    Alright so here is the begining of my tearing aprart the motor and building it for the last time. I missed alot of things last time and feel i have damaged things internaly. But only one way to find out and it tearing it apart and looking. the block was in great condition and if everything is still good I am going to keep the shortblock of this 4.6l So Lets all hope things go well. Enjoy the pics and if any of you have any questions on something i am doing feel free to ask. I hope to have this done in 3 months tops depending on the routes i go.

    If someone could make this a sticky I would happy!!!

    SO here is what i have done so far.

    I have taken my front strut bar out.
    K&n Intake is off
    Vaccums lines ar off
    Coil packs and wires are off
