With a whole lot of modification and money, just because the cubic inches are the same it doesn't mean it's the same motor.

With enough money, tools and time you could do it. Would it be worth it, probably not. what would you gain? I don't see any advantage except maybe bragging rights that "It has a Caddy in it"

Probably easier to take the body off the explorer and put it on the caddy.
