1994 Crown Vic

Above is a picture of My 1994 Crown Vic PI.
What I have done to it so far is rims and tires . Tires are 245 60 15 in front and 255 60 15 in rear .
It Has a 4.6 SOHC V8 engine , AODE Auto Trans, 327 gears in the rear.
It is a P71 with full cloth interior , wood trim inside , carpet not rubber mat.
Well the 94 Crown Vic PI has a BAD wrist pin knock. So I bought a rebuidable 4.6 from my old boss at First Class Auto Salvage which is from another Crown Vic PI . Did the tear down at work today . The 4.6's have tiny pistons compared to 5.0's and 5.8's. FUN time for me I love rebuilding engines.
Update on 4.6 rebuild.
Here is an update on 4.6 rebuild heads are good , crank is junk , 3 connecting rods are junk too . Man what a bummer!!!
Bought pistons , connecting rods and cams from  Ford Performance Solutions .
They had the best prices that I found , Great service too. No question was dumb to them.
Pistons are Probe Forge pistons.

As of 08/07/02
Got the rebuilt engine to run.
It seems that when I put it together I did not set timing right.
What a pain in the butt to do timing chains on a 4.6 in the car,
but I did it!!!
Engine runs great , now just have to go through break in .
