seriosuly, read the thread before you claim someone is WRONG, which you just proved yourself to be...turbo from 1983-1986, this thread says specifically, the year in question to be 1992, which is well outside of the 3 year span you just posted, but was a year in which a SUPER CHARGED 3.8 was available


so, you sir, are the one that is WRONG

I think the supercharged version was a Super Coupe, or a Thunderbird SC. But I could be wrong, I'm not a Ford guy.

its alright, I understand how. That was just an example of the turbo bird, they were built later with more hp.
Ninth Generation (1983-1986): "Aero Birds"

10th Generation (1987-1988): "Even More Aerodynamic Birds"
both were turbo.

I was talking about special K's post anyways.
if you were to read back on the entire threa, it sounds like you at first forgot about the turbo birds. That is where I chimed in.
