Default V8 Ranger

Anybody got one?

I wanted to put this 302 I have in my garage in my 92 single cab, but never did.

Anybody swapped in a V8?

I have a 1993 5.0L 302 and AOD in the garage. I just need to find the time to rebuild her then the Ranger will have a powerhouse that actually moves her weight. Any help or advice from you guys that have done this before would be appreciated. This will be my first motor swap/rebuild and engines aren't my forte. Can't wait to get it in, though.

RoadDotWarrior, where in the I.E. are you? I live in Corona.

I'm in Fontana.

Sounds like you guys have some cool trucks!

I have a single cab 92 square body, now it's bagged and body dropped on I beams.

I origionally wanted to build a full chasis with mustang II independant suspension up front, 4 linked rear

and put a 302 in it I pulled from an old mustang I had.

But I bagged it on I beams and kept the 4cyl in it to be my little gas savin cruiser.

I had planned to put the 302 in my 1950 Ford Shoebox,

But I have bigger plans for that thing....

Fuel Injection.

Comming Soon...
