The figures vary for different years. I think the Vulcan started out with 140hp/160tq. when it was first introduced for the Taurus in late '85. I think in '08 when it was retired it was 155hp/185tq.

3.0?

Making 800+whp, with 600+fpt.

Oh wait, that's the 2JZGTE I worked on the other day.

My 3.0 - about 148 bhp I think.

horse power is not equivalent or a direct correlation of what you are trying to achieve, tanks have a bagillion hp but aint all that fast, ranger, with its engine config is not set up for speed but rather every ounce of "power" it has is used for torque, so turbo, supacharge whatever is the only way youll amp up the power/speed while maitaining weight
