    My 97 4 door v8 AWD

    I finished the driver side. This side I had to cut and weld on a couple of tubes. I also had to cut the engine mount to clear the collector. I welded on some stepped v-band flanges. Next is to wrap them.

    My 97 4 door v8 AWD

    I have started to modify a set of Ebay headers. I have the driver side done. These are for a 60's mustang. They appear to fit the GT40P head. These look just like a set of Sanderson headers. The smashed tube is still around 1/2-3/4 thick, but is full tube. Not cut up. When I was using the air...

    My 97 4 door v8 AWD

    I decided to post my 97 Explorer v8 AWD. I have owned this Explorer since 2012. I have done a far bit of work to it over the time and it has taken many forms. The first thing I did was pick up a torsion key lift and add a leafs with lift shackles. I was able to fit 33x10.5/15 on stock rims. The...

    Idea For V8 Headers

    In that thread, Puferfish has a great plan for custom headers. But what I am looking to do is take some thing that is in production and modify it to use in my explorer. The header design Pufferfish came up with look close to the hedman headers for an early 289-302 shorty header

    Idea For V8 Headers

    How much power with the 4.0L bottom end handle

    You can make a lot of power with the OHV. Start by getting some good rod bolt or it will never hold up to alot of boost. But as stock stay less the 8 psi. The heads are the limiting factor of the 4.0 ohv.

    My 91 Explorer Project

    sorry for slow post. I have started, by collecting parts. I found out that my front axle is bent and need a new housing. I also started driving it daily, so this is also slowing me down.

    Unnatural engine swap...

    The engine will not pass emission. The law in in most states is, that you may use only engines newer than the vehicle year. In your case you have 99 you need to use 99+ engine. If emission are not your concern. I suggest using an AOD from a F-series trunk I will help you with 4WD.

    My 91 Explorer Project

    Yes, I have my axles. I bought a set off a 2000 Super Duty for $750. The bad part is that the front is bent a little, so I keep it for parts. P.S. I will be using 315/75/16 (35"x12"). Thank you for looking.

    1998 motor swap to a 1992

    If you have the whole thing engine, trans, wiring it would pay-off in the long run to switch to OBDII. Nothing beats OBDII for diagnostics, and tuning. I am doing a simular swap myself. I am using a 97 explorer with the SOHC and swaping it all to a 91. I bought the 97 for $900 whole...
