I'm a simple guy. I would still prefer the 5.0 with a 5 speed and AWD in a '99/'01 Sport.

I may find a way to make an Ex diesel powered one day.. I'd love to put a 1.9 TDI VW engine in a Ranger. The explorer would be too heavy for that. A 4BT would be better but really heavy and unrefined.
Someone is thinking Tesla..?
How about diesel-electric hybrid?
I have a new wish engine, the new Lincoln 3.0 turbo. In the AWD MKZ, it will be 400hp. That'll be a fun Lincoln.
I'm doing the 5.4 sohc on my ex as we Speek with a c 4 trans and 203/205 trans, it's going well so far.
That will be interesting, you should start a thread in the modified first gen forum.
That sounds like a good idea, maybe it will help someone.
I've read a lot of very interesting engines in this thread. But most of them won't fit without MAJOR modification to the chassis and body. But since I'm a simple man.... I just want a 351 from a Gen I Lightning. Should fit without too much modification and will tow my camper better than the 5.0.
I'm keeping my vote secret.
I think for Offroad I'd prefer the OHV for reliability. If I was building a street machine or just a nice cruiser I'd definitely want the 302 2WD with a Limited Slip. It'd be nice to have the option to use some of the aftermarket mustang parts. Just my not as educated as some of the others opinion. Every engine has its pros and cons. Unless it's an L28ET in a pretty 280zx. Then that's great all around.
How about the new 2.8L turbo diesel cummins?
It's not out yet, but looks pretty sweet
Its coming out now finally. They are going to sell 500 this year and open the gates next year. Unofficial price $8999
I would LOVE a 4BT diesel . They are bullet proof and they make great power with a upgraded turbo and fuel needle
For everything they offer with it, 9K isn't a bad price.
Hi people new to the forum from Australia,
I have a 03 Explorer with the 4.0l Automatic 4x4.
I'm about to take on the task and try my hand at dropping the Barra 270T from a 2008 FG XR6 Turbo in it.
One problem I'm trying to get my head around is if I keep it 4x4 or just run it RWD?
Ill be looking at rebuilding the engine and running a bigger turbo.
Looking to get a winner with this big sleeper.
Any tips or tricks to help or lookout for on the way?
