No, they dumped the 302 for the 4.6 when the distributor left.

well what vehicle are we talkin about because the last year of the 5.0 stang was '95.. while the last year for the explorer 5.0 was '01. I would think Ford wouldve changed over to a coil pack for the later 5.0L's.. but i have no idea

The explorer 5.0L was the only 5.0L to get the DIS. This was from 96-01.
