what makes the explorer engine rated at 20 less hp than the mustang engine. is it because of the computer, or just the fact its a truck and it needs the torque?

Ive heard its the exhaust. Not sure totally but it would make sense. Probably also a little in the computer. When swapped into a good breathing exhaust system on a tbird with a good chip you'd probably see some good numbers.

I'm interested to if there is anything else making a difference. Anyone else know for sure?

The 20HP difference is in the exhaust and the computer. Internall the engines are the same. Obviously the 02 Explorer engine has the aluminum block.
