Default new motor for my 94?

what is the newest motor that will drop directly into my 94 2.3L standard cab ranger, note, it has fiberglass fenders in front and a couple things have been re mounted so there is a bunch of space, also has a 3" body lift.

my motor feels so gutless with 183000 miles and the valve seals are leaking making things worse. im afraid its time is comming and when it does i would like to throw the newsest 4 cylinder i can in there, TIPS?

Default Re: new motor for my 94?

I plan on doing the very same thing with my '96. Advice I was told was, Go to a pick-n-pull and find a donor With a Durstec 2.3E, (Calif.), and get the engine, engine loom, and the EEC.

My game plan is to rebuild the Deratec with Cosworth parts and maybe a Garett T-4. There's a lot of research you need to do before considering a engine swap............
