ive got a 95 that needs a motor and i like the 96-7's a little more (except for plastic intake), they are easier to work on. do i need a new hood to fit the different motor? do i need a new computer for the 96-7 or is it the same as the 94-5's? thanks

You don't need a different hood or computer. You will need different fuel lines, as well as the vacuum harness, and the 95 wiring harness will work, but will need to be taken apart and re-taped to make it fit the 96 top end better.

Might as well go with a PI motor if you go to the trouble to put a complete 96 engine, otherwise just use the 96 as a long block and put the 95 intake, rails, etc. on as said above.
95 Hood will fit either.

I got a new Ford engine and new all the other parts from Ford back in 2001, It was about 5k installed. Then there is the tune, exhaust etc. Adds up pretty quick. Suspension is worn out - the list goes on. Used stuff is pletiful these days so I am sure other guys have done it cheaper.

I have '03 pi explorer engine under my '94 hood. Its tight, but it closes, and doesn't rub.
