Are you asking about what motors to use?
You can use any Explorer 4.6 block and heads from 2002-2005.

You may be able to use 2006+, I don't know. Again we are talking block and heads.
Pan, Intake, valve covers, timing cover I think would all be fine as well. Some of the hoses were upgraded over the years and are certainly better in the 04-05 models.

I've not personally done any swap work but believe this info to be true.

You have the Romeo engine. If you use a Windsor engine, you'll also need the flex plate and possibly torque converter from the donor as well. At least the flex plate.

Hey! Nice to see someone with more Explorers than myself.
