if i was in your shoes i would rebuild what you already have ! the plus side of rebuilding yours you know what you have ! problem with that motor your talking about it has 69,000 miles which isn't alot, but still ! you really don't know how the motor was run, even being an explorer, if they changed oil regular . price seems little high to me, thats just my opinion ! i say rebuild yours . this just my 2 cents though !

quart say every 3000 miles, is not bad really considering you do have 131k miles ! i would sit back save your money, and when you do it, do it exactly how you want ! but their's people has more miles than you with hci, some even spaying ! i'd wait till you rebuilt it before putting hci, no need of buying 2 topend gasket sets ! pull it apart one time, then you can enjoy car more ! i also noticed that you mentioned gt 40 heads, not bad choice, not be putting down on your choice . but their is better out there for little more money, but well worth it imo . now the bottle, thats another good reason rebuild, put in some good forged pistons ! doing everything at onetime, will seem like a ton of work, and seem kinda pricey, but patients is key !
but remember this is just my opinion . i'm sure others we chime in . goodluck with whatever you decide .
