Putting my mustang motor project into a ranger now. It has 4wd and I want to keep it that way. Will an explorer computer and wire harness work with a mustang motor? if so what needs to be adapted, if not what can I do instead? Thanks for any info here I know this is not all about mustangs so I am curious the feedback I receive.

how would you mod a fox ecu to engage a 4wd system? and you can make a distributor motor use a coil setup? which is the best route?

Thinking now I have to sell the project motor and get an explorer to mod... just to make things work properly

Wow your ranger looks awesome! My ranger is a 1998 and I have a 5.0l for a mustang I was going to put in: stock bottom end, afr165 heads, edelbrock performer rpm intakes, trick flow stage 1 cam.

Wondering how this would work out with an explorer ecu being for coilpacks and my motor has a distributor like the other poster brought to my attention. What could I do to make this motor usable as well as the 4wd and it is a 5 speed right now, would like to keep that. The TKO has multiple shifter mount points so it can get the shifter right up by the original location

I appreciate all your info here sir I really do. I just got into this idea about 2 weeks ago so a lot of digging around needs to be done on my end.

The f150 5 speed trannys were not rated at too much hp/tq either... advanced adapters make an adaptor for tko+transfer case? thats what I was thinking. The final thing I got and keep asking I know, is an explorer ecu will run a mustang 5.0 with a distributor? I got the extras I'll need to get as what you're listing but sensors and things will match up and run it?

It will go offroad which is why I want to keep the 4wd system but I never do anything crazy enough to break things. Just a bit of safe fun... and I will burn a few wanna be's on the street in a truck lol
