Doing a 88 TC 2.3t swap to a fox body getting info/parts list now to get a head start
#1

Hey everyone its been a while lol.

If all goes well I should be the owner a 1989 Notchback roller in the spring, ive wanted a notch for a really long time but between life and a mortgage its never been feasible. The roller is in good shape (needs a paint job though) and has a tubular k frame (I dont know the brand) a manual rack and some other minor stuff nothing crazy. The car has a 5 speed pedal setup already in it and was previously a 3.8/t5 super coupe car until it blew up. It should have a t5 cross member already. It has a 8.8 rear in it already but I think he wants that rear end for another car not a huge ordeal though. I know the last harness that was in it was the 3.8 super coupe harness which is no good to me. 

On to the good part: 
I have a complete running 88 5 speed turbo coupe that has a rough undercarriage. It needs a clutch but it runs and all in all a great donor car. My goal is to swap the harness, engine, trans, rear end into the fox body. I have access to a ton of spare parts already from a few buddies. What will I need to make this go smoothly? 

I plan on running the stock ecu but will do a pimp later on im sure...how hard is it to eliminate that big relay box from the 88 TC? Or should I just source a non TC harness?

As far as going from hydraulic to cable clutch setup does anyone happen to have a parts list for that or know what parts ill need? 

If I do TC disc rear end do I need to do anything special with the Master or Booster, I heard its going to be a bit wider but if it bugs me maybe I can have it shortened later. 

Would the stock TC motor mounts work in a fox? 


Im sure more questions will pop up later. I definitely dont have a ton of free time so im hoping hit this swap armed and prepared for as much as possible. Any links or lists of stuff ill need is greatly appreciated it. Ive been out of the loop for many many years so I need some refreshers lol. 

Thanks everyone!!
