    '90 Mk VII HO302

    Just some general Q's ...

    1. Does the 'stang cat-less H-pipe bolt to the MkVII's headers without issue?
    2. Do the MkVII's take the Impala tail pipes?
    3. Does a MkVII with HO302 and 3.27's move quick? Scott, how does your MkVII compare to your Town Car?
    4. Does the digital dash have any major electrical issues to watch out for?
    5. Did these cars come with 15" steelies, or are the steelies 16"?
    6. Do the MkVII's have any frame or body rust points to watch out for?

    All other relevant info is appreciated.

    1 i'm pretty sure they are the same
    2 no......theres a place in ny that makes a mandrel bent cat back system for the mk7.....gadget has their's a work of art.
    3 it's quick.......only mods to my car are exhaust, 134,000 miles......ran a 16.08 at numidia during scottfest.
    4 the digital clusters have some sort of ground problem speedo always works, sometimes my odomoter reads error
    5 90-92 cars came with 16" bbs wheels.....84-89 bill blass's had aluminum wire wheels, 84-87 lsc's had 15" aluminum wheels, and 88-89 lsc's had 16" aluminum turbines......the only steel wheel is the minispare.
    6 they are a unit body car, need to make sure the floors are good, rust areas are the rocker panels, and the trunk lid and the trunk frame by the back window
    also keep in mind that the air springs generally have a 15 year life........the abs accumulator will probably need to be changed also along with a brake flush (over a gallon).......they are fun cars tho

      Awesome. Thanks.


        Pretty much what he said. Mine has 230k on it and it moves. Never been to the track, but it feels as fast as the Townie does, and it runs a 16.02.

        Just keep in mind, these cars have a huge amount of electronics in them, and they are getting old. The parts fail, and sometimes they do strange things. You'll also really need a Ford shop manual for it if you want any hope of keeping your sanity. There are systems on these cars that are unlike most any other car on the road, and without that manual you'll be in trouble if something happens. The air suspension and ABS diagnostic routines in particular are extremely useful, and not something that most places are familier with.
