looks like a standard 2v motor to me...nothing really special about it even if it came out of a police interceptor except that motor has been beaten to hell in a long life

More than likely came from a crown Vic. It should fit. Depending on what car you're planning on fitting it in you will probably have to beef up the suspension/brakes a bit

And like slo said. It's a police engine, those things are Most likely beat down due to a police cars nature.

Nothing different about them except they run a bigger torque converter and flywheel is different than regular crown Vic the computer tune is only other thing more aggressive... If you're buying a used engine this is the last thing on earth you want to buy... I've worked on a ton of city county and state officers cars and they are treated more poorly than any vehicle on the road oil changes and regular maintenance often ignored and ran hot and wot nonstop

Completely agree. Police engines are the worst to buy. Police officers don't really care to maintain the engine and they are serviced only when needed.

It's a 2000. I don't think they used Taurus's in that year. More than likely its a crown Vic. Plus, once they retire the police cars they go to taxi companies or sold at auction

Kinda off topic
Has any one seen the episode of Fast and Loud where they put a 4.6 in a old Ford truck? The master mechanic Aaron Kaufmann says it will be 5 or 6 wires to fire this truck up, LOL. Twenty minutes later wires are every where and he is cranking over and over again. I laughed and felt bad for Joey, who wrote this thread.

wiring harness
