Is a 96 ford explorer 4.0 v6 interchangeable with a 98 4.0 v6?

I was told if the 8th vin is the same, they are interchangeable with a couple minor changes: intake swap and a distributor sensor. Possible wiring harness. 8th vin is X, will this work easily?

    Yes it will work. Just be sure to check double even triple check all the connections and each sensor. Make sure the same. If in doubt change all of them. But yes the basic engine itself yes the same.
