They made 4.2's from 97-08.
Shouldn't be too hard to find a complete engine and slap your intake on it.
Stock it should be close to 202hp.

One would thank that but the junlyard where I live isn't the best one out there. there's not alot of trucks there but i was looking at some stuff and the E150 vans also have the 4.2 in some of them so that will open up more of a chance to finding a motor. theres more junkyards around thats about 45 mins ride so if have to take a ride no big deal. Willn't be the frist time I've put a motor in the back my wife's PT Cruiser LMAO.

so I was looking at long tube headers and they make them for the older 3.8s and the newer ones but I can't really find any for the 1999 to 2000 Mustangs. If I got a 2001 or newer 4.2 could i use the 2001 to 2004 long tubes. I don't want to leave the exhaust stock. And when ordering parts I would need to order them for the year of the motor I pull right?

4.2 headers would be made to fit s trucks engine compartment, they won't work. Get the 01-04 headers for 3.8.

If I remember correctly the only difference for those two years is the egr bung was removed.

If that's the only difference you use a penny and form-a-gasket to block it off. My egr tube broke and that's what I did on the valve and the header.

Okay wasn't for sure the diff in the two. But wouldn't I need to keep all my EGR stuff to pass state testing? I've seen on other post about the penny to block off the EGR.

Long tube headers wouldn't pass a test in the first place.

All they do is hook up a code reader to the OBD2 port here to see if the car throws any codes. Its not has bad as out in Cali. Really just a rip off if you asked me. I've never seen a car have a smog inspection here. But would removing the EGR cause a code to pop up that would make me fail?

Yes it would cause a code, do they fail you for the P1000 code? If so you can't get a tune to pass the reading

It sucks that the county next to where I live don't have testing. LOL but North Carolina lets every county choose to do test or not to do testing. LOL. If it wasn't for the testing i would go old school has h&ll on it. LOL

If I got MIL eliminators would that make it where I could run Long tubes?

On-Board Diagnostic (OBD) Emissions Inspection

North Carolina is fighting ozone-forming emissions from gasoline-operated cars and light duty trucks. Inspections are conducted using the vehicle’s On-Board Diagnostic (OBD) system, computerized equipment installed on all new vehicles since 1996

This is what the state NCDOT website said about testing.

I'm not really sure if the P1000 code would fail here or not. I can call around and see if it dose. I know a guy that owens a shop down here ill ask him about which codes well cause a car to fail.

My county in Cali has it good compared to other counties. Only reason I haven't cut the cats is because I kinda want to sell it.

I feel you on that one. I'm form Kentucky but live in NC now. Back home they dont have any testing and you can do any swap you want to back home but down here they are picky about it. I don't want just a drag car i want to be able to drive to the drags and drive it home being that I only live 5 mins form the drag strip LOL.

So started taking aprt the motor this weekend. It was diff in need of a rebuild. There was a few gasket's that was compermised. One was a 1/4 gap in the intake gasket. The upper intake was gummed up pretty bad. thank God im doing a Windstar swap has well lol. The lower Intake is pertty bad as well but im going to drop it off and have it cleaned and maybe alil porting and polishing done but i dont know forsure yet.
whats the best way to get the oil pan out with out lifting the whole motor out of the car. I've wiggled it everyway I can thank of but its like i get right there at it but then iI can't get it to move any more.
But on a side note I'm hopfully going this weekend to get my Windstar intake and maybe new heads as well the just need the crack and pistons then the oil pan but thats nothing lol. I'll post pics of the tear down in alil bit.

So got both my heads off today. When i removed the passenger side header. I noticed that the header on that side was in deed cracked. So that explains the tick that it had to start with. But the number 5 cylinder the piston is a lot cleaner then the rest of them. Not sure why that is lol. Well I still need to pull the block out and check the crack and everything but I'm planning on the 4.2 swap and cam and a nice tune.
