Default Re: What did you do to your ranger today thread

yeah i fucking hate the shitty low level of water that can hydrolock the motors on these trucks... like you can barely go over your front bumper and it stalls out, its mostly because of the little mini "snorkel" that goes down under the headlight. did the airbox mod on mine scince i hydro locked 2 years ago and havent had this issue again, but i havent been deep scince and been scared although i am going to make a hidden snorkel so i can be worry free

Rook it into the dealership because 4wd would kick in and out when engaged. It needs new vacuum hoses, has a bad cylinoid, and has a leak in the differential. $1100...

Drove it to school then filled it up. $45 and 17mpg, not bad compared to last time, 14 mpg, but its winter crap so I'm pretty happy with it.

I'm not diving into the internals at this point, but I'm not just exactly 'slapping the blower on it' either:

Currently Purchased BOM for this 'project' (All items are brand new & purchased over the past 1.5 weeks):

SCT - Pro Racer Software + LaSota Manual
LaSota Racing Pro Racer Training Video
SCT - Pro Racer Tuning Manual
Zeitronix - ZT-2 Bundle (Complete On-Board Datalogger & Wideband O2 Sensor system)
Zeitronix - Black Rectangular Display

Zeitronix - MAP sensor (50 PSI / 3.5 Bar)
Zeitronix - ZAVT-1 Warning/Trigger box
Zeitronix - 20' Harness for Oxygen Sensor
Zeitronix - 8' Harness for Pressure Sensor
Zeitronix - USB to Serial Data Adapter
Zeitronix - Misc. Items (Sensor Bung, Sensor Plug, Connectors etc.)
Threaded Style IAT Sensor w/ Harness
Snow Performance - Water/Methanol Stage 2 progressive MAF Boost Cooler Injection System
Snow Performance - Misc. Items (Bulkhead Fitting, Hose/Nozzle Mount Adapter)
Misc. Wiring Items (LED Dash Indicator Lights, Heat Shrink, End Caps)
Auto Meter - Single 2-1/16" Gauge Pod
Ford Racing - 90mm Mass Airflow Sensor (M-12579-L54)
4-Wire,6-Pin MAF Connector Pigtail

Eaton M90 Eight Groove Keyed Pulleys (2.8" & 3.0")
Supercharger Pulley Puller
RP Caster Supercharger Installation Kit
RP Caster Dual Pulley Assembly (To prevent belt slippage)


I've still got a few other things to purchase (Reinforced silicone intake parts, t-bolt clamps, the actual supercharger (lol) to name a few!) - majority of the 'major' stuff should get taken care of by Sunday.
