No more engine swap

Ok, heres an update. I know I said in another thread I was gonna do a 3.8 to 5.0 swap, but after doing a lot of research, I decided against it. Gonna cost way to much to mod the car to get the.engine to fit. To many problems that I ran into, especially not knowing the exact year of the engine. I even asked the guy 10 or so times a day for about 3 days and he never would tell me. His loss I guess. Now I am looking for a 99-04 4.7L block only. That should just drop right in. At least with that, all I would have to do is beef up the tranny and rear end. Any comments?
