DOHC swap accessories questions

When I move the 4.6 dohc from the 94 mark viii to the 94 bird do all accessories from the dohc get used? Is the ac compressor the same? Radiator hose locations the same? Engine mounts?

Radiator is the same despite the convoluted thermostat/bypass hose routing of the 4V, as is the AC compressor but the line routing is slightly different for intake tube clearance - you may or may not have any issue there - motor mounts are identical as well. Main differences you want to carry over are the coolant hoses to the radiator and heater core, they plug into the same cores but obviously the routing is way different.

Your going to also need a cobra coolant cross over if you want your temp guage to read correctly. Or ive seen people put in a pipe in the upper rad hose and tap it and install the sensor in that. Ghetto,but it worked.
