98 p-71 engine swap

I was wondering if anybody out there can help me out with this, I currently have a 98 p-71 with the 4.6 sohc at 148k miles, I would like to swap this motor out for another motor with less miles. Can i interchange my motor with a 4.6sohc from the same year mustang and just swap over my accessory drives and ignition system (i have the lovely coil on plug) and expect it to be able to run? Any information would help its a bit easier to find a mustang motor than a crown vic motor in syracuse with low miles.

Re: 98 p-71 engine swap

Yes you can,the block and heads are all the same ,the only differences should be the intake and the mounting points of the accessories...ie..air,power steering pump and such. At least I think the Mustang and CV are interchangeable in that year model.
