The difference between a 2005 4.0L Mustang engine and a 2005 4.0L Ranger engine.

Hey guys,

I was just wondering what the difference between a 2005 4.0 SOHC Mustang engine and a 2005 4.0 SOHC Ranger engine is. I'm mainly talking about the engine accessories like the power steering pump, A/C compressor, air box, and the motor mounts. I know the power steering fluid reservoir is different. I found a nice 2005 Mustang 4.0 but I need to know what Ranger parts I'll need to get to put it in my truck.

Thanks in advance,

Brian

I'll look up the accesories at work tonight. I'm thinking they are a good bit different, and that a mustang has an electronic throttle where a ranger has a cable throttle but I'm not positive.

Hey Steven,

Thanks for responding to my question. If that Mustang engine has an electronic throttle then that'll be a full on deal breaker.

Please let me know as you find out,

Brian

I guess it's too hard to use google for ya but here's what I found

Mustang Heaven - 2005 Ford Mustang


It says in it that the mustang has electronic throttle. I'd guess you can convert to cable throttle?

No, It's not too hard for me to use Google. If you can't respond to my threads with some respect then stay out of them.

i think that the air intake is on the opposite side too, not 100% sure though.

why is drive by wire such a big deal, you should be able to switch the throttle body out to the ranger variety.

X2 ... It is a bunch of bull****
I've seen this boy/kid put down a lot of other people on this site for no apparent reason.
It's pretty obvious at this point that he's like the school yard bully and he has to talk trash about other people to feel better about himself.

Yeah, good point ... drive by cable isn't such a big deal, but what all will I need from a Ranger 4.0 to do this?
I know you mentioned the throttle body, but will I need the upper and lower intake too?
