92 5.0 HO cougar 0-60
1992 5.0 HO 25th anniversary cougar 0-100 mph. This is a bone stock car.
The cougars from this era were known to have a restrictive Exhaust system as well as a power-leeching smog
pump. I plan on putting a full cat-back Exhaust on it.

95 Mercury Cougar - How to do a burnout
I got tired of watching lame attempts at doing
burnouts/donuts/drifting?/etc. on here so I decided to make a video to show
you how its done. Two accidents, one bad cylinder, 150,00 miles, larger
rear tires and it's only a V6. YEAH a V6. so NO EXCUSES FOR DOING LAME
Cougar XR7 3.8L Supercharged V6
3.8L Supercharged V6
In 1989 and for the first time in Cougar history, no V8 engine would be
offered. The lower cowl of the new MN-12 chassis did not allow the
traditional 5.0L to clear the hood; engineers would continue to work on
getting the 5.0L to fit without a power decrease and finally get it into
the cars for 1991. In the meantime, the base engine was the
naturally-aspirated 140 HP 3.8L V6. The XR7 and the Thunderbird Super Coupe
would receive the all-new supercharged 3.8L V6. By incorporating the Eaton
M90 the motor put out a respectable 210 horsepower and over 300 lbs
of torque. Optional on the XR7 was a Mazda-derived M5R2 5-speed manual
transmission. The "truck" transmission was chosen because it could manage
the supercharged motor's torque production. Eaton had been urging Ford to
incorporate the modified Roots-type positive displacement pump since 1977.
The 1989 and 1990 Cougar XR7 was winner when Ford finally decided to use it
on the 3.8L V6.
