94 Lincoln Mark VIII DOHC 4.6 into a 99 Crown Vic? Possible?

i work at a local salvage yard. we bought a 94 Mark VIII. it runs great and idles fine. looks good and everything. i have a 99 Crown Vic P71 police package. i want the DOHC motor. Can this be done without a lot of work? if it can than i will do it, but if it takes way too much than i wont. Any input anyone has about this would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance
Chris

I have never done it but someone here should have an idea. I would guess you'd have to change all the electronics too. The Mark has 2 separate coils and the P71 has one for each cylinder. I don't know if the P71 items could be installed on it.

Dual cam motor swap

I work at a junkyard and we got a 97 Lincoln Mark VIII. It runs and drives. Nothing wrong with the motor. I have a 99 Crown Vic P71. I want to do the motor swap. I heard from a Mark VIII guy that my trans will bolt up to this motor. Will it? What all am i gonna have to swap over so this will work? Thanks in advance for all help.

Merged due to similarity with previous thread. It all depends on wether your state has yearly emissions testing. If it does, then it's a no-go. Some states allow it, only if the engine installed is a newer model year. You'll at least need the engine wiring and PCM. The rest is up to you to figure out.

Re: Dual cam motor swap

well i live in florida so we dont have any emissions. and its a newer style 4.6 so it has the coil on plug instead of 2 coil packs. i just mainly wanna know if there are any tricks to this to make it as easy as possible.
