I have a 4.0 L automatic 4X4 1995 explorer and its got a serious miss and very poor mileage. I would love to save the truck but am thinking it may need a new drive train. I would love to upgrade to a V8 but am aware they were not equipped with this option in that year. I would love to drop a 351W or 302 into the SUV if it could be done easily or perhaps even a performance enhanced 4.0 if I had to.

Is this an upgrade that could be easily done with off the shelf parts from another explorer application from a later vehicle that was with a 302 V8. Could a donor from a Windsor based F-150 application get me some more performance?

If anyone has done this successfully, I would be excited to learn from your experience. What part list items would I need to have to get this done?
