I figured 4V ,teksid block?
You figured wrong.
The teksid is from the Lincoln Mark 8. It's a 4.6L 32v modular engine. The LS V8 is a 3.9L 32v Aston Martin / Jaguar V8, which in 2003 came with VVT.
From wikipedia -
The 3.9L (3934 cc) AJ30/AJ35 variant is a unique displacement used only by Ford and Lincoln and is built in Ford's Lima, OH engine plant. Bore is 86 mm (3.4 in) and stroke is 85 mm (3.3 in). The AJ35 version introduced for the 2003 model year added variable valve timing of the intake camshafts and electronic throttle control. While the block, crankshaft, pistons, and connecting rods are all unique to this displacement, many other parts are shared with the AJ-V8 engines produced in the UK by Jaguar.
Vehicles using this engine:
2000-2002 Lincoln LS, 252 hp (188 kW) 267 lb·ft (362 N·m)
2002 Ford Thunderbird, 252 hp (188 kW) 267 lb·ft (362 N·m)
2003-2006 Lincoln LS, 280 hp (209 kW) 286 lb·ft (388 N·m)
2003-2005 Ford Thunderbird, 280 hp (209 kW) 286 lb·ft (388 N·m)
Ford Forty-Nine concept
The last AJ35 was produced in March 2006 after only 3 years. Total run of AJ30/35 was nearly 250,000 units.
The transmission however, I believe is closely related and may be the same as whats found in the 05 - 10 Mustang GT automatics.

I wanna see some pics of the twin-engine Neon Ish...
This is a very similar looking setup as to what that car was. The main difference in this car is that the front transmission is a 5 spd and the rear is auto. In my friends brothers car, both were 2.4L swapped automatics.

I can't find any pictures of that car but the beginning of the video should give you a good idea as to what it looked like.
