Difference between 04 and 05+ 5.4 3V's?

I have found an '06 5.4L 3V out of an Expedition with low miles I'd like to swap into my '04.

What changes did Ford make after 04 (non-heritage)? I think I've read about an intake mani change (TB placment), but that's it.

Any input would be great!

There is no mechanical difference on the 3V 5.4's no matter the year. There might be a difference between body lines, i.e. the intake manifold and/or the exhaust manifolds might be different between the expy and the 150. If they are diff, just swap on your manifolds off your 04 engine. You should not have a problem with this swap, afterall the expy and 150 are practically identical mechanically.

That's what I was thinking.

Though, on www.car-parts.com and other sources list 04's seperate from the 05+ non-flex fuel engines. I'm guessing it's the mani change.....

Even if the mani is different, I wouldn't worry about it. If your going thru the trouble of swapping engines, then swapping out the mani to get the correct one is nothing, just a couple more bolts. Besides, I think you have to pull the intake to gain clearence to get the motor out without lifting the cab off the frame.
