I've been doing this swap for months now but that's because I wasn't prepared. I'm swapping and 02 engine into a 97. If you don't want any hassle, It would be easier to find the single port engine and just mount it on your car already.
you can avoid a lot of hassle by buying a windstar fuel rail, it uses the split port setup, with the return style system. Then you don't need the fuel tank, pump and fuel lines. I hope your not too deep into the car, cause you could just buy the windstar fuel rail and from what i've read it will make it a lot easier.
and he's actually thinking about using the '99, so he might not have to swap so much.
The fastest way I can see you getting one these cars on the rode would be too just swap the newer engine in your car, BUT take the heads and intake off of the newer engine and just use your older heads and intake.
