Explorer 5.0s have cams biased more towards low end torque than mustang 5.0s. The explorers were also all obd2 so all your wiring and sensors have to be swapped.

I know they changed the fittings on the masters in 87 but not sure about the hard line to soft line flare. Maximum motorsports sells stainless hose that will seemingly solve your problem....

The input shafts on the 94-95 t5 are a little longer than fox t5 so the bellhousings were made longer to compensate or vice versa. 64bit is right just start over. Unfortunately this is what happens...

Did they rebalance the 3.8 flywheel? If not it would be a rough running sucker. The larger 3.8 164 tooth flywheel fills the space in the larger bellhousing which is why the 5.0 starter worked. They...

Sorry, glossed over the part about the bell housing. 64bit is right the bolt holes for the starter on the 3.8 housing are not spaced correctly for the 5.0 flywheel. So that is the problem. But either...

Either starter will fit. Ford went to the smaller gear reduction starter on 5.0 mustangs in 92. The later starter is more compact and lighter but has the solenoid on the starter so you would have to...

O2 sensors are not used to regulate fuel at start up. The engine is in "open loop" for a few minutes. When it goes into closed loop the O2 sensors take over fuel management.

You'll need a new master cylinder, proportioning valve and parking brake cables. The lines will work as long as they're not rusted. The best master for that setup would be the svo, that way your...

A good set of rear upper and lower control arms with poly bushings pretty much eliminates the need for quad shocks.

If you have the back on ramps then no you won't leak fluid. Even on flat ground a full trans only drips a bit and it's just residual.

Solid trans mount with solid motor mounts is asking for a cracked bell housing. Even on a stock motor you need a little give. Get a urethane trans mount. Stiffer than rubber but has a little cushion.

Poly bushings aren't going to help ride feel as they deflect less than rubber. They will tighten things up which will help handling but comfort not so much. Subframe connectors will also tighten...

I'll assume the jumper cables were hooked up right but it sounds like you might have fried the fusible links up by the solenoid. Is there any other power? Headlights, wipers etc.

Sounds like a direct short. If you have no under hood light check the plug for it. It should be up by the master. Is your car still charging after the jump?
