Default 02 Ranger edge 3.0 slow to explorer 5.0 or other v8

Im looking to get more hp into my ranger. I checked out the ranger station and got some info but im still confused on what V8 would be the easiest swap. I was thinking of an explorer 5.0. My truck is a 2wd automatic and id like to keep it that way. Any suggestions and help is appreciated?

I'm pretty sure the expo 5.0 is the easiest v8 swap. The show trucks is doing a 4v 4.6 swap, they seem to make that look easy.
