so i was right the 4.6 was based on the yami v8 including mounting points just alittle bigger
i can make it work





but would i want to open that can of worms with "Christine"
if i dont get rid of her it may be an option

im sure i can get an extra grand for the build just from her motor

and just because im on the subject of being stupid i also believe i could bolt a newer like 05 or 02 body style front clip on

i believe that ford just changed sheet metal looks not actual hard body and frame

That's been done too. Rad support, headlights, bumper, grille, fenders, hood

You can bolt on almost anything from a gen3 to a gen4. Interior included, at least to an extent. You would have to match all panels to make it look right.

The 4.3 is no where related to the 4.6 FYI. It has more in common with Cobra and Mustang motors then anything else.

A SHO has been dropped in a Gen4.

A V8 SHO has been mated to an MTX at least twice.

It will not fit in a Taurus and be operational with out damaging some thing or melting things all over.

Big C faker just set i tin the car and snapped off a photo before he sold the body and 4.6. never had it hooked up, never started it in the car, never had it on the road.
To my knowledge, to date.. .no one has ever put a 4.6L in a Taurus ( that is to say they haven't done it with out serious modifications any way. I am sure some dip shiat has done it with heavy tube mods for the strip but not as stated as a direct bolt in for the street. Why in the hell any one in their right mind would build a 4.6L for bracket or any thing else is beyond me but I guess they do LOL! *I HATE the 4.6* )

Why be such a negative nancy. You do not know with 100% certainty that it will not work.
