You've got to be more specific... There are several varieties of each

The 90-95 5.0, or the 4.6 that's in the SN-95's

So a 4.6 2v/4v or a 5.0HO? I'd go with the 4.6 4v.

I've had two 5.0 pushrods in foxes and my 4v in my Mach 1. I'm really diggin' the 4v, but both are excellent engines. My 4v is the WAP block, so I can't do a ton of HP mods, so if you decide to go with a 4v 4.6L, get a teksid built block. This is okay for me as I didn't intend to do more than your typical bolt ons, etc.

Lowflyn's right, they are easier to work on. Also, a tad cheaper to build up too.

I can do a head/cam swap on my fox in a night...with the engine in the car. Just not possible on the 4v. The engines are really worlds apart in all ways possible.

The 2v isn't a bad platform but I would go pushrod before building a 2v.

The old school 5.0 is generally cheaper and easier to mod and make power!.. But personally I'll stick to my 4.6!.. Stock for stock and mod for mod it will outperform the old 5.0!..

Only reason I asked is because my buddies is putting a 351 Windsor and stroking it out so he is getting rid of the 1990 5.0 so I was going to put it in the 97 v6 I am going to get.

You'll prolly need a few supporting parts. Most likely a k member. Do you have a T45 or an auto tranny?

Sounds like a cool project. I think you'll be happy.
