you could do the the throttle cable mod, it will help responsiveness and is highly recommended especially for older rangers.

how do you define "quick" and "easy"?

over the course of your life (80-90 years) a year of down time building an engine is fast. and compared to trying to make the human body by yourself, should be a cake walk

A guy needs more HP when he's driving around with his foot on the floor at near redline and still not getting the job done. That can happen when you're pulling a heavy trailer or racing for money. Where exactly are you coming up short?

The only way you are gonna see 250rwhp is with either forced induction and some n2o, or a fully built engine, again likely w/spray.
Here is a build up guide. Assuming you are interested in what it takes to make the hp you are looking for.
http://www.rangerpowersports.com/for...ts-232180.html Sry to link to another forum.

There are some guys out there who have cracked the 200rwhp mark, but I assure you, without a serious investment, it isnt very likely to happen.
