Default 2.3 to 3.0/4.0?

Has anyone pulled this off? Just curious mostly, that and my last two rangers were v6/ 5 speeds.

Obvious I'd need the computer, harness, motor. Will 4cyl trans bolt up?

Thanks in advance

To the best of my knowledge, it won't bolt up.

If you want to do the swap, try to find a donor that has as much of what you will need as possible, in the best condition possible.
When I was looking for an Explorer to swap into my B2, I missed out by 10 minutes on a 93 Sport that had 54000 miles and supposedly needed a clutch for $300, a few weeks later I picked up a 92 XLT for $400.
