If you want to get into a project like that it would be much easier to do a 5.4 swap than go to a pushrod 302.

the stroker 5.4 have alot of problems you can stay modular and do a 302 stroker kit on your motor now.. the stroker kit cost about 2500 bucks all you gotta do it get the other stuff your gonna need. injectors, hi flow oil pump, and electric water pump

if you are that set on doing it why ask for peoples opinions....the pushrods suck compared to the 4.6....yes they are cheaper...but why would u take a perfectly good 4.6 and replace it with something that is outdated....

Cheaper if its in a fox, not cheaper initialy to put in a modular equipped car. Stick with the 4.6 man. Unleeesssss you intend to build the 5.0 and go all out with the swap then I say go for it. But swapping in a basic 5.0 in place of a 4.6 is not worth it man.

:wtfstroker 5.4, stay modular? the 5.4 is modular.the 4.6 has a long stroke as it is, if money isnt a primary concern find an aluminum block and do a big bore. make it a 302 that way and keep the stock long ass stroke. as far as worth it, that all personal.

liike doc said...unless you are going balls out and making a 500rwhp+ car...yes its worth it....but if ur not doing that and want to make a "fun street car" then its not really worth it....

Like I said, it sounds cheap but look at the cost to put it in and make it work. You will spend less money modding your 4.6 than you will just putting the 5.0 in and getting it to run right.
