im not too sure but i would like to find out
i know that the 4.6 triton and the 5.4 triton are both stand alone
i might be leaning toward the fact that the tritons are all 90 deg v8s
but i dont know about the ones they put in cars
dang i really want to find out now its bugging me

hahaha nevermind the post^
i told you i wanted to find out bad! haha
the 4.6l in the cars is a modular engine... the TRITON line came when they decided to put modular engines in trucks!
the car 4.6 and the TRITON 4.6 are not completely interchangable!!!

The 4.6 Triton also has the tall intake that is designed to make more torque.
