Are you talking distributorless? The explorer motor was distributorless but wasn't a true coil on plug. What are your reasons for wanting to do this?

Yes you'll want a new intake manifold. The stock one was simply adequate for a 302. With that you definitely need to upgrade your air tract and throttle body. Again, the stock parts weren't made to...
