The replacement for the Windsor family of Ford V8 engines, the 4.6-liter Ford engine was introduced for the 1991 Lincoln Town Car and has subsequently gone on to become one of the foremost performance engines in modern times. As buy-in prices for Mustangs tumble, you might want to raise the performance of your 4.6-liter Ford engine to another threshold.

Famed engine-builder and tuner Sean Hyland offers complete insight into the building and modification of Ford's 2- and 4-valve 4.6/5.4-liter engines in the CarTech volume How To Build Max-Performance 4.6-Liter Ford Engines.

Sean Hyland Motorsport has built more than 200 4.6 performance engines each year. Those engines include the one John Mihovitz used in his drag racer with a Mercury Cougar body that has run 6.94 seconds at 202 mph in the quarter mile. Hyland's drew also built the naturally aspirated 5.2-liter stroker that propelled Joe Hutchins's Pro Mod Cobra to a quarter-mile time of 9.9 seconds at 135 mph.

Hyland's 4.6 guidebook offers an outline of eight power packages that are highly recommended. You also get instructions on the buildup of the 405-hp naturally aspirated Cobra engine, step by step. Learn about block selection, crankshaft prep, cylinder head and intake manifold modifications in this 4.6 guide book.  The volume will also help you shop for high-performance Ford 4.6L engines.
