Would a year 2000 4.0L 4x4 be capable of swapping out for a 89 and Up Mustang 5.0L Farly easily? What all Would You need to Change within the drivetrain?

i would get a 4.0l SOHC to replace your OHV if i think they are the same block so they should just bolt up to the tranny i would think... im not sure tho but it has more HP and same MPG if not better
