I'm interested in buying a particular part off of your blown motor.
Looking for a professional retrofitter to add HIDs or LEDs to your Ranger? PM me if your looking to have work done, and have cash to spend.

the 02 and the 97 2.3's are two completly different engines, you would need a 01 and up 2.3, its possible to put the 97 2.3 in it but you would need all the wiring, computer and not sure what else but you would end up with less power and less mpg's so you wouldnt want to do it
