well your going to want the newest one you can but I believe that any engine from 94+ will work. Don't quote me but I believe that any engine thats doesn't have a distributor will work.

It's a ford vulcan 3.0l engine. Any vehicle with a ford vulcan will work. You can even yank one out of a Tore-*** and swap the heads.

Best candidates are probably 1998 to 2003 -- less chance of having to move as much hardware. 2001 to 2003 very good and 2002/2003 are a drop in.

I'm in the same position but due to hydrolock.
