Hello All!!

I am currently in the process of swapping a 1999 explorer 5.0 into my 2001 Ranger 3.0 EDGE. currently as of right now i have the motor sitting in the Ranger(been busy working 12s at work has me messed up) i have a ALLDATA account and i have been in the process of figuring out the pin out of both of the 12 pin connectors (the C125 & C139). still trying to figure out all of this wiring and was curious if anyone had some insight. my main concerns are the two different PATS systems, the whole ground this pin and move this pin stuff and the speedo but I've seen where people use the G Force transducer. I've tackled a 12 Valve cummins swap in my F250 but that was pretty cut and dry. i still have the donor explorer just in case i needed anything off of it, also i plan on using the 8.8 out of it.

I appreciate all feed back and help!!!

This pretty well illustrates why 99% of all swaps that must keep EFI and pass emissions inspection use the GM LS V8.
The better option is to register the truck somewhere that doesn't care about the details.

No.

The solution is not to register the truck somewhere else, or to use a totally different engine to get through inspection (nothing against GM engines).

Brantley - do you still have questions? If so, make them as specific as possible and we can get you sorted out.
