    I have been shopping around trying to consider what I want to do with my car. Since it was my first Mustang I am going to keep it and motor swap it. I was looking online and have found salvage yards with the 4.6 liter engines for a little over a thousand dollars. However I know if I bought one of those I would want to rebuild it anyways with forged internals so I could put a Supercharger on it.

    Then I began looking for 4.6 liter blocks and came across two versions. One of the Romeo and the other is the Windsor. So my question is... what is the difference and what were each of them used in?

    Once I pick out a block what sequence of parts should I look into buying and installing? I have a few friends who can help me but it's 2A.M. and they are in bed. Whoever can help I appreciate it.

    EDIT: I am from Michigan and can't believe I kept typing rodeo. I guess that is what happens at 2A.M.

    So Mustangs used both motors but what Mustangs used what? I am assuming the Mach 1 used one motor and the GT used the other. The Cobras used different blocks all together.

    This is currently the plan I have. Obviously I need to plan out a lot more but I think this is a good start.

    Livernois Romeo 4.6 block = $399.99
    Livernois Rotating Assembly = $2195.00
    Livernois 4.6 L 2v Billet Camshaft L114(459KIT4-2V/4VB) = $499.99
    Patriot Romeo Stage II Heads(1004R) = $1,395.00

    With this set-up it will be running a 9:1 compression. So then when I get an SC or Turbo I will be hooked up.
