1993 ranger(splash) v8 conversion questions

Well basically I have a 1993 Splash with a 4 cylinder 5 speed tranny with 300,000 miles still runs great...But I think it is time for a v-8 swap has anyone here done this and know what motor set-up works best...Iwas thinking 5.0 out of a mustang or something...Also how hard is it to find parts to do the swap...Thanks

Bob

The easiest way to do it is to get a V8 out of an Explorer or Mountaineer.

Re: 1993 ranger(splash) v8 conversion questions

for emmisions you need to go with a newer v-8 depending on the state then the year engine you have. in general. it varies state to state and my state it has to look stock. if you have a 3.0 engine count on changing the transmission also. i dont know about the 4.0, but you should any way because the transmission is weak.

the years explorers had v8 from the factory is i thing 95 and newer. but people put in 4.6s and 5.0 from mustnags and thunderbirds as well as from f-150s all the time. its not that much harder its just a matter of getting all of the parts. below are the "put a v-8 in a ranger" sections of the most popular ranger forums. and most if not all of the figuring has been done so all you have to do is read and swap.

Re: 1993 ranger(splash) v8 conversion questions

ok havent been on here in a while but I am now ready to move forward with this project what I am going to try to do if you guys think it will work is. I have 2 vechicles first on a 2000 mustang gt with fulley bolt on and cammed 4.6 this is what I want to take and put into my 1993 Ranger with the 4 cylinder rmotor currently in there.Because I am going to put a 4 valve Cobra motor in the mustang. I know I can do the 4 valve in the Mustang rather easily do you all know what I am in for when it comes to putting the 4.6 in the Ranger and has anyone here done this before..thanks again everyone
