      I have a 2001 Explorer XLT and am swaping out the engine. I have a line on a 1999, all things considered, it should be a simple swap?

      If it's the same engine, the 2001 came with either a 4.0L V6 SOHC or 5.0L V8 OHV, while the '99 came with either of those or a 4.0L V6 OHV.

      Yes, my 2001 is 4.0 SOHC equipped. What differences am I looking at if the '99 is an OHV?

      ^ Everything. You'll want to transfer over ALL of it including the wiring harness and ECM. These aren't rare vehicles so I don't even understand why you would do that.

      $1000+ worth of labor to downgrade the engine on a vehicle worth $1000 tops if/when with a bad engine? I cannot value your time, but I would only do this extensive a swap with a perfectly good body to swap a 5.0L V8 into if I were rebuilding the whole thing.

      Thanks, I think. Already have a call in to find out which one they have.
