You can pull the heads later on to port abs polish. Get a truck 5.4 some pi heads, a 5.4 intake and bolt it in. I'm serious here, it is just a ready to bolt a 5.4 back in as a 4.6. Do not go dohc, a lot more work. Stay 2v, you can make plenty of power that way.

00-04 aren't automatically dohc. The cobras and Mach 1 run dohc. I'm not sure what involves swapping to a 4.6 dohc. The 00-04 sohc will be your easiest route. Throw some cams and heads on it and you will have a fun ride

I don't want you guys to think I'm waiting your time or anything cuz I'm also doing my own research everyone u guys give me information but I hit another road bump . That 4.6 dohc is a 32 valve you guys are saying that that engine would fit in perfectly without having to change the harness or computer or mounts? Because if I can recall my original engine only pushed 215 horses these dohc engines are pushing between 275 and 320 depending on which car I get it from so I'm curious on how it could all just be plug and play

I just read this so u say a truck 2 valve 5.4 engine is my best bet no hitting the hood no modifications or nothing. And that type of engine comes off of like an explorer or so right

With the correct intake, no issues. This is how they should have built the mustang. The added torque is a blast.

The modular power plant is a better starting point than a 5.0. Keep the modular motor. The easiest way to go 5.0 would be with a donor car but it is a step down imo.

The block is the limit on a 5.0. Modular is better

I'd rather stick with the 5.0 pushrod. Tried and true aftermarket, easier to work on yourself, and it doesn't take a whole lot of money to make big power on them.

Modular s are easy to work on and there is a huge aftermarket. Been in mustangs since 96. The modular block design is far superior. This may just be because you are not comfortable with mod motors.

Probably just because I like to stick to what I know best. I've had OHC cars before, 4 cylinders, and I just found them to be a pain to work on sometimes.

There's nothing wrong with that and I don't mean to bash. I own two small block powered cars. A 93 notch and a 65 with a 347. I love an old school pushrod, modular is just better.

Didn't take it as bashing at all. To each their own!
