    Nope, too wide for the engine bay. The '94 pushrod 5.0L is the last year that will fit. If you can find an explorer donor, with the early 5.0L, is you easiest conversion.

    I'm putting an 00 explorer 5.0 in my 01 trac.
    It will fit, but 98 is the oddball year that has different wiring and a fuel return. If you have emision testing you will need a 01 pcm that will not work with the 98's wiring. ideally you wnat a 99-01.

    As an FYI there is no 302 that wont fit. The pushrod 5.0 and roller 5.0 are the same externally. I am also putting a 00 explorer 5.0 into my 74 bronco.
