Need help identifying engine year. - 2 Weeks Ago

Hello everyone, my name is Mike and I'm going to be doing an engine swap on my 2006 Mustang from a 4.0L to 4.6L. I just need help identifying the motor I purchased. I was told it's from a 2007 but would like to confirm that. It's going into my 2006 and I have a harness and computer from a 2006 if I need to install it. I also need a suggestion on the cooling system. Should I go with a 2007+ setup or the 2005/2006 setup? Is one system better than the other?

Looking to install a tubular K-Member and an On3 Turbo system (already purchased). Can anyone recommend a good tubular K member? I was leaning towards the BMR one.

Just a few more pictures of various serial numbers I found on the motor and transmission.

This article from Mustang 360 website may be of some help. At the very bottom of the article is a chart with block casting numbers. Ford had issues with the two piece spark plugs breaking in the cylinder heads during plug removal. They solved the issue in 2008-9 with a one piece spark plug. If the engine that you bought has the two piece plugs with a long un-threaded section of the plug body then you have a 2005-07 engine.

Thanks. I'll check the plug types and look for casting numbers.
