Default 4.6 anyone

So, i'm new to this site... and so far it's a shame on how nobody here talks of a 4.6 dohc swap in a ranger... so i guess i will be the first to talk...
i have a 1998 ford ranger that i am currently in the process of dropping a 4.6 dohc into... pics will be up as soon as i get the hang of this forum...

yeah most people do the 5.0 swap because its easier to do and i want to see pics of the 4.6L swap!!! i would do something like that but it sucks finding a manual transmission for a 4.6... oh and ive seen a 4.6l swap on trucks and it was badass

meh, most are on rps or trs that have done this swap. Not done too often on here because most guys here are 4wd guys, and want low end power and torque (hence a 5.0 swap).

Most pics of your shit. Waht do you have?

There may not be a guy on here that has done the 4.6 DOHC swap on here, but the swap has been by done by from what I have research only 3 people. Its a fairly easy swap, if you need help researching it just type in 4.6 DOHC in google and there is a guy who documented most of his build. The hardest part would be making the headers. Oh yeah you will loose your A/C, but who needs that? A/C is over rated! lol
