Yes sortof...

Your turbocoupe has a borg-warner t5 tranny...The bellhousing is seperate from the transmission. You'll just need a bellhousing from any smallblock ford with a t5.

But why? You can make your turbocoupe pretty fast on alot less money than it would cost to build a 351 and install it. Not to mention...it's a great feeling to know that you took the road less traveled. I love the look on people's faces when I pop the hood and they see it's only a 4cyl...

For more information, goto http://www.turbotbird.com and http://www.turboford.org . There's plenty of info on those 2 sites about your car whichever path you choose. Good luck!
