Im getting ready to buy an 04 mustang mach1 with m/t that has a blown motor.  I can get a motor from  a police car with 4.6l.  i would like to know if the trans will bolt up to it and will i have to change flywheel.  Should i take head and intake from the old one and put on new one. Is their any thing else i should know. Or what ngines would be better.

there are a bunch of different 4.6 motors..

its not really if it will bolt it...

its is it the same motor so the electronics and fuel controls will all work

there are 2, 3 and 4 valve 4.6L motors..

i don't know enough about the differences in these... but other forum members will ..

please post the 8th digit of the vin number of the new mustang...

then you can decipher which motor will fit..

actually anything can be installed.. its just the thousands of dollars to hook up and make one thats different run properly...
