Usually slightly lower, but insignificantly so (5-10% typically).

Stupid question here...

Is this a 4.0 Pushrod V6 or a 4.0 SOHC V6 .... Pretty good power diffrence here...

If memory serves these are both 60* V6'*

The pushrod 4.0 makes 160 Hp and 230 ft lbs I think

and the 4.0 SOHC makes 205-210 HP and 250 ft lbs<---- I drove a 99 explorer a ways back and it did pretty good, I was supprised at its willingness to get up and go...

96'* were also pushrods too I believe. IIRC the OHC was an option motor I think?
