Hey guys, I am gearing up to do a V8 swap. But I am pretty burdened down with school so I wanna make sure I have all the parts ready before I get started. (Also it is a 70km round trip to the place I can hopefully work at)
Anyways. Based off of this thread
How to install a 1996 Explorer 5.0L into a 1995-1997 Ranger
I know I will need these things:
-oil filter adaptor and also an engine stud then?
-oil filter mount (is that the right term for where you screw on the filters?)
-oil cooler delete (basically just a hose from engine to radiator on both ends?)
-electric fans (any recommendations?)
-power steering hose from a 96 f150?
I plan to order alot of this from summitracing. So if anyone can help me that would be sweet. Main question I what headers will work? 96 explorer to a 96 ranger.
Also...I am using the expo and ranger mounts so I won't need those. Driveshafts will also be taken care of.
The engine stud confuses me a bit as well...female to male adaptor, any specific threads?
I know I ask alot of questions but I wanna make sure I don't half start a project then find out I got wrong things or did something wrong or what not. Thanks guys
