Default 4.6 supercharged

i just bought a 4.6l supercharged cobra mustang, it was totaled and picked it up for a 1000, no engine or driveline damage. motor worth that alone. has anyone tried to fit this motor in a ranger?

That's a deal man. Have you seen Rolling Thunder on Spike TV's Powerblock? They did it.

Yea, powerblock trucks did the swap, but they did a bunch of extra work, bringing up the frame to strenght with the power and did a total cobra axle swap on it. Not too sure on everything they did, but they used a single cab 2000ish mazda truck. You can do it with just having a 8.8" and maybe having a lsd to help up, and don't launch it. Just remember that its a very powerful motor and you'll need to be easy with it in a Ranger frame. Just swap over the engine/tranny and computer/wires and it'll be set to go. Of course heres a bunch of little things you'll need to do, to make room for the engine, and the headers I believe need a little dent on them for the steering column. If you want to watch the show, amazon has their shows for sell for download. Again, its "PowerBlock Trucks". Which is aired on Spike (the channel).

untill I see pics, my BS flag is up.

Also, good luck trying to cram a terminator cobra motor in a ranger. Those things are wide as hell.

If it's true - That motor's worth much more than that - like 6 times more than that - easy.
