sleepinggt said:explorer motor is the same from heads down as mustang except it has aluminum block which is better
the intake is not good though, it's a pi intake but it takes coolant from the front crossover to go to the heater core and in high performance use the rear cylinders get a little too warm
cliff's: get explorer motor but use mustang coolant mod'd intake
I wouldn't think so anymore. The Explorer having an aluminum block crazy has hit a lot of the local wrecking yards around here and they're starting to ask top dollar for the EX engines.VicRattlehead said:dont get an engine out of a mustang. it will only cost you more money. get a 02-04 explorer engine. it will be about half the price for a better engine.
