(the 5.0 throttle body is smaller than the I6)

You can put a windsor throttle body on a 4L, however not a straight bolt on job, you need a custom spacer and the way the throttle cable bolts on is different as well.
An AU 5L throttle body is slightly bigger than the I6, there are also cheap aftermarket larger throttle bodies for the Windsors.
