    1985 Coupe 5.0

    I got an 85 coupe some years back and it was a basket case. Originally a metallic brown CFI Auto non-power optioned coupe with no center console. When I got it, it was a black and not running. The engine had a knock and took some time to get running. Thanks to Frank (Fordtech) it ran on its CFI (Central Fuel Injection) again. I then swapped it to carb, 5spd, roller 5.0 that was not knocking, roller rockers, TFS stage 1 cam, full 2.5" exhaust, 8.8 T-Bird Turbo Coupe 4 lug disc brake 3.73 rear end cowl hood, eibach springs, Borbet wheels and tan tweed SN95 GT front seats... Then my Brother said he would like the car and I gave it to him. That was back in 2000... Now the car has not been running since 2009. So I am finally getting the stuff together to get it swapped to EFI and putting LT headers on it while at it. I am hoping that we can get it running well enough to get it down the track running 12's... So far the EFI setup will be newer 19# injectors, Explorer intake, and LT's. The EFI is a 93 EFI setup so it is MAF aware and should be OK for the cam. Should come together quite nicely!
