try a 4l barra motor from a XR6T ...the Aussies know what i mean.......
Barra 325T FGX Sprint
The final variant of the 4.0-litre I6 cylinder turbo-petrol engine featured in the FGX XR6 Turbo Sprint. The engine employs an over-boost feature for 10 seconds when optimal atmospheric conditions are met when under full throttle, boosting power & torque to 370 kW and 650Nm.
Power: 325 kW (436 hp) @ 6000 rpm
Torque: 576 N·m (425 lb·ft) @ 2750 rpm

I have a 03 Explorer with the 4.0l Automatic 4x4.
I'm about to take on the task and try my hand at dropping the Barra 270T from a 2008 FG XR6 Turbo in it.
One problem I'm trying to get my head around is if I keep it 4x4 or just run it RWD?
Ill be looking at rebuilding the engine and running a bigger turbo.
Looking to get a winner with this big sleeper.
Any tips or tricks to help or lookout for on the way?
