I checked on the internet and I could not find a 6 cyl ford thunderbird. only the one described above. So I guess it is an 8 banger.

It looked pretty huge for a 6 banger tho.

they're all the same size car. Different powertrain/drivetrain.
this is all you need to know..bored out, high compression, big cam, aviation fuel....bus lengths.

The Thunderbird and Cougar also came with the 3.8 V6. Again with a lame 5000 RPM redline.

It could of been a turbo couple too. Same thing as the 4 banger SVO mustangs. I raped the shit out of some cocky kid who thought his car would beat anybodys because it was turbo lol!

TBirds both came with turbos or SC's, it depends on the generation.

HP doesn't really matter as Tbirds are as heavy as Shaq :-)
