Help I am a real dummy when it comes to a North star 4.6 engine . I have the opportunity to purchase a 4.6 Nothstar Engine that I would use in a project sand rail . Where can I get information on what I should know about the vin# . Is there different performance 4.6 engines . What should I look for ? Any information would be helpful .
