Mild Explorer 5.0 FS

For sale I have a 1998 5.0 V-8 Ford Explorer engine.

This engine has some mild mods to it, and was used in my V-8 swapped ford ranger for about 2 years.

Motor does not include the intake manifold, otherwise it is a complete long block with all accessories.

Details on what is in the motor:
GT-40P Headed 5.0 V-8 from a 1998 ford explorer
Generic "tall" valve covers painted black
Moroso Breather
ProForm 1.6 Roller Rockers
CompCams Double roller timing chain
CompCams Hydro roller lifters
CompCams Double valve springs
CompCams K35-349-8 Camshaft *Specs below*

The cam kit was $680 new, and the rockers were about $250.

The following has been replaced on the motor about 3 months ago:
Oil pan gasket
Headbolts
Headgaskets
Timing cover gaskets
Front Main seal

The following has been replaced in the past year:
Water pump
Water pump gasket
Alternator
CPS Sensor
Cam Syncro sensor and spindle
Both coil packs
Spark plugs (1 step colder)
Starter (for a 4R70W Transmission)

Worked perfectly, but I'd still recommend tossing on a new headgasket and resurfacing the heads since it was used with a roots blower this past year (Full disclosure). Bought a newer model mustang to replace my projects, and have no need for this.

That is the price for everything listed in this thread, if purchased with the supercharger kit I'd knock off $400 per our PM's :thumbsup:.

All of the hoses are less than 6 months old as well (Water pump, upper and lower rad, heatercore).

Ah, okay gotcha!:thumbsup:
If I'm looking at the pic correctly it looks like the A/C condensor is off the motor? Is that correct? How old are the pullies anyhow because I actually just replaced my alternator 3 weeks ago and if that one is older I'll just swap mine onto it

My ranger didn't have A/C so I ditched it. You don't need to run an Idler/Bypass pulley with it removed when using the Supercharger kit ;). You can run A/C with the kit though with a longer belt. I have Belts for it for the 2.0 pulley and 2.3 pulley without A/C at the moment, might have the belt for the A/C as well.

The alternator is probably 9 months old, the PS pump I never replaced but never whined or anything (the PS lines were replaced a year and a half ago when the swap was done). One of the Supercharger idlers is like 2 months old (Cheapy plastic one sheared off, replaced it with a metal one off an LS1), the other is as old as the SC Kit, but hasn't had any issues (Metal LS1 replacement is like $17 from Autozone).
