I would also ask folks about a 3.0L fan - most folks use the 3.8L.

Doesnt a 94 bird have a mod motor? I dont think the mod motor alt is a 3G in the conventional sense.

Good luck.
 
That alt is wrong and make sure you don't p/u one just because it has 180' brackets. There are 2 diff types with 180' one has extended wider brackets, other is shorter. Get the shorter one. Stay away from the taurus alternators too, from what I've heard they actually need a custom made spacer or belt will slip. About the fan, don't think that fan you got will get enough CFM, go with any 3.8 off a contiental or taurus. Mark vii fan is better more cfm
 
Here's my personal Pull-a-Part shopping list: :nice:

Remember alternators that didn't come from a mustangs might need a custom pulley spacer otherwise belt will slip.

130 Amp Alternators (Grab Pigtail)
Mustang 3.8L (94, 95, 96, 97, 98, 99, 00)
Mustang 5.0L (94, 95)
Taurus/Sable 3.0L (93, 94, 95, 96, 97, 98, 99) except sho
Thunderbird/Cougar 3.8L (94, 95, 96, 97) non sc
Winstar 3.0L (95, 96, 97, 98)

Explorer 5.0 HO Intake Manifold
Upper
Lower (If it don’t have EGR Port-must mod & drill) (Will need sn95 elbow for TB & EGR)

Heads
GT40 93-95 Cobra, 95-Early97 Explorer/Mountaineers 5.0L V8
(3 Vertical Bars front of head)

GT40P +97 Explorers/Mountaineers 195cc (Needs BBK Unequal Shorty Headers)
(4 Vertical Bars front of head) (If need to keep emissions, P heads don’t come w/thermactor air holes drilled into back of head.)

351W C9AE, D0OE, (Stock 180cc) (Ported 192cc) (Valve & Ported 211cc)
351W D8OE (Came standard on 79-84 302 mustangs) (Has larger combustion chambers thus lowering compression = good for superchargers, but not good for n/a)

Front Disc Brakes
SN95 GT/V6/Cobra: Spindles & Calipers (94-95 only) Get entire assembly – pads, banjo bolts, & brake lines.

(Option 2: Best Calipers) 99-04 GT/V6/Cobra Calipers: Take entire assembly, Still requires SN94/95 spindles!

Rear Disc Brakes
Axles: SN95 V8/V6/Cobra (94-98) Can’t use v6 gears or axle housing, too weak!!! Only use V6 for axles, calipers, & brake lines. Do Not Direct Bolt On!

If lucky & find 94-98 V8 rear-end, p/u entire rear-end assembly.

E-Brake Lines & Brake Lines

Rotors 10”: V8/V6 (94-98) No Cobra’s because their rotors, brackets, & pads are only made specific for Cobra. Rotors too large.

((((Don’t need to know cause ain’t using cobra rotors!!! But FYI brackets are specific, if using Cobra rotors need the Cobra bracket. V6/GT rotors need V6/GT brackets.))))

Calipers 38”: 94-04 V8/V6/Cobra

Master Cylinder
Cobra (93)
SN95 (94, 95, 96, 97, 98) V6 (no cobra/gt, results in soft pedal)
