Headlight conversion/engine question

Can you convert headlights from a '03-present Marauder to a '99-'2002 Ford Crown Vic P71?Does the Marauder have the same engine as a Crown Vic?

The CV (including PI) has a SOHC (Single OverHead Cam) motor (one cam on each head), while the Marauder has a DOHC (Dual OverHead Cam) motor (two cams on each head).

What about the headlights,can they be switched out and replaced with Marauder headlights?

I think so ,but, if you look at them you'll see that they're not much difference at all. Aside from the grill, there's not anything different from the CV(cosmetically)

Just get a Marauder. Aren't you researching to get a CV? Just get a Marauder. They're much more bad ass out of the box.

Re: Headlight conversion/engine question

I have to agree that the marauder is much better out of the box but the $5k for a great condition CVPI and the 20k+ for a Marauder is something to think about too. Not everybody has money pouring out of their backside. Anyways, to swap out the headlights you need alot more then just the headlights. The corner lenses are more of less a direct swap but for the headlights you need the following: Headlights, front light support (big panel behind the lights), the center grill cause your CV one will not fit, and what ever nuts and bolts to finish it up.

Will it fit on a CV, yes. It's something I'm mdoing right now. I'll have a marauder, just with Ford badges and a SOHC 4.6. But not for long, I'm going bigger.
