Well with the 5.0 efi its a direct swap the only cutting you'll have to do will be the passenger side of the fire wall will have to be trimmed about 5 or so inches to clear your headers

Not with an Explorer 5.0 swap...no cutting needed. Any other engine can be made to work...with enough skills & $$$

No trimming needed that I know of.....a 94 may be slightly different than a 96 though.

The deck height is a little taller which makes it wider too.
