Engine swap
I checked the archives but could not find an answer so I ask.
What does it take to do an ENGINE SWAP? I have a 2000 3.0 with a 4R44E trans 4X4. I can get a 2005 4.0 engine and a 4R44E trans fron a 4X4.It comes with the Engine control computer as a package for a reasonable price. Can I swap them? What items will I need to change? I was thinking about mounts and wiring harness' room to fit and things like that. Can anyone help me with this question? The doner truck is a Madza B4000 if that matters.
Or I could just swap out the transmissions, So while I am asking, I'll ask if there is anyway difference in the transmission that would cause a problem just swaping them.

Re: Engine swap
yes you can swap them so far it sounds like you got it all i would check the postion of the motor mounts but it should fit considering that is the same truck bodys bout the same size is the same so yea it should fit and be abit snug as every 4.0 is in a ranger and you say you can get all the wires and computers for the motor so forth you should be good. just do your homework and take your time and get it done right and do be afarid to ask questions. any question you may think is stupid is only stupid if you dont ask.
