eddie bauer 2003 v6 and v8 option

25

Asked by May 07, 2008 at 10:59 AM about the 2003 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer V8 4WD

Question type: Car Customization

I have a 2003 eddie bauer.  I have to get the engine replaced  (cracked).   This might be a dumb question but does anyone know If the the v6 can be easily replaced with the eddie bauer v8.   I have had 2 explorers and I wish I bought the one with the v8.  The v6 seems to have problem after problem.     I am just hoping since the eddie bauer In 2003 had the v8 or v6 option that they may be interchangable.   I have to have a new motor put in anyway, so I would much rather have a v8.  Also the v6 is so bad on gas anyway.    So if anyone knows if they can just be swapped, please let me know.   Jordan..            jordanmurrayjcm@hotmail.com

Should be doable, but it depends on your definition of easy. Not sure if this requires any additional crossmembers, etc. Have a trusted mechanic give you a price to do the job.
