Yes I know dumb question but would a exhaust head from a 95-97 4.0 fit a 3.0 it’s a performance head so i’m wondering if it would help, I just got a 3.0 02 and don’t want to mess too much but i want to open the exhaust and TB up for fun
And if there’s any good tips for a 3.0 that would be awesome i’m planning on getting the cooling system flushed soon and the cps changed

Are you talking about an exhaust manifold?

I've never read that they interchange. Probably easiest way to check is compare gaskets in person at a friendly auto parts place.
