It's almost "plug and play". It will bolt up to the transmission you have, but you would need some 96/97 intake parts. Throttle cable, fuel lines, fuel rails, intake tube. You would need to take the front cover off the '94 engien and put it on the Explorer engine.

And it's 2002+ Explorer or 99+ Mustang GT, but the Explorer engines have aluminum blocks (for the most part), so they're lighter. The 99-01 (I think) Mustangs are Windors, which require some grinding to get the engine mounts to fit.

Just for reference, all Explorer blocks are aluminum, and the '99-2000 Mustang GTs are Windsors, '01-Present are Romeo.

I wasn't sure what year the Mustangs went to Romeos, but I knew it was something like that.

I had heard rumors that some Explorers 2003+ had iron blocks.

the 02+ explorer never had an iron block. Period.

some of the expeditions had the aluminum block but not all.
