Yes the 2.3 headers will work....

The 2.0 is just an underbored 2.3

For a little more HP I'd also look into swapping a 2.3 head and cam

93-97 rangers came with factory headers....check your local junkyards

Yes.....porting does nothing but enlarge the intake a exhaust ports for much better flow.
It won't Change how it fits on the block
