Swapping out 4.6L

I have a 1998 F-250LD w/the 4.6L V8 and 5-speed tranny. It has over 200,000 thousand miles on it and is flat ass tired. This is my Question I found a 1997 police crown vic w/a 4.6L also,it has right at 100K on it. Will this motor swapp out with the one in my truck. Also I heard that you have to take off the cab of my truck to replace the motor, is there any truth to this or not.

Intake is completely differant on the Vic. The rest will bolt up but I don't know if there are any design differances.

You don't have to pull the cab. Some people do because they find it faster and easier. I don't, though so I have always done it the old fashion way and it will come out fine. You will have to remove the intake in the truck and remove the radiator. I use a Rotunda engine bar to hook the hoist onto, but if you just use a chain, get it hooked as close to the engine as you can.

compared to the older trucks it sucked balls.
