Default Re: V8 into a 1997 Ranger

i would find a v8 explorer 97 or older(98 is when they added the passive anti theft stuff to it if i remember correctly) that has been totaled in a wreck or something and use the engine and transmission from that in your ranger because you cant put your tranny on a 302 but if you have the complete explorer it should just a plug and play engine swap basically just make sure you switch out the ECMS and i think everything is in the exact same spot on the engine bay

and asfar as a diffrent transmission i would get a t-5 or t-56 but that just me i prefer a manual over an automatic
1990 Ranger Extended Cab
2.9L V6 5 Speed Transmission
Planning to put a 347 and a T-5 in it eventually
