I have a 96' 4.6l bird with 166k miles. The battery and terminals and cables are new or in excellent shape, the coil packs and starter are original and the fuel pump is old as Heff.

When I turn the key it goes wow wow wow wow for 5-10 seconds and starts. As I hear it moaning I can hear electricity surging of some sort and when it starts it sounds like a jet turbine slowing down.

What sounds like it my be the issue?

What I would do is take a hammer and a steel bar and beat the hell out of the starter and see if it will start. Before I just started throwing parts at it also another thing if it the fuel pump sometime you can beat under the tank hard enough to get them to run. With bad fuel pumps they also Start high and wind down for about 5 second than a steady stream of no start.
