Default Boostin my 2001 ranger

So im going to boost my ranger but everything i see is for a DOHC and i have a SOHC. I was just wondering if the the turbo manifold for a DOHC would work fine on my SOHC.

But will the DOHC manifold fit on the SOHC? Also do you have to do a DOHC if your are going to put the internals from a 2.3 mustang or thunderbird in my truck?

No they wont fit. The exhaust ports on the heads are differently spaced and shaped compared to the DOHC heads.

also define internals, and why you would do that?

Do you know of anyone who makes a turbo manifold for the SOHC. Internals wise i mean cams, pistons, and rods.

Not for a 2.3 no. If you had a 4.0 I could help you. But if you want to turbo it you will have to do it yourself.

They dont make a kit for dual cams conversion of my knowledge. If you really, really want dohc then personally i would swap the engine out.

I was afraid you were going to say that. Nothing is going my way for this project at all.
