History of Engines and Transmission

The engines offered for the 1982 Fox Body included a 2.3L 4-cylinder, 3.3L 6-Cylinder, 4.2L V8, and a 5.0L V8. The H.O. (high-output) V8 engine package wasn’t tied to the GT, either. It was available as an optional engine for any ’82 Mustang at a pretty steep price.
