    I assume you mean adapters to run the 4.6 intake on a 5.4 in a Mustang? Not many do, there are exhaust fitment issues and you have to modify the oil pan baffles, heater hoses etc. But a new edge Stang went from 205rwhp @ 4750rpm with a 4.6 to 226rwhp @4600 with the 5.4. The torque is the big gainer...went from 254rwtq at 3750rpm to 330rwtq @ 2500rpm :eek:

    It was actually down on power and torque compared to the 4.6 by 5700rpms though.

    Hope this helped some.

    NICE, thats what i'm looking for is the killer torque. Might even look at the lightning or kb supercharger. got to love the torque. man that is awsome. and it might look like a stock 4.6 too. lol


    also, i looked at the site and those are 4v adapters.

    I don't work for eBay I just search alot for used Subaru parts for the
    customers at my Subaru shop.I come across alot of different things on
    there and I was just trying to help you out.
    I belive you will have to conform to the 5.4L exhaust.

    so i could leave the frpp shorties on and just extend the mid pipe up a little further? if so that should be easy, my exaust dude could probably do it on the cheap. thanks

    Drop top, it shouldn't be that much more. just a couple inches of iron and a little longer rod, thats about it i think. maybe 30 or so pounds. not to much

    Droptop, i called and emailed and both times they told me they never carried addapter plates for the motor........ i don't get it. if they can do a 4v why not a 2v.

    Both basically stock(KN filter, flowmasters) the 4.6 was untuned, and those numbers are the 5.4 tuned, so they wrenched every hp out of it I am sure.
    The 4.6 have no torque to begin with, then you have an extra 30 cubes with a longer stroke, its gonna bury the smaller engine in torque. I have seen a Stang with a V10 swapped in, now that was TORQUE... ;)
