I have a 03' CV and I wanted to swap motors with an 03 Mach 1 or a 99-01 F150 Triton. I would like to know which is better for a daily driver. I would love to use a Kenne Bell 2.3L on the F150 motor but gas prices are brutal. I just want to make a true muscle car for the streets of Philly.

Whats up Hellrazor!
I share your passion for the Panther chassis. I have a 2000 CV with a 2003 Lightning engine and TKO 5spd. You can see my car by searching for quickcrownvic on Google and Streetfire.net.
These cars are a perfect match for a 5.4. Trust me.
Your CV will be nothing more than a Marauder with a Mach 1 engine. With a 5.4, it will be way more of a muscle car than a Marauder. Keep in mind, hood clearance is a problem do to the 5.4's taller deck height. A standard 5.4 will just fit under the hood if a 4.6 intake manifold is used. You can get adapters to fit a 4.6 manifold to a 5.4.

I just watched your vids on supermotors.net. I have three(3) questions. 1.) Did you install a supercharger?
2.) Did you think about installing a custom hood?, 3.) Who did the work because I love it. I found a CV with a 6.8L V10 http://www.hotrod.com/featuredvehicles/72538_1999_ford_crown_victoria/index.html

Sir:
That's one tough CV you have. Do you know if it's possible to hook it up to an automatic tranny, such as it the stock P71 model CVs?

I know you're in Miami. I am thinking to buy this month a Crown Vic from Metro and I am considering to swap engines to a 5.4. I really like the set up you have on your CV. But, I don't know if the regular transm would work with the 5.4 engine. Also, I've been reading some sites and I've found they state the 5.4 engine won't fit.
please, help! thanks
