4.6 Rebuild Kit

I have a 2000 mustang gt auto and a 2003 cobra, i am rebuilding the 4.6 motor..... i found a rebuild kit from summit... 4.6.... but it shows its for 95-98 vehicles...its a SOHC 4.6 kit.... will this work for a 2000 4.6?

Federal Mogul 205-6382M000 - Federal Mogul Engine Re-Ring Kits - Overview - SummitRacing.com

What do you think... does anyone know where else I can buy the kit?
Thanks for the help!

thats wierd id give the tecks a call and see what they say, the 95's i thought were 5.0's.. are you getting new pistons? and are you boaring the motor? or just replaceing seals? i wouldn't buy anything till you get into the motor you might buy that kit find you have a gash in the piston wall and have to boar out .10 .

cams, and all basic bolt ons, arizen seats, cowl hood, and now my buckets got a hole in it (meaning im broke) but when i fix it ill have gears and some trany work

The 4.6 was out long before it made it into the Mustang, but yes, 95 Mustangs had the 302. That kit isn't a rebuild kit, it will be using the stock pistons, rods, crank, unless you toasted rings and are trying to bandaid it for the time being, get a REBUILD kit that has forged pistons, rods, cranck and all the other parts for a full rebuild. You need to talk to a machine shop before ordering anything anyway.
