Ok Fellow stang lovers I have an issue with the motor in my 2002 GT. It is a late 2002 production so all my stuff comes up 2003 when computer is scanned. I have a rod knock in my original 4.6 engine. I purchased a motor off ebay that stated it was out of a 2002 GT with 82,420 miles which should be a romeo engine like the one in my car. I picked up my engine from fedex today and when I got home and took it out of the crate it is dated 03/09/99 and has the 13/14 bolt windsor heads and a W on the block meaning its a windsor motor. My question is will this engine bolt up to my 02 and is it worth it? Should I wait for the correct romeo engine? I am very frustrated and don't want to make the wrong decision and put the wrong one in my car.
