Is retrofitting a 5L in a Sport anymore involved/difficult than a 4dr?
Also, Is there anything more involved with putting in a t5 in a 5L than in a 4L? In other words if you do a 5L swap and want to keep the stick and use a T5, will it be any more difficult retrofit than if you kept the 4L and did the work?

If no to the first question, then what is the difficulty if you can get a wrecked 5L Explorer and just swap (1 way of course)

Thanks

The 5.0 will fit, I could be wrong but your front end I would guess is the same as the 4dr. People have put the 5.0 in their sports before, try a search and you should get some more info. As for the T5 I'm not sure?
