Well, I want to upgrade my engine to a newer 5.0. I was really wondering about the Explorer 5.0 what the difference from the F150 and Explorer, and all the others? What do I need to put a Explorer 5.0 in?, or another one? I can get one for cheap, and I was wondering.

Looking it over, and I read up on what I really want. That's just the Intake Manifold From the beasts, well maybe the Cobra's. ... so how would that work? I need to read up on it.

It looks like they do use this setup. I think I will go for it, and see what happens. Thanks for the help BadInten

I've always thought that "in theory" it would be one of the easier swaps since the frame is the same between explorers and rangers.

Yes, the "in theory" saying, making something ridiculous sound scientific!

wait we are not talkin about a ranger danny its an f-150 with the 300 6cyl i think if so a stock 50 is just that now in most cases an suv would have more power than a car or pickup do to weight but we are talkin about a full size truck in this case and from the fact i have seen the expo heads are better flowing from the factory and the cobra intake should fit together

You're right BADINTEN, I was thinking about the Expo/Ranger swap. Totally slipped my mind that he has an F150 now... Haha!
