First of all the search button works wonders. We just had a thread about this not too long ago. The windstar will ONLY work if you have split port. You have a 98 which has single port. You would have to switch over heads, intakes, and several other parts over for this to work. The split port swap would bring you to about 193 hp and with the windstar to about 200hp.

this is why i am asking, i can do all the heads and lower intake work with no problem, but i want to make sure the 99+ heads will fit the 98 block

thanks for answering though

yes the block and internals are the same. all you will need is the top end. you might wanna get them ported if youre gonna go through all the hassle.
