400 M into a 1991 Explorer Feeler Thread!

Ok guys the plans are in the works to do some major mods to my LimeGreen Monster.

This will be the first thing i do after getting back from Tellico 08. I want to have my ducks in line so this summer the motor can get the go over and the tranny re built to.

I need to get some good thinking brains going on this before i start this swap.

#1 I have a 400M Big Block that would be a nice replacement after i go thought the motor. I have the C6 and np205 comb to go with it. Im not even sure it will fit between the fenders of the explorer. Help me out here.

#2 Can you go propane injection on a 400 BB and have the power you will have from gas? I dont know much about the propane deals.

as far as other conversions, i have seen lots of strokers, but have only heard rumors of 351 swaps, and have a buddy trying to do a modular 4.6 in a first gen.

I'm worried about jealousy and my want to do something like that. Something like what the guy in that thread did for his 351 might work for your application or at least give ya an idea of where to go.

From what Ive read a Similar propane setup to a gas setup will have less power. Propane has less energy to give in combustion so you get less power.
