explorer motor?

So I have been searching other forums and have been told here as well to look for a explorer motor, but I have only been able to find V6 motors???? Anyone know what year and trim package I need to look for? Im looking for the p heads and uper and lowere intakes but believe I need the whole motor due to the fact I have an 86 block with brand new flat top pistons, told they wont work with anything other than the stock E6 heads on it????? Thanks in advance

You can put 85 heads on for sure, which I believe were also e7, or at least equivalent. So I know others will bolt on, not sure about which exactly. I believe most 302 heads should bolt right up.

Yeah but will the valves knock with the flat top pistons? Don't they need to be notched so they don't hit?

Yes they will likely have to be notched.

Don't notch pistons... been there, done that. Just get a complete running Explorer motor pullout. Upgrade valve springs, change out cam for the GT cam, swap any accessories needed from your car to the exploder motor and drop it in.

Please do this. You can put heads on it, just have to do a ptv test. Some heads will work some won't. I ran e7s and an e303 cam for a while.
