Ok, I have an 87' Fox with the 5.0 in it thats ready for the junkyard. I was thinking about pulling out the motor and building it and turning around and trying to drop it into a 95 that has a 5.0 in it. What would I need to do this and what are some problems I might run into. Thanks

the only issue you would have that I can think of would be the upper half of the motor, mainly the intake, there is some difference between them.

Just make sure you retain everything from the front of the 95 (timing cover, water pump, and accessory brackets, etc) and it will drop right in.

you might want to consider doing a fox throttle body swap since you have the parts.
thats if you want or plan to.

Yea, thanks for the advice. What about a knock sensor. My motor now doesnt have one (Dont know why?) and I dont know if a 95 has one. Thanks for the advice.
