V8 into a 1997 Ranger
Hello, my name is Philip, Iím in the Navy and I live in Washington. I am new to this forum and have a few questions.
I have a 1997 4.0 V6 4x4 ranger and I want to swap to a explorer 5.0 V-8 302 engine. Do I need to get a 1997 model of the 302 engine, or does it matter? I have the stock automatic transmission, so would I need to change the transmission as well? If so what kind would I need? Would the 4R70W auto tranny be a good choice? If so, would I need anything else with that? What else would I need to swap/get to have my truck running great? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
