1995 Ford explorer sport v8 swap

Asked by Chris Jul 31, 2017 at 02:14 AM about the 1995 Ford Explorer 2 Dr XL 4WD SUV

Question type: Car Customization

I wanted to do a V8 sawp in my v6 Ford
explorer sport and I was told that I should
be able to get a donor V8 ,trans and wiring
harness from a Mercury mountaineer 1995-
1998 and it would be a easy swap. Just bolt
and wire it up and I'd be good to go. But it
just seems to good to be true. What other
modifications do I need to do to make it

1 Answer


just the little things. You would need the donor truck for the Exhaust, driveshafts, crossmember, radiator and things like that.
