Good afternoon y’all. I recently got a 1991 ranger with a 2.3 5 speed and I want to do a 5.0 swap. I trying to figure out what parts I need. I want to make it really simple so a carbureted motor, but what other parts will I need other than motor mounts and trans cross members. Like what headers are best for that and what trans can I use. Can I use the trans that’s already in the truck. Thanks for your time y’all. If there is already a page up and I missed I’m sry can y’all plz direct me to it. Thanks again

As for the base engine, everything you need, including acessories and exhaust, is best had from the 5.0 Explorers from the late 90s.

Your trans won't work. You need something else. 4.2L manual trans from an F-150 is the best option for simple.
