    Re: 4.6 N* Cylinder walls

    Your "99" engine actually sounds like a 00+. 00+ engines don't have the valve reliefs on their pistons, and basically everything won't match with the 93-99 engines. Look for the engine identification code (9 letter/digits - for example, 6XU789012) and look at the second letter. If it's X, it's a 99 engine. If it's Y, it's a 00 engine. Although there are some exceptions, since some late 99 cars came with 00 blocks. See #2.


    99 engines don't have coil cassettes but they have 4 coil packs sitting on top of the rear cam cover with 8 spark plug wires.


    00 engines have coil-on-plug design with 2 coil cassettes, front and rear. Neither 93-99 style coil packs nor spark plug wires for 00.


    Another way to tell, if your heads have the 3/5 cylinder (and 4/6 cylinder) spark plug holes separated, it's a 99. Flat tappet cam follower design for the 93-99.


    If they are connected with a place for the coil cassette spring, it's a 00. Roller cam follower design for the 00+.


    Images searched from Submariner409's albums, my personal stash, and Google.

    No. 99 and 00 are whole different engines. Cannot mix and match.

    I talked to a seller of a 99 Sts. He serted the block last year and now he has a bad rod. Too bad it's crazy expensive to gut the serted block and install new crank/rods/pistons. I see core motors for sale often. Junkyards are full of them

    that will be my next phone call
    Here's something else
    on the '96 block the heads have different exhaust ports
    one is round and the other is d shaped
    is this common, or was it just a bad day at the plant?
    thanx
