2000 4.6 swap to a 04 e style van motor

Ok guys hope you stang wisdom helps me here ! We have a 2000 gt stick with a puffed motor ! I have a 04 with 50,000 miles it's a Romeo and the stang is a winsor so I believe I need a fly wheel and to swap the intake. just wanting to know if there should be more surprises?. Has anyone done this type of swap ? I would rebuild but she is stuck seized and really don't want to drop all that much into it (the motor ). Thanks guys !

I bought a 2000 GT with a blown Windsor motor. Installed a 2003 Romeo from a Grand Marquis. That was 3 years and 50k miles ago. So count me as someone that has done the swap.

Very do'able. Mostly straight forward. Works best if you can place both motors side by side and transfer parts from one to the other.

2000 GT coupe (Craigslist project. Fixed. Now my DD). Windsor to Romeo swap.

Thanks wmburns I was hopping some one would reply. So all cranks have a pilot bushing hole ? No problems bolting on accessories on the front ? I read the bolts were different sizes 8mm or 10 mm this didn't cause problems ? Is yours a stick ? Trouble finding the proper fly wheel ? Sorry about all the questions just want do do this as fast as possible . Thanks again for the help

Yes. the long block can be mated to a manual or automatic. If manual, a pilot bushing is needed. If automatic, it's vital for the pilot bushing to be removed.

The difference in bolt sizes don't matter unless you are dis-assembling the motors and swapping motor parts. Keep the long blocks together.

yes. And I had to deal with adding a pilot bushing to the new motor.

No problem at all. I used car-part.com to locate a salvage yard flywheel from a 2001+ Mustang. That meant an 11" clutch was needed which was OK by me (not trying to re-use old clutch). If you want to re-use your 10.5" clutch, then get a flywheel from a 98 or older Mustang.
