Swapping an '02 Explorer engine in the '96 bird and was wondering if I can use my valve covers on the explorer engine? The PCV hose goes to the side that my engine has the oil fill cap, can i just reuse my PCV hose? Also what harness do i use? my bird harness or the explorer harness? Do i have to drill a 2nd temp sender if i use the stock explorer intake?

Not sure but I think you've got Romeo heads (and valve covers) on the 96 4.6. The 02 Explorer will have Windsor heads. Different bolt holes.

use the bird harness, yes you'll need to tap the crossover for the 2nd temp sensor, and you could get a pair of team breed valve covers with the oil fill on the driver's side (yes they are of windsor design)
