Knowing the vehicle this transplant is going into would shed some light on some of my issues I face, but only partially since I am sure that this transplant has never been done. I do understand that measurements will need to be taken either for fitment and/or possible extensions etc for shifter location. There is also engine harness integration involved, which I am assessing. I am getting well informed of all the hurdles. But, there are many reasons why I am not upfront with the vehicle this is going into, and it has more to do with me, and my approach to this project. Trust me it has nothing to do with anyone and their expertise on this forum, or any others for that matter. Just know the vehicle is part of the Ford family but not badged as such. Swap kits are available for a 5.0 L transplant but I am vain for technology, and so that is the reason for the 4.6 DOHC.
Adam, and fellow enthusiasts, all I really want to know is, can a t-45 or t-56 be adapted, bolted and fitted to a DOHC 4.6 from a Mark VIII? If so, is there a kit and/or what parts do I need, what is involved? Does anyone here have these details or is there a site/post you can direct me to. I ask, because I don’t know and I seemed to have read, some time back, that it is not a direct fit due to crank bolt pattern and bellhousing which, as far as I am concerned, could be overcome but at what cost? If it is a direct fit, than great, that issue can be checked off my list and I can focus on resolving all the others. First though I really need to know and answer that detail... that is the first door to my project. Does that make more sense?
Thanks to all that can help.
