Default 98 ranger 2002 explorer

Good evening people of the internet, today I have question about a possible swap on my 1998 Ford ranger. To be more specific it's a 1998 Ford ranger XLT stock with a 2.5l engine rwd 5speed manual and coil suspension. I have a donor engine witch is from a 2002 Ford explorer Eddie Bauer rwd with a 4.6L v8 engine 5speed automatic . Is this swap possible. Or if there any other v8 engine that would be easier to swap.any help will be greatly appreciated.

Anything is possible with loads of cash and time. This is one that would be high on the cost and difficulty scale.
The most common V8 upgrade is using the 5.0L engine from a mid '90s Explorer.
1989 Ranger Extended Cab, 2.9L, 8.8/3.73 LS, 4X4
1997 Expedition, EB, 5.4L, Air Ride, 4X4
