    ok i know very little about the specs on my 1994 expo it has of coarse a 4.0 but how can i get maximum power for minimum cash without a engine swap because i was considering going with a gen 2 SOHC but heard about the timing issues and said ok ill go with a 5.0 out of a 96 explorer but it seems like more trouble than its worth for the power..im lost here oh mighty explorer gods grace me with the knowledge to go and create the meanest 4.0 on the block so i may rip the pavement in twain lol xD

    The 5.0L swap is NOT more trouble than it's worth.

    Modifying the 4.0L for more horsepower, AND getting a reliable drivetrain out of it....that IS more trouble than it's worth.

    The 5.0L STARTS with more power than you get out of a 4.0L with all the traditional bolt-ons....THEN you can modify the 5.0L with all the traditional bolt-ons, and get over 2x the power of the stock 4.0L. Then you get to the transmission selection. The 4.0L has a weak selection of weak transmissions. The 5.0L has NUMEROUS options, and even the stock Explorer 5.0L transmission was rated to handle 700 ft./lbs of torque....

    As someone else has said, the 5.0L/4R70W engine/transmission combo is about as bullet proof as it gets, when it comes to drivetrain options in the Explorer, covering ALL years.
