so basically you guys are saying that for me not to put a 4.6 mod motor in the ranger, but the classic and most common engine... the 302! right?

To answer the original question, the aviator is a 4v motor. Most 4.6s are 2v.

thnkz,

DRFTNGKNG!! :P
There aint no way you're going to get that thing to fit. The only way to get it to fit is to redo the front half of the truck period. I'm talking from firewall forward, frame and all. After you get through doing that you'll be doing some body work too, because none of your body panels will even come close to original fitment either. I know of one guy that did it when he restored an old 98 ranger on another website. He also swore he'd never do it again either. That was just the actual physical swap. He had all kinds of problems after he got in the engine bay. He pretty much spent nearly 4 times what it would cost to do a 5.0 engine swap and it took 10 times longer for him to complete it too.

...that comment was ridiculous. Simple question: If the 5.0 is better than the 4.6, why did Ford replace the 5.0 with it?

LOL!! excellent comment Little Blue!! i was thinking of doing a 347 swap on an HO and prob put a few hairdryers on it. prob about 600hp in a little ranger. woop woop!! u guys are right, because of the smaller size of the 5L, there is more space for forced induction!!

we're not saying it is impossible because it is possible to do that and it has been done before. The point we're making is that for his paticular application, there will be alot of fab work and it will take longer than normal. If he can pull it off more power to him, in fact I hope does try it and post a project thread of it on here. I'm sure others would love to see what's involved. Too bad that the new 5.0 costs too much and there's virtually no aftermarket support for it yet because it's still new and in it's testing phases still.

Well if you want to wait it's your decsion really. We just wanted you to know that is wouldn't be a virtual overnight/weekend project to do. It will take time and alot of money. The one guy I did meet that did do the 4.6 V8 swap did tell me a little tip. He said to use an explorer that came with a 4.6 liter V8 to help with all of the clearance issues that you'd come across. He wouldn't tell me about what he had to do for the exhaust system. In fact he tried changing the subject many times over when I went back to it.
