Hey yall, I have a 1997 explorer 4.0 ohv automatic and am looking to up grade to a 302 carb to do away with the efi and to produce more power. I just rebuilt the top end of this motor and moved to tenessee. Ran great till now and done dumping money into this pos. I would like opinions and costs with no doner vehicle. Things I will need and best ways to go. I can do all fabrication my self. I'm wanting a 5 speed along with it. I know it's a lot of work but something I will be wanting done.
