8 rear end so I have 4wheel disc brakes, and I will use a Ridetech system for the airbag suspension. I have 15" steel rims with baby moons that will have whitewall tires soon.
Here's where I need help - can anyone who has successfully completed a similar swap provide me with information on modifications to the firewall - width of cut, height of cut, depth of cut (looks like it needs to be about 4") and any pictures if they have them.
Thanks in advance for any help!

We are in the middle of swapping a 4.6/4R75 into a 1985 F150 (along with the front suspension). Here is a link to our build thread if anyone is interested:
https://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/1...wap-4-6-a.html

As soon as we get this truck sent out to paint, I have the same swap planned for my '77 F100 using a 2008 Crown Vic donor with 53k miles.

These are called Resto Mods right?
I dig it.
Id walk past a line of antiques at a car show, but if a fuel injected engine was stuffed into one, Id stop and look and enjoy.
