Since most of you don't know me. I've owned Cougars since 1985 and currently have 8 Cougars ranging from 67 to 69. Right now I don't own one in the 83 -88 generation, but in the past I had a 83 with the 3.8L and put over 300,000 on it before it got sold. Also had a 89 3.8L Supercharge Cougar and a 97 4.6L Cougar. Hope to add a 86 turbo 5spd to the collection some day. I work in the auto industry and did engine development on all the engines offered in the 83 to 88 Cougars.

Best regards,
                      Brian Carpenter, President CATS
