Default Will the 4.9 Inline fit into 04?

Considering the swap. I liked the engine in the F150 I had a few years ago.

Just want to know if it will fit?

Has it been done?

What kind of problems will I come into while going through the process?

Just rollin the idea around at the moment. I have no idea if I'm going to go ahead with it. Any insight is appreciated.
Thanks

The issues you will have are ROOM or CLEARANCES. I have seen guys replacing it with the 5.0 coyote motor (Mustang). I personally do like the F150 engines (TRITON). Where the head have very thin threads for the spark plugs or spark plugs welded itself onto the head.

If stupid ideas like this are rolling around in your head maybe you should run for a seat in congress.

maybe if you move the radiator a few feet forward...

a 302 is smaller, basicly a cube, it fits inside a ranger if you push the radiator forward a little, and has more power
