Power is equal. Both are rated at 215 HP. Both engines have proven to be quite reliable. The 4.6L will get slightly better fuel mileage. But when it comes to cheaper parts the 5.0L wins hands down. Generally speaking it takes about twice as much money to get the same amount of power out of a 4.6L as it does the 5.0L.

I run a 4.6 and its a great engine. Some friends of mine are running 5.0 and they are having problems with smog on their 95 models. Both engines have cheap mods so either way you go you can bolt on lots of upgrades

5.0 is more powerful
4.6 gets better gas mileage obviously but not barely a mile or two better
4.6 might be a little more realible and cheaper

About the same. Get a set of pi heads and pi intake for the 4.6 sohc and it will jump the hp to 260
