Just so you know....5.0 Expo or Stang or Fiddy will pretty much bolt into a 98+ ranger. The SOHC Mod motor...that's a completely different story. You've never seen one have you? VERY wide engines. 2 cams in each head = wide engine.
v8 ford explorers wid the 5.0s have the same motor as the 96 to 2002 cobras (i think its 2002 but not sure) i now this becuase i have a buddy with a 96 cobra... the difference was in the intake manifold
he blew his motor up and used a late 90s model v8 explorer motor to replace it
then i helped build a fox body with the same kind of motor and after we changed the intake manifold and a few other mods the two engines looked almost exactly the same
everyone ive ever talked to about those two cars has always called em gt40 motors.... btw yes ive seen the motor.. actually theres one at my house now not sayin it will fit easily, im sayin smith performance can make anything fit
(not fussin btw)
