    1996 explorer MAF to filter

    Hi Widowmaker, I think I got the 3" tube and clamps from Spectre Performance, but I don't recall where I got the silicone 3" 60 deg elbow and 3" adapter at the MAF from. Google'd them and a lot of choices come up at Amazon. I forget the exact size of the MAF and throttle body openings, but I...

    1996 explorer MAF to filter

    I pulled an airbox out of a 2001 Explorer while dumpster diving at the junkyard and repurposed it to be a cold air intake on the passenger side. It did require a battery relocation to the driver side, which was a bit of a PITA.

    1996 explorer drop in as is?

    Garry was booked 6 months out when I did my 96 swap, so I went after the harness myself. (the wire strippers in Garry's tool video are from the company I work for) I can add a few things that might help. I made a PDF of the C115 connector wires detailing what to delete, what to keep and which...

    Inline 6 to V8 conversion | How do I fit my new radiator?

    When I did my swap to the 96 Explorer, I took the original I-6 radiator mounts and ripped them with a cutoff wheel vertically. Then flipped them and used 4 spacers to get the correct width for my new radiator. I went with a 69 Mustang radiator from Champion that kept the mounts along the sides...

    Explorer OBD2 Harness Re-work

    Hi Betz, I fused my PCM at 30 amp, fuel pump at 20 amp, Ign Coils at 25 amp and the O2 Heaters at 15 amp. I ran #4 AWG to the fuse box because I had the wire and lugs for it. It has a 175 amp Bussman megafuse between it and the battery / alternator buss. I really should reduce that megafuse...

    Explorer OBD2 Harness Re-work

    Hi Chuzie, I do not have any wiring diagrams for those years specifically, but I did download a PCM pin diagram that someone had put on the site. It helped me when I was doing my harness. I can also add the sheet I made detailing Garry's description of the C115 connector wires and which ones...

    explorer swap questions

    Here's my setup. The attached might help you when redoing the engine harness. I made it from EFI Guy's videos. I would HIGHLY recommend the Bussmann 15303-2 fuse / relay block. I made my first one from a standard box and did not do a good job on the jumpers. This Bussmann box has internal...

    explorer 5.0 swap, what harnesses are needed?

    Have you watched the videos on Youtube from the EFIGuy on how to re-work the engine harness and tie it in to your existing wiring? Search EFIGuy 5.0 on there and you should find the 3 videos that he made. Much of it explains what pins you can remove from the C-4 connector that links the engine...

    The perfect "reuse" of the Ash Tray door...

    Not as purty as yours, but I was able to install a 3 rocker switch panel in place of my ash tray w/o drilling any holes. Onboard air, front PIAA lights and Explorer high idle option that Garry programs in for us. Worked great. That clock really looks good!

    Daughter and Dad '74 restoration

    That Bronco is beautiful! Already has power steering and I am guessing a Dana 44 front end. If rust is minimal, you have quite a gem to start with there. Best of luck on the build and ask away if you have questions. We all live to Bronco! Cheers, Bill

    A very bad thing happened...

    When I did my 96 Explorer EFI build some Jackass (with the help of Jack Daniels) let a nut slip down into the lower intake and didn't catch it. It fired up and actually ran for days while I tried to figure out what the Hell was "just not right". Compression test gave it away completely. Sorry...

    Bronco Script Valve Covers - Reversed?

    Hi BigMuddy, I found a billit aluminum cap that fit in the fill tube perfectly. I also had to cut that fill tube down a couple of inches. You can see it in this pic when I was mocking up my new relay / fuse box. Fred, thanks for the kind words! Appreciate that! B2
