Ok, so its not quite as simple as it seems. Tomorrow I'm going to pick up a 97' GT for a grand total of: Free!
Fair-good shape and seems to run fairly well, aside from a little jerkiness before it warms up.

However, the engine has been swapped due to a spun bearing. The engine is supposedly out of a lincoln and supposedly makes more power. I only drove it in a parking lot before the swap and cant really confirm that it has more power, It seems a bit sluggish to me. The problem is I don't know what lincoln it came out of or what year it is. I could really use some help identifying the engine, The throttle body and possibly the intake are still from the original engine, so those won't help me identify it.

A picture would really help us identify it. Info on a motor doesn't help as the seller could be blowing smoke up your pipe. Could be a 4.6 4 valve car though.
