2003 Explorer Engine

I have a 2003 4.6 engine with an aluminum block. The engine has approximately 60k miles runs with no issue. It was installed in a Thunderbird that ran and drove perfectly before I parted it out. I had planned to install this in my car with a supercharger but got a good deal on another engine.

This engine started as a 2003 Explorer / Mountaineer engine that has had the front cover swapped to give the correct belt routing for Mustang, Thunderbird, Cougar, Crown Vic, and Grand Marquis. It has had Comp Cams valve springs installed. The front cover, plenum, and thermostat housing have been powder coated red. It is setup to run in a Thunderbird/Cougar with a nice, rust free oil pan and exhaust manifolds that have had the ridge removed from inside the collector to improve flow. The intake is the original all plastic piece with no rear heater core nipple.

Only the 02-05 Explorer and Mountaineer got the aluminum block with the 2V heads. The aluminum block saves around 80 pounds over the iron block normally found in these cars.

It is rare to find these motors with this low of mileage. I am asking $900/obo for the engine as it sits from intake to oil pan. I have an updated intake manifold with aluminum crossover and rear heater core nipple that I will include for $100.

No shipping, local pick up only.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks,
Bryan

Sorry, you would have to setup any freight type shipping. I don't have a good way of transporting the engine, so you would have to pay for lift gate service from a residential address. I've used Uship in the past to get a transmission from California to Illinois with good results.

Thanks,
Bryan
