8.8 swap

I found a 8.8 for $75 out of a 04 crown vic. Tag says it had 4.55 gears. Can I run these?

Re: 8.8 swap

If you have 4.56 fronts I don't see why not. Why did you choose one out of crown Vic? Not familiar with the CV one but I have an explorer 8.8 in mine. What's the width on that?

VIc i think is wider woth drums. May even be the lesser spline count.

Re: 8.8 swap

It probably is labeled wrong. No street car would have 4.55 gears. Prob meant to write 3.55.
Only way to know for sure is by counting teeth

Re: 8.8 swap

Yeah, I believe the Vic and Mustang 8.8's were 28-spline. Give the yoke a spin and confirm the 4.55. That does sound low for a street car!
