3.8 liter 6 cylinder fuel injected engine and automatic shift lever to make a stock '95 mustang
Posted by ketchupman on Monday, June 03, 2019 5:37 PM

Does anyone know what kit i can find a 3.8 liter fuel injected engine i can use to make a stock '95 mustang. All those kits have an 8cyl and would like to model 1 stock with a 6 and automatic. Tried looking at alot of places to even find a floor shift of one too but struck out. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I know that Amt made a 93 and 95 Ford Ranger and i`m sure they had v6`s in them,not sure how accurate they would be for a car, you may have to scratchbuild the shifter.

The AMT Taurus SHO had a 3 liter V6 which is a spactacular looking motor. It should be pretty close for a start anyway. I used it in a hot rod ... here's a few engine shots and I see them on ebay at reasonable prices. This engine is a looker!

I had to  mount it longitudinal so added a transmission,

It is indeed very nice, but unfortunately the SHO engine, being a DOHC engine built by Yamaha, has nothing in common with a Ford V-6

Perfection is achieved not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.

The engine can be used from any of the Revell Cougar and T-bird models from 1990 on. the intake however would need to be scatch built.

The AMT '96 Explorer has a 4.0 with an automatic transmission. You may have to switch out the tail shaft. I think that's about as close as you're gonna get from a kit. You can usually get one dirt cheap on ebay.

The Revell Cougar actually comes with a V-8 automatic. The SC T-Bird has the blown V-6 with a 5 speed.

I have the 1990 Cougar kit and the Thunderbird, both come with a supercharged V6. I changed the 5 speed to an automatic from a 5.0 L to replicate a real car I had.

The Cougar I have is a '92 . That must be the difference. I bought it (online) to build a replica of my mother's car thinking it would have the V-6. But, it came with a V-8 automatic. Never did do anything with it. Strange that Revell would switch up the engines on those models. They couldn't have sold very well.
