Why not use this as a chance to upgrade and go with a 3v or 4v?

How did you blow it? Rod? If the heads/intake is still good you can get any 4.6L or 5.4L short block that you want and toss em on. Heck, you could get a Teksid from a Mark VIII and slap your heads on it.

Otherwise, yes, you can get it out of a crown vic and just swap your intake over, just make sure that it's a PI engine, otherwise you will suffer major power loss.

You could find a Mark VIII motor for around the same price as a vic or marque motor.
