Stock 4.6 pi>5.0>4.6 non pi
I can agree with that. But if you're going to do any decent modding and don't want to go broke, then I'd switch it up to 5.0 (up to 1995) > 4.6 PI ( 1999+) > 4.6 non-PI (1996 - 1998)

The non pi Mustangs are such an embarassment, I hope Ford feels ashamed of producing them

dif heads and intake they put on 99+ mustangs which made them perform much better. Performance or power improvement it stands for. Thats why 96-98 gt mustangs have 225 hp and 99 to 04 2 valves have 260.
