Doing a 88 TC 2.3t swap to a fox body getting info/parts list now to get a head start
#31

I was totally wrong with my timeline lol. Weekend maybe nonstop and a ton of coffee, redbulls, maybe other substances and it might possibly run but unlikely. 




So I did accomplish yanking the motor from the 88 TC in and mocking it up in the fox body in about 3 hours on Saturday night. It might of been faster but that was my first ever motor pull, I had some mechanic help in the beginning but after we were on our own (my bro in law and myself). 

The one thing that threw me off was the fact that the fox body has a QA1 Tubular K member and the mounts on it were only for a 5.0 and I had convertible 5.0 motor mounts on 2.3 brackets but I was still unsure about if it would work. I couldn't find anyone else running that K member with a 2.3T. After a ton of over thinking and analyzing I realized its fine lol. 

Def have to chop installing it in segments as I work full time and typically on the weekends for overtime. This upcoming weekends goal is to secure the motor in the cradle and then do a clutch, pilot bearing, rear main seal, throw out bearing, 2.3 clutch cable. After that get the actual trans bolted in with the cross member and driveshaft.

If that goes smoothly then the following weekend work on the wiring harness which is something i'm definitely overthinking lol.


Speaking of driveshafts....whats the right driveshaft I should be running? TC or a Fox body driveshaft for a v8/2.3??
