I picked up a 4.6 and I'm wanting to put in a 5.0. What all do I need for the swop.

Everything listed above minus k member and your gonna need new headers and mid pipe. Not worth it imo. Stay 4.6 or if ur looking to upgrade go 351 with nice aluminum heads and intake instead of 302

Probably cheaper to trade it for a 94-95. I'd imagine doing a swap like this would create all kinds of headaches and bugs to work out over a long period of time. Anything making you want to do the swap vs lookin for a trade?

I was wanting to do a 5.0 with a turbo And a tko

the 95 computer is OBD1. the 96 is OBD2. You might lucky with a 96+ explorer 5.0 that has coil packs.
but it would probably be cheaper in the long run to just trade it for a 94-95

I just started body work and buying a few parts for it but I'm kinda like I ng the 351 idea. Is there going to be any problem with fitting the motor?
