How hard would this swap be? I have a 96 ranger 4x4 with the 5spd behind a tiring OHV 4.0. Would also like to swap in the SOHC 5speed. Anyone done this swap before? I've tried to read into it, but all I could really find is some pics of it sitting in the earlier ranger engine bay. I also read it was only a few wires to swap in and it'll run on the old ECU, but couldn't find much more then that. Anyone got some better info for me?
Also I was wondering if putting the M90 supercharger on it would be too much for the OHV ecu. Thanks guys
If it ain't broken... don't fix it?!?! SCREW THAT!!! Friends don't let friends drive stock
I've never done a swap myself but I have worked on and driven the OHV and SOHC 4.0ls a lot. You will be happy with the performance increase of the SOHC, its a big difference. I'm pretty shure the 4.0l SOHC/5Spd manual combo was never put in the Explorer but it was put in the Ranger.
