In. You can use the oil pan/pickup tube from the 95 when you pull it. You may have an issue using the 4.6 ECU, the 4.6 has two cams, and IIRC two cam sensors, one for each cam. Also, going boosted, as you know, you will need to tune it since it'll he OBD2, you can remove the auto trans with the tune...

You think it would be easier to stay OBDI? Or maybe I'll throw it all out and go carb lol. There's an F150 at Glisson's with a 4 barrel intake.

I'd go completely ex 5.0 ignition system. It will solve your dizzy clearance problem, solve your driveability issue, and has less components. When you get a tune (you know your getting one, its only a matter of time) it will be easier since you won't have mix-matched parts. I've been thinking of doing cop, but it would make mounting with headers difficult...

I can run coil packs with an OBDI setup. Maybe I should just do that, since it was my original plan. Just wish I knew what was causing my problems now so I'm not running into them again with the new motor.

That's why i suggest the ex system, its more advanced. As far as tuning you can use a wideband and tune it from there til you get a handheld...

Not really looking to spend several hundred in tuning again.

Let me weigh my options and see if I can figure out what my current problem is.

When you boost, you need to tune so you don't blow the motor, you know that. You can do basic tuning yourself with the wideband, adjusting fuel pressure, different injectors, and bigger maf/tb/air filter...
