    Differences between a 351-W & 4.6


    I ran across a totalled 95 T-Bird today that has the 4.6 v-8,with an AOD trans. I have a 53' Studebaker coupe with a 351-W and AOD in it now. Im thinking this might be a nice upgrade to the ole Stude.
    Do they make a rear sump pan for the 4.6 ? I would need a rear sump pan to clear the front cross memeber.
    Does anyone have the physical demensions of both these engines so I can compare them?
    Are there any differences in motor mount location? The 351-W has the side mounts. I was told some 4.6 had a front motor mount.
    Any help would be appreciated.

    im not sure about the sump pan and things but coming from a 96. you would have engine codes maf sensors ECU's fuel injection ect.. i dont know if you can swap a cam and throw on a carb ... Sounds Sick though give it a shot.

    anyways i would have to imagine 4x4 f150s would have a rear sump pan.

    check out www.yearone.com they did a 66 mustang 4.6 with 6speed conversion... i'm sure you can email them and ask for more information if they dont have everything you need... the sensors is only a semi issue... only one is located out of the motor and thats the o2, you just hafta install it into your exhaust pipe... as for the computer... they make one for about $100 that can be setup and plugged into a laptop to configure all the settings in the 4.6.... and motormounts... they make special ones to mount up to old ford style motor mount brackets like what you've got put in your stud.... check out www.laurelmountainmustang.com for help with those... most of the help your gonna be getting for this swap is from mustang guys... theres a few 66 mustangs running 4.6s and i have a feeling you'll see quite a few more around in the near future

    Check out the Ford Racing catalog, they have some nice 4.6 goodies in there, including the DOHC heads. I sure would like to try one of these motors in a rod, seems the performance potential is certainly there.
