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.

96 Mercury Cougar XR7 4.6V8, Hot Rod Red, Quick Blast to Check Camera Audio
Testing out the mic on the camera to see if it can capture the sound of a
much quieter car. The hot rods I've been trying to film lately have been
too loud. It seems the Cougar proved to be too loud as well, sounded a bit
like a space shuttle launch. I'm going to have to devise a better way to
capture the sound. Not an all-out tire smoking launch, but still a mildly
entertaining look out the windshield.
Mercury Cougar - American Muscle Car
An excellent TV show featuring the classic Mercury Cougar. They cover all
the classic years, and talk about all the different engines and option
packages you could get. Only a couple minor mistakes (they say the that
XR-7 package included a 4-speed stick, then show an automatic shifter in
one... derrr) but overall a very nice overview of these cars.
67-68 Cougar Buying Guide: What To Look For

those of you trying to sell, to more accurately advertise the strengths and
weaknesses of your car.

In this episode, we tackle the daunting task of installing a convertible

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.
Front Suspension & Chassis Upgrades - '68 Cougar / Mustang
In this video, we show some of the ways you can easily stiffen your car's
chassis and upgrade your front suspension. Using Andrew's '68 Cougar as a
guinea pig, we bolt on, and weld on, some simple parts that will make a big
difference in reducing the torsional flex that these front ends are prone
to, as well as improving the integrity of the shock towers.
