4.6L 3v truck/mustang comparison

Is the only difference between these motors the block material (aluminum vs steel), or is there more to it than that?

the cams are different. The powerbands are different.

Intake, Cams, Tune and entirely different powerband. Not to mention that the truck engine is rated a 292hp/320trq and the Mustang is rated at 300hp/320trq.

it means with the truck motor its got a bit more lower end grunt but the peak hp isnt as good (not by much) its designed for towing where the stang motor is all about the hp

it wont effect the install of the motor just effects the performance of it.... you can change all that with block work and head work theres a ton of info on the 4.6/5.4 for hp upgrades on the net there a good performer when done right

Yeah, Ive been reading about it, but lots of the info is for the 2v version, and apparently the parts compatibility is bad on these motors.

Is the aluminum block just to save weight?
