5.0 guys--please help

Ive just purchased an unmolested 93 lx 5.0 from a good friend. It has 170k on it , but running fine for its age. I also have a 5.0 engine sitting in the garage, but its from a 95 model. I would like to put in on a stand and start a rebuild, but im not sure it will drop right into the 93. Or if it will, what will be needed to make it work. Is the 95 5.o block identical to the 93 5.0??? I know the intake is different. If the blocks are the same, i would just transfer all of the intake and electrical to the 95. wonder if ill have to modify the motor mounts? would imagine so. Any thoughts ?

The block/heads are identical from that year....but the intake inlet has a bent elbow shape to it that is specific to the SN95 (94-95) mustang. All you need is the upper intake from the donor motor. Also check the asse. belt configuration. I am not sure about that, but it should be the same.

94-95 have unique intake and accessory drives. The engine is the same. Both have hypereutectic pistons.

If it has had reasonable care, you might not have to bore it. I have freshened 3 with over 100,000 and none had more than .0005 wear to the bore and 2 did not need pistons.

Rigid hone the cylinders on a machine to break the glaze matched to the ring type, bottle brush, use good rings. Consider gapless rings.

Consider an aluminum head upgrade and 1.7 Cobra rocker arms with the stock cam. Sell the old engine assembly to offset the head cost.
