If you're short on cash, then going 4v should be out of the question. A direct replacement engine (99 or 00 only in your case because you have a Windsor engine) run about 700-900 bucks here in Los Angeles. I can't imagine being more expensive where you live.

ya if money is a worrie, forget about power and just get her going again. what is wrong with the motor? Can you rebiuld the stocker? Start callin around to junk yards and if money is really a big deal maybe you can find a NPI motor for around 500 or so..

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

I wouldnt waste my time getting one out of a junkyard, because you have no idea what you are getting and since you have some aftermarket parts on it, im sure you will be in the same position you are now before long. Id yank that motor out and rebuild it man. Im doing the same thing in my 99. Im rebuilding the whole thing myself and its not that bad. Mine was messed up bigtime too.

Call Eddyson Enterprises in Miami (305) 638-5534, they are heaven for mustang parts... or call Mustang Specialties in pompano, fl, ask for John, I think I recall him saying he had one.

?

I have a similar problem and would like to hear some input from people on here.

My engine (97 4.6L GT - 2V, NPI) has a knock in it. Two mechanics believe it to be a rod knock - I believe this implies my pin to be bad and if conitued to drive on it can lead to throwing a rod.

I've been scouring the forum's and the internet for days now trying to figure out the balance between the economics of getting my engine running and taking advantage to make any mods that I can.

Here are the options I've seen and would like comments on:
  • Crate engine (long block) delivered for $1550 w/approx. 55,000 miles on it. Same engine.
  • Tear down engine and replace rods/pins (maybe Hurley but not sure if I want to spend the $600+ on them v. a production set for under $200.
    • would also upgrade to the PI Intake manifold (IM) for approx. $175
    • Possibly a new camshaft at the same time if I can locate one for a reasonable price
  • Buy a new ALUM 4.6L small block - $950 shipped while also upgrading to the PI IM and installing new rods
Regardless of either of the 3 options I'll be installing the Lock-N-Stitch spark plug insert kit while replacing the plugs/wires.

If I can squeeze enough $ into the build i'm open to suggestions on upgrades.

would love to hear feedback on any experiences or comments on my options that i've been putting together.

thanks
