Might wanna ask this in the 2005+ section, dunno that anybody in here has any experience with that one.
My honest opinion though is it would be a bit of a very complicated step backward. Lots of work for a 280hp, "B" headed 4.6. I can only imagine that at a minimum, the hurdles you can anticipate would be fuel system and engine management electronics (and interfacing it with the rest of the car, like the cluster for example). A much easier and more cost effective swap would be a 3V 4.6.
