I got a 4.6 DOHC out of a 2001 lincoln continental for free, its one of those gay ass FWD cars. It is all aluminum, both the block and the heads are. I was looking at the bell housing on the engine and it looks to small to go in a mustang. Will the heads or the block work on a mustang?

I got it from my friend that works at a dealership and he said it was FWD.

if it came from a Lincoln Continental, it's a FWD block. it has different coolant flow, extra bosses for engine mounts and a different bellhousing pattern. you can't bolt a RWD tranny up to it, at least as far as i know...

I think Lincoln Continental's are RWD but I could be wrong.
