Engine swap question!!

Have a question on a engine swap!!
I have a 2001 Explorer with a 5.0 engine. I'm looking at a 2004 GT mustang with a 4,6 2v engine!! I was think of a engine swap of putting the 5.0 in the mustang. But do t know if this would be a good swap!! Would the 5.0 need alot of work done to get slot of power or would just bolt ons give the engine some good power? Or is the engine have to have new cams and stuff due to it coming out of a Explorer . Or would it be best to leave the 4.6 in ??? Any advice would be helpful!!!! Thanks

Well consiering you are starting with 260hp/305tq with the 04 4.6L I would just keep that. For the time and effort I would decline. A set of bump sticks some good headers with an upgrade to TB and plentum will do you good. If you want 5.0 stroke ur 4.6 or go with a big bore. But that's money.
