Swap V6 to 2.3
« on: August 20, 2012, 10:03:19 PM »
  I looked at a few posts, would it correct that to go from a V6 to a 2.3 all I have to use is pinto 2.3 engine mounts? The crossmember and
stools are the same?  I did find that the bellhousing is different too, this is not an issue.
   Thanks

I'm unsure if the throttle cable is long enough & the V6 radiator has the outlets in the wrong place.
