2008 V8 Swap Questions (351W)

Have a 2008 and looking to swap in a 351W 408 engine.
My questions are on the wiring using a ford harness.
Question: What would work the best using stock harness?
I am looking at one out of a 2000 5.0V8 Explorer I know it will work, how much can I use from the 08 harness? It has a v6 in it now?
Next question is on the intake I want to use a better stock one, the 302 in 2000 had the GT 40 upper & lower...with the GT 40 upper bolt on the 1991 351 lower EFI intake? With or with out modifications?
Suggestions helpful anyone does this swap in to a Explorer or Ranger? Thanks

I'm not sure of any examples of a 351 swap in a Ranger (at least on RF), although I'm sure it's been done. The 302 is a pretty easy and common swap for Rangers. The Explorer forums may be a better source of information on a 351w swap. I haven't done much research on them.

What about a Ford 330 (5.4L)? It's been done on 1 ranger that I know of and its a beast built by a two very talented guys!

Lots of custom work but if you're up for it, do it.

If I didn't have a Ranger of my own, I would've bought that truck by now. That thing is sick!
