Already acquired an 01 explorer 5.0 awd hopefully I can modify the output shaft to work on my transfer case. My question is can I use the stock manifolds or do I have to use James duff conversion headers I also want to retain my ac being I live in Texas do I need the conversion radiator or will my explorer gen1 4.0 radiator work. I plan on a body lift for clearances I'm keeping it efi. An I already have a 6" suspension lift on it. Thanks in advance

I'm using the stock manifolds on my '92 and they fit and work just fine (I also have the GT40P heads). I'm also running the Explo. 4.0 HD radiator here in TX and I can't answer whether it will be good enough until late May :). The 3" BL helps a lot with fitment. I finally got mine inspected and on the road yesterday. Still sorting out a lumpy idle issue and fiddly throttle response off idle. Other than that it's good times.
