    Hey guys! There's a good chance I'm gonna need to either rebuild my current 4.6. Not sure what's wrong yet. I was thinking that if the motor is gone then I'd look into a 302. But would it work? What would I need? Would it bolt to my tranny? Thanks!

    I cant remember the guys name on here but im sure he will come in here and help you out its like 98-five 0 or something like that. Im pretty sure you would basically need a whole new harness, computer, engine, maybe tranny?, kmember. A lot more work than the rebuild on the 4.6 but not many people do it so it would be kinda cool. Honestly even though I have a 5.0 I think you would be better off puttin a 4 valve in there it would be easier.

    PI swap or a 4 valve is the only choice in my opinion.
