Question it lives

i just put a 2.3 out of a mustang in my ranger and we got it running and driving yesterday and when its at idle its rough and it dies but anything past that and it will burn the tires off. i dont know if the idle problem is because it still has the factory motorcraft vacum carb from the 2.0. but any one got any suggestions????

Default Re: it lives

is it a turbo engine? If not i think the early 4 cyl rangers have the very exact same motor.
