Question 4.6 DOHC question

First off Tonight I go help a friend work on an old chassis dyno well at this shop there are several 4.6 and 5.4L engines sitting around. So I look around and spot a complete aluminum block DOHC modular engine and ask him if he wanted to get rid of it, Well he just gives it to me saying he doesnt want or have any use for it(chevy guy). So who can tell me about this thing, I have no modular engine experience at all. I have thought about putting it in one of my mustangs, I have an 89 5.0 LX hatch that is awaiting a 408 and a 95GT that is awaiting an S trim. Any thoughts? And is it worth the trouble.

Take it and run...

I think the DOHC 4.6 engine is really slick. Take it and run... then figure out if you can put it in one of your cars or trucks. It is so smooth and when it hits its power band (about 2800 rpm) it still has four thousand rpm to go. The other day I floored it in first (for the first time) it accelerated so fast that I was on the speed limiter and did not recognize it for a split second... wow... like double wow.

Try it, you'll like it!

For FREE?!?! Take it and ask him if he wants you to take a 5.4 off his hands, especially if it's a DOHC.

Thanks for the replys
What computer is the best to run on this thing? Like I stated earlier I am a Windsor guy and have no clue about the modulars. Also what differences between years were there?
