engine conversion for Disco 2

I need a new engine for my 2000 Disco 2 and I would like to drop in a 4.6L. Will any of the 4.6L fit? Is the Range Rover 4.6 the same as the 2004 Disco 4.6? What are the issues of a conversion?

The only issues you will need to be concerned with are with the heads and if they have the secondary air or not. The rest is a straight drop in as long as you use the same type front cover and reuse your air/fuel management. In otherwords, no issues if using a short block, possible head issues if using a long block, and coordination issues on air/fuel if using a complete engine with different engine management.
