swapping over mustang parts? 4.0

would the heads/cams/intake manifolds and throttle body from a 4.0 bolt up to the ranger block and run correctly?

also on my truck-2007, the Mass air sensor is molded into the intake tube it looks like, and the sensor slides in the slot in the tube. would there be any problems swapping a whole assembly from a mustang(if it uses a seperate housing) so that building a new intake tube assembly would be easier?

i think it would be cheaper to go this route than buy supersix motorsports heads and such. and i am sure a stock mustang cam would have a bit more aggressive design to it than a factory ranger set.

can anyone verify this?
would the fuel system and computer need any major adjustments? other than a tune for increased performance?

Not much of a gain with Mustang parts. As a matter of fact its only a 3 hp gain. Not worth it. I'd just get Supersix or Morana Racing parts in there.

The heads and cams are the same as ours. They get the extra few hp in a smaller crank pulley from what I`ve read.
