    I have a 97 Eddie Bauer 4.0L SOHC and was wondering if I can swap it with a 5.0 motor and how hard/easy that would be? And if I can do that would it be safe to put a supercharger on it? And if I cant swap would it be safe to put a supercharger on the 4.0? :confused:

    5.0 is like a 5k swap and not worth it if you have the 4.0 sohc, and a sohc supercharger is supposedly bad on the engine because of the high compression

    MY GOD! PLEASE! PEOPLE SEARCH!

    ANd it'd be expensive, because you'd basically need a newer X donor vehicle, so as you could strip it of all the electronics you need...
