Brazed/ modified fuel rail. About $100+ to have done if you’re not up to it
http://www.fototime.com/08B117EDCCEAC3B/orig.jpg
Connecting Rod Bolts F3LY-6214-A need 12 ($23)
Clevite 77 rod bearings #CB-1772P ($35 from Napa)
Exhaust manifold gaskets(one time use) $6 each, need 2
BCA part# 482041N Oil Seal, Front Timing Cover. $8
2.5 Right Front Timing Cover Gasket F5RZ-6020-A $5
2.5 Center Front Timing Cover Gasket F5RZ-6020-B $5
2.5 Left Front Timing Cover Gasket F5RZ-6020-C $5
2.5 Right Valve Cover Gasket F5RZ-6584-B $11
2.5 Left Valve Cover Gasket F5RZ-6584-C $11
2.5 Spark Plug Tube Seals ($2/ea., come in packs of 2)F5RZ-6C527-A
When you have the 2.5 timing and valve covers off oil seal and gaskets need to be replaced.

Tap for knock sensor is M12x1.5. I drill it out with a 3/8 bit first and then tap the hole.

Swap over oil sensor and the 2 sensors on the head coolant cross over tube. Put a little RTV on these before reinstalling.

There will also be points on the block the will need new RTV. You’ll see them when you pull the old covers off. Take a razor blade and clean these areas before fresh RTV.

The vacuum can be done for free using the vac pieces from both engines. A piece of vac needs to be purchased to run from the brake booster to one of the UIM ports.

If you already have an SVT then swap over the cams, chains, guides, and tensioners. The having the SVT TB, bracket, cable already is also another bonus.

The EGR tubes of both engines have to be cut and joined together. Either by brazing or by a 5/8 brass compression fitting.

http://www.fototime.com/6CF78C282539675/orig.jpg

So about $900 if you have an SVT. If you don’t have an SVT TB and find a used one then order the SVT bracket and cable ($90) and braze the SVT and Taurus TB bracket together. The plastic cam needs to be dremeled a bit as well.

Hoepfully this helps some peeps out. This might be a good sticky. I pretty much summed up a lot of scattered info. If you don't like the Taurus UIM then port match the heads for the 2.5 UIM a la Demon's web page. Bolt up all your 2.5 bits and be good to go.

Click for info.

You're also doing to need a tune. Figure about $350 for a x-cal & tune from Brenspeed. Add a dyno time for the best tune on top of that.

Thanks for posting this up Todd; I know we talked about this just yesterday, lol.

On Edit - you might want to specify that the brazed fuel rail is not required for returnless cars.

You were the prod. . Also kids do not do this swap w/o upgrading the trans. You have everything out. You might as well do it right. Have it shipped to Terry for the LSD of your choice and have worn internals replaced. Figure about $1500. Tune, trans, and 3L figure about $2750 on the low end.

Can anyone confirm what needs to be done on a retunless car. I thought the Taurus FR was opposite (flipped) compared to the Tour. Can't use the Contour FR because of the bolt pattern on the LIM.
