Why do you need a 2001 engine, they came in both the Cobra and the Continental that year. I would say the chances of finding one of those in a junk yard totalled with the engine still intact is pretty slim, but you never know.

yes mustang66, that's why I'm confused. Does he want an actual 2001 engine out of a 2001 car, or does he want a new engine for his 2001 car? Looks like he's from Europe I think, it says UK on his address. Maybe you can't buy certain stuff over there. I just don't know? <img src="confused.gif" border="0">

yeah, good point. Can you even buy old stuff from a ford dealership or just new stuff? They also have different power ratings too. (mustang vs. continental) hmm this is a tuff one

You might be best off buying a complete car that was hit from behind and written off. Have the engine pulled and crated and then shipped off to you in the UK, I'm sure that some wrecker online might have what you are looking for if you are patient. They might even be willing to crate it up for you, for a fee.

why even bother with the 4.6.? if you're in the market for a newer ford engine get your hands on a 1995 5.0 litre. it's fuel injected and very fast (camaro was faster!!!!!!!!!). if you do indeed live in europe it's going to cost you an arm and a leg to ship it. check with your euro ford dealerships, they might be able to help ya out.

Ford had the only DOHC 4.6 V-8 that I know of. This engine ran for several years. My Ma's '94 Crown Vic has one of these engines. I also believe that it is the same as newer engines (physicaly). Cadillac currently uses 4.1,4.5,and 4.9 engines.all V-8s(sidewinders)the Ford engine should be fairly available at most latemodel yards.

Actually the Crown Vic only came with a 4.6 SOHC engine, not the same thing. I think Ford is actually coming out with a high performance Grand Marquis called the Marauder, but I don't know if that will be a SOHC or DOHC 4.6. The only 4.6 DOHC applications that I know of are the Cobras, Continentals, And I'm not sure about the supercharged Lightning F-150.

The Marauder will have a 300hp 4.6 DOHC. The lightings have a supercharged SOHC 5.4, the same thing as a 4.6 only with a longer stroke. Very similar to the 302 and 351. You could find a DOHC 5.4 in a Lincoln Navigator amd Cobra R if you want something bigger. But crown vics, towncars, and grand marquis all have SOHC 4.6s

I have a cousin-in-law that had a 4.6 in his Expedition. SOHC or DOHC, I don't know, but the more important question is why oh why would you put a 4.6 in a big 4X4 vehicle like this??? I just don't get it. He ended up taking my advice and ditching it for a Z-71 truck!!!

You know Zach I kind of agree. I always felt the bigger SUV's should only have the 5.4 in them since Ford has pretty much abandonned the OHV big block. They offer a V-10 in the F-series trucks but I haven't seen any in Expeditions or Navigators. So unless you can handle the expense of a diesel you're only getting so much power.

I stand corrected, ma's vicky is a sohc (1 per head,got confused)but then I'm not a ford man. but in defense of the smaller engines, like is found in expeditions. the auto industry has finally gotten off its dead backside and started applyin some science to engine buildin and are makin the engines more powerful and efficient

Even if that is true (I'm still not convinced that their 5.4 is more efficient and powerful than the 5.7...) isn't Ford still the company that got in all the deep crap about over estimating the horses on the Cobras the one year???

this doesn't apply to the question but had to say it, always have to bring it up.

Drag racing a junk yard queen in 1988, pulled up opened the hood to check for cheaters before racing, all I heard for 3 weeks straight DOHIC what the hells a DOHIC? Helerious after I lead them by a car length

:cool:
