    5.0 Long tube header build

    I have 351w ideas in my future also, i have designed (well i hope) enough clearance into these headers to run the taller deck height block and still have enough clearance. Once i pop the 302 with nitrous, 351w + strokerkit + $$$$ is the idea.

    5.0 Long tube header build

    Im no pro, but i enjoy the challenge of making something myself. First set of headers i have built, i am happy with the fitment, just not the welds/welder. i have upgraded from the gas less wire to a gas setup thought. :thumbsup:

    5.0 Long tube header build

    Space is tight, the tires under full lock have 3/4 of a inch clearance, i am running a 20x8 wheel with 245/35/20's. I took the torsion keys out so the truck would sit down on the bump stops to make sure there was enough clearance. The motor in it is just for mock up puropses. Everything will...

    5.0 Long tube header build

    I am going to run a set of cutout's on the outside of the frame but, the exhaust will run along the outside of the frame rails, then turn under behind the transmission cross member, and run out the back like normal. Progress pictures. Passengers Side header is done. Now to send them...

    5.0 Long tube header build

    The steering shaft is not a problem, it has 1" clearance on both the 3rd and 4th primary's, when it is unbolted it collapses together and will lay down on top of the motor mount. the header will come directly out without any fight. Outside of the frame rail is the only place to get a 1 5/8...

    5.0 Long tube header build

    Been working on a set of Long Tube Headers for the 5.0 in the explorer. Drivers side is mocked up and ready to be welded up for good. Header collectors exit on the outside of the frame rail.

    Please fix my Eddie! 4.6 Stalling at idle when revved.

    My 2003 Limited with the 4.6 did a similar thing, only when it is cold, i pulled off the idle cont. valve and cleaned it, seems to solved the problem so far.

    stock explorer with no o2 sensors?!!

    It sounds like the O2's may be turned off inside of the Powertrain Control Module (PCM). This can be done with a aftermarket tune.

    97 Explorer 5.0 Cobra Intake?

    The #1 Upgrade on a 5.0 Explorer is the aftermarket headers and exhaust. Factory **** is restrictive as hell.

    temperature gage does not work

    Both coolant sensors are mounted on the front of the lower intake under the coil packs. One is in the heater hose outlet coming off of the intake, the other is directly mounted in the intake. I am unsure on which one goes to the gauge and which one goes to the pcm.

    Removing pinstripe covered with clearcoat?

    I wouldnt recommend removing the stripe if it has been cleared over. You might be able to take a razor blade and remove the stripe, no guarantees that it will look good though.

    Low oil temp - check gauge light on - cold temps only

    Same problem as OP. Mine is a 01 sport, the colder it gets the worse the delay before the gauge works. Its the Oil Pressure sending unit, not a big deal to change, but it doesent bother me.

    Eddie bauer with out running board

    It would not be to difficult to go to the local junk yard and get the ground effects off of a explorer that did not come with the running boards and put them on a eddie. Like these: I honestly hate the fugly flares that go around the wheel wells.

    RPM question- is this normal?

    Check your transmission fluid, the last 97 sport i had with the 5 speed auto (97+) would not shift into lockup. added some trans fluid to bring it up to full and then it shifted into lockup properly. It was turning 2600-2800 @ 70 before. Another good way to see if it is going into lockup is to...
