I am currently in the research phase of putting together a DOHC Cobra powered Explorer. Its a 2002 with 4X4. I have noticed a couple of people in this forum either attempting or completing a DOHC swap. Does anyone have any advice? Were you able to make the climate controls work? Did you need different power steering lines?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks

I have done this swap. Pretty straight forward as long as you are starting with a v8 Explorer. Almost everything bolts up, I used a lot of aviator parts also. I am using a stock explorer pcm with a custom tune. All my climate control works like factory.I had to bend 1 power steering line to fit. Feel free to message me with any questions. Or search “project Explobra” for my build thread. My picture links were broken from photobucket, but I still have them.
