No, that 10 4.6 will NOT work. Your options are very limited, IIRC only a 98 or 99 will fit your car.

I had a 98 that had the headgasket issue. I got a guy to install head studs that he designed and installs. He did it all for $1100 installed, including pulling the engine.
I had an STS Seville with the 300hp engine, the SLS got the 275hp engine which has differnt cams.

His name is Jake, and he runs Northstar Performance. Search that title.
