I have recently purchased a second 1999 Mercury Cougar and it does not have an engine or transmission. I would like to know what engines besides the stock ones fit and how can i tell if I come across one. And how do you tell what kind of transmission you need? I was hoping to beef up the horsepower and not put in the stock motor but i have no idea as to how I would even start. Thank you for your time.

The simplest swap would be to find a 200hp 2.5L V-6 from an SVT Contour. If you want more power, people have used a 3.0L Duratec out of a Taurus and added the SVT-specific components to it. There are forums online specific to these engines where you can find a lot of information about what options (including turbos) are feasible for your car.
