3.8 to 4.2 swap

ok i just want some quick clarification before i dig into this project. im tryin to get more horsepower and torque on a budget. i have a '96 mustang with a burned valve so instead of fixing it i wanna upgrade to the 4.2 my plan is

'98 4.2 block
'96 3.8 oil pan, heads, intake, '01 flywheel

will this setup work? and what kinda power output is possible with this single port setup? i know split port set up would be stronger but like i said im on a budget and downtime for the car is short

96 v6 mustang: dual exhaust, 99 GT wheels
coming mods: 4.2 swap, cam, cold air intake, ported heads and lower intake
