Follow the advise here and come back in a month to find out what to do about a transmission that won't take the extra HP.

IIRC, the SOHC didn't show up in Rangers until '01; they were in the Explorers earlier though.

Maybe Im showing my age here but, why do people want so much more power? I admit id like a little more 15-20 hp would be great, but beyond that maybe a Ranger is not what you really want.

Because its a fun hobby. Why do people build model airplanes if they can't fly in it?
