alright then...will a 955i fit into other frames,ie:t-bird.legend,etc?what i need to know is are the mounting points the same on all 3 cyl.engines?i realize there are subtle differences that seperate the 955i from the motors tuned for low -end . :???:

There is a fair likelyhood that th emounting points will be in the same place, but as the 955i engine was never fitted into the unitary frame used on the early models such as the TBird and Legend, there may well be some differences. the fuel injection system for the 955 would not fit these frames as the intakes point upwards to the airbox and would hit the frame.
