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.
