Default HX35 Turbo on my 4.0

My brother gave me his holset hx35 turbo and I'm looking for a way to put it on my 94 4.0 liter ranger. Does anyone have any suggestions and what I need to spool it?

wouldnt do it unless u upgrade ur crank and rods to forged one.

It will blow the engine apart.

You will be fine as long as you don't go over 6 lbs.

6 lbs and under is not really worth it IMHO

Ok, if you have to ask, then you must not know much about forced induction.
HX35 is a diesel turbo, and it's spool rate is horrendous .
You will need to fabricate a manifold, crossover pipe, exhaust, intercooler piping, and then get the other supporting pieces like wastegate, blow off valve, oil and coolant lines, and something to tune with.
You have a higher compression motor than should be used for boost, so need to consider the cost of forged internals to drop the compression and make it safer to run.
Then consider a clutch (or rebuilt auto, depending on what you have). Over the years, drivetrain takes wear.
What gears in your axle? What kind of condition?
Is it really worth spending $3,000 to make a 1994 model pickup a little faster.
OBD-I truck, correct... that limits your tuning options considerably.
How many miles? How healthy is the engine?

There is soooo much more to it than just "what do I need to make it work", homie.

Best option really is find a ford thunderbird turbo coupe. Pull the engine from that and put it in along with the transmission.

Friend in KC has one in his 94 ranger

Very well put. The HX35 does not ring a bell with me. Do you know what manufacture uses it the most?

I am familiar with the H1C H1E WH1C which are all cummins

96-98 5.9 Cummins used them. Would of been out of a Dodge probably.
