hi. ive got a '90 4.6 liter mustang, and im going to pull out that engine and sell it, and i want to swap it for either a direct replacement 5.0 or a 351 windsor...are either of these thoughts realistic/possible? If so, which engine would be a better choice...i know carbureted engines, so that's not an issue, but how much work will it be to put the windsor in..how much would i need to replace/buy, etc...?? Which engine will ultimately put out more power?


thanks,


Tom/

If your '90 Fox has a 4.6, somebody had to swap it out.  That year should be a 5.0.  I'd stick with 5.0 for that year since all the brackets and motormounts are made for that.  351 is possible with A LOT of work.
