As the title say's I am looking to swap my old and busted 1999 npi for a 2007 PI 4.6 and looking for information about the swap since the years are significantly different.
Is there any links to a similar project? what should I look out for? Oh and mine is a Romeo V8 4.6
Thanks.

Pretty straightforward. You are going to use most of the external stuff from the '99, oil pan, exhaust manifolds, fuel rails and injectors, all of the '99 wiring and computer, and the '99 TB and plenum. Basically you will be using the '07 long block and intake. The '99 computer and harness will run the '07 engine just fine, but there would be some power to be gained by getting it tuned to take advantage of the PI engine's extra airflow. Its been done many times, but I am struggling to find a link at the moment. The closest one I can think of would be ChevyGuy, he put a '04 GMQ engine in his '96 Town Car, it ran off the stock computer but he did use a '01-'02 MAF. That was several years ago now.

I remember that one! Is there some sort of hand held tuner or would I need to do it some other way? All the ones I've found were for 05+..And I'll go out and start soaking down those exhaust bolts, those are notorious on everything for breaking.

Can I use my cam covers off my 1999?
There is a crack in the passenger side cam cover. (And they are just plain Ugly)
Edit...Yeah found out I can't...

So far I got the wiring off it, and now I'm working the exhaust studs loose, I got all but one on passenger side popped loose, I sprayed em down with pb blaster and tightened em back up...definitely don't just pull each one out thats how they break!

Use the best exhaust manifold gaskets. Subsequently replaced it will be very difficult.

I'm using new gaskets and new studs...Which will be temporary anyways since I might get a used SW exhaust headers back next summer. My town had to evacuate due to a wild fire which set the build back a few months...But I'm using the time over the winter to stock up on parts...Mostly replacement parts as the car was never maintained mechanically. I need to look into getting at least a hand held tuner so I can use my 24# injectors and make the most of the PI engine and upgrades.
