a short block is the block and rotating assembly. A long block is the whole shebang.

so to swap out a short block, you need to keep the heads and intake.

the heads on a stock 94-8 won't be able to flow enough, so what you'll need are the heads for the 4.2L, then you need an upper and lower intake manifold from a 99-04 Mustang.

Shoot Pinto a PM.

Last thing you'll need is a programmer .. .

Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion. Jer 22:13, 15-17
