    I have purchased this item previously. It is correct for an EFI box sedan, prior to 90.

    Wagon fitment is unclear (should work maybe with some mild bending). Carb car fitment is a solid no. 90+...

    If the aero version, which I've now looked at and see is quite different but mounts similarly, is a viable option and works better then that's awesome. I only favour the RockAuto house brand Ultra...

    A couple suggestions thrown at me in other channels:

    The answers above both answer the question, but to add a little context: the valley of a SBF contains oil that is splashing around from the operation of the lifters/pushrods. This is why the front...

    Finally figured out how the 86 TV cable detaches...what a dramatically better design than the 87+ setup.

    The coil bracket is consistent with an EEC-IV CFI car - 84/85. It mounts the coil to the front of the head, behind the alternator. I'm not sure if it might also cover any of the EEC-III years but I...

    Funny thing about that is that a 3.0 OHV Taurus is my preferred donor vehicle to pull a 3G from. So I suppose I probably already have a couple of these in rotation. I'll have to check the numbers on...
