    Swap in a mark8 4v or 2vexploder?

    Get the mark8 short block and the exploder pi heads. Bolt them together and then do your swap.

    Yes it will swap. Might want to use your front cover, valve covers, intake..etc.

    The intakes are the same on the crown Vic but the tb plenum is dif.... use your original timing cover and lose the CV valve covers.
