Hello, I have a 93 Ford Ranger XLT Vin X. 4.0L V6 Motor went so I pulled it. And then purchased a used engine from AM an online retailer out of Florida and was sent an engine that looks identical. Only difference was this one appears to have EGR (California Emissions) and my original did not. Also on top of that the new engine seems to have a camshaft sensor/synchronize deal just above the flywheel/flexplate and behind the intake. My original motor in that location just simply has a blank cover plate in that location. So on the emissions question.. to me it seems so long as i put the upper intake plenum from my old engine onto the new one and plug the hole in the exhaust manifold I should be good? as my computer system would not be searching for any EGR anyhow? And onto the sensor/synchronize deal am I ok to just cap that off with my original engines blank plate since my truck was not originally equipped with it? the engines are identical by any other comparisons.These are the only two situations that have me scratching my head. Any help would be greatly appreciated. And no this company does not seem to be one that likes to work with customers when they send the wrong products.

Thanks

Hey JD, welcome to TRS. I can't help you much with that but from what I've read I think you can do both those things, just wait for a more definitive reply. Good luck with it

My credo
If you ain't first you're last
You should be fine doing both things. That block off plate actually has a deal that drives the oil pump so just make sure it engages the oil pump and you should be fine.

Use the long block you got and swap your manifolds/sensors on

My 1991 blow up before i got it The shop that did mine got one out of a 1997 ford explorer with only 19,000 on it it was brand new But it had EGR and a Nox sensor He took a freeze plug and taped it in to place to cover the hole and changed all my stuff over to the 1997 best running engine I've ever had
