Default Lincoln 3.9L V8 into a MII?

Has anyone tried to put a 3.9L V8 out of a Lincoln LS into a MII?

I'm currently working on my sons car, a '76 Cobra II and have a '93 T-Bird with 302HO EFI and AOD that will be the drivetrain in his car. However, this little 3.9L V8 has me intrigued as well. Just wondering if someone has tried to put on into a MII? Don't know if they are front sump or rear sump pans, etc. I figure though, that along the way somewhere, sometime, maybe someone else has already tried the transplant and has a few tips if I decide to go that route.

Actually never heard of anyone doing this swap , but 250 HP @ 6100 rpm intrigues me in a little MII. Might be a fun little car. I have know some guys who put the x pipe and flow masters on that engine and it sounds mean. I just don't know enough about the engine to help ya.

That is kind of what I was thinking. The T-Bird 5.0 is 200hp/275lbft (4000rpm/3000rpm). The 3.9L V8's are: Early 00-03 252hp/267lbft (6100rpm/4300rpm) and later 03-06 280hp/286lbft (6000rpm/4000rpm).

I too think it would a fun engine in the MII. I do like the amount of torque at lower rpm from the 302, but the small displacement V8 has caught my attention. There is something fun about a high revving engine. I regularly shift the NSX between 7500-8000 rpm just to hear the engine sing!
