    That's where I got almost all of my information,

    http://www.therangerstation.com/Maga...0/Ford_4-6.htm

    That's where I got the rest of it.

    I built the motor on a stand and bought a truck with a blown motor and replaced it so I can't really compare stock to Pi swapped. I have shorty headers, stock cats and a Flowmaster 40 series, so I wouldn't really call that an exhaust upgrade. Maybe a little better flowing, but mostly just makes more noise than stock.

    Austin, I would love to know more about the swap on our 4.6 truck what else do you really need to do this? Do you have to shave the old heads? Or can I just remove my old ones and swap them? What else we have to watch for when doing this? Did you feel a big improvement in her after the swap? Do you have a exhaust upgrade?

    Yep, mine came out of a mustang. In fact the whole motor did and I swapped over the water pump, front cover and such.

    Ok.. I got the adapters. Is the coolant pipe and alternator bracket the same as the ones for the mustang/crown vic?

    Yes and yes. And I used a and a installed in the upper radiator hose. You don't have to lengthen the connector wires, but you do have to cut open the harness so the connector will reach the sensor.

    Austin,

    Im in the middle of the PI swap. Gotta cpl questions if you don't mind. My truck is a '98. Did you have to change the coolant pipe under the lower intake and alternator bracket? Also, What method did you use to reinstall the second temp sensor? I appreciate your help with that, and anything else you can think of.

    They don't have half the horsepower of a Twisted Wedge/Comp Cams combo, but they're about 1/8 the price.
