How to swap this ford ranger engine?

My friend has a 2003 ford ranger with the 5-speed auto, and the 3.0 liter vulcan engine. He wants the 4.0L engine, because it has more power, and sounds a lot better. What would be the easiest way to select an engine and equipment? I.E. what year 4.0L engine would be the best, and would be the easiest to put in his ranger Launch X431 V Update? Also, the 5-speed auto is compatible with the 4.0L engine.

Life is beautiful and wonderful!

Hi, That's what I wanted to do with my 98 ranger but I went 302 instead because its got 2 lift kits and 33x12.50 tires. The 4.0 will be the sohc engine so you will get nearly as much hp. If it was me I would try to get a wrecked ranger cheap for its drivechain..you will need most important the pcm for the 4.0 and also you may want the 8.8 diffs that the 4.0 would have that the 3.0 wont, his ranger probable has 7.5 diffs like mine does...good luck
