This is what CobraXP wrote in another thread. I would think this would be close.





- Tranny

- Explorer water pump and timing cover

- Explorer accessory brackets

- Explorer wiring harness

- Explorer V8 or Mustang PCM

- Tranny electronics for the PCM (unless you go 5 speed, then you have to use a Mustang PCM)

- Motor mounts, etc

- 302 upper/lower intake and throttle body

- and some other things I'm forgetting...

Wow. That's just way too much money I can't afford to lay out right now. I'll stick with getting practically the same engine or better in the future by getting a Mustang 5.0. So many parts out there for that its not even funny.

Yeah i have 4wd, and theres another thread on this somewhere where i was saying its a heck of a lot cheaper and smarter to use a mustang 5.0 instead of an explorer 5.0 anyways.

From what I can see, here is what else you will need:



-Upper intake

-Manifolds (headers)

-Throttle body and intake elbow

-Intake

-Injectors

-PCM and wiring harness

-Accessories and accessory mounts

-Motor mounts

-EGR setup

-some other things also



I don't know the dimensions on the tranny, but you might need a driveshaft also. There are some other things you would need also, but this would be a good start...
