Hey guys im new to the forum. Has the title says im the lucky owner of a 2001 Ford Taurus with a 4.6L power plant. It also has:
- sho front and rear sway bars
- eibach lowering springs
- custom control arms,
- custom 3 inch dynomax exhaust,
- 98 continental block and manifold
- custom fitted 18 inch 1000 Meglia Evo 5

Nice job. That would make do for a good write up.

That must have taken some kind of engineering to shoehorn that in there. .
What was the stock power train?

The 60 degree FWD V8 SHO barely fits in the engine bay, I'm sure the 90 degree RWD mod motor would have a "little" trouble fitting. So without pics, this thread is pointless.

I know one person did the swap, but IIRC they had issues.

FYI, the 4.6L is FWD in the Continental...

OP states "- 98 continental block and manifold". Too bad he joined after the build. We would have enjoyed a build log on it.

Sorry I didn't catch that part, I never heard of the swap but that's interesting. But still no pics to back up a pretty large claim is odd, to say the least.

No doubts, never understood why there were so many in the past. Wish you had posted back to the original thread after you did the heads. What was up with that? Would have quieted the naysayers. You could use photobucket or better yet youtube. Why the new id? Were you locked out of the old account due to changeover?
