    Default 03 Explorer 4.6 for Mustang?

    Is there anything about an 03 Explorer 4.6 that would make it a better or worse choice than a Crown Vic engine? Both have pi heads Iím just wondering if one is any better than the other?

    Try to get one from a 2005 Aviator. If you can you will get the Aluminator block and also the "DC" head castings which were the final and many consider the best, production 4.6 heads and block.
