Re: Ok so I have decided to go with the 5.0 swap after all
I realize the wiring issues i'm going to come to, however I have a best friend who happens to be an ASE certified master tech, who also has access to alldata, the reason i'm going with the 5.0 is because the explorer motors are basically the same, diff heads and distributorless ignition system, is all i can recall being different between the two motors, i have also decided to upgrade from the mustang's dizzy to the explorer dis and trans to make the swap that much easier, if that makes any since... the reason i am chosing this particular motor is because it came out of the 92 mustang i used to drive before i got my ranger, so i know the basic issues that the motor has as well as what i'll need to repair/replace before putting the engine in the truck, the only issue i'm going to have is if i can't go with the explorer tranny is getting the aod to accept the speedo sensor, or getting a gauge cluster that will accept the speedo cable, then of course adjusting the trans pressure for the kickdown cable so that I don't blow the gears out of the trans. thanks for the good words and the great pointers, if you guys have any more you think will be helpful (even if they aren't that helpful) they will be greatly appreciated and i will take all info under advisement.
