Default On TV: 4.6 DOHC V8 Swap!

I apologize if this is a repostl. It did not show up when I searched like terms. Regardless, I recently started DVRing Trucks! which is on Spike. The episode I just watched is about a project called "Rolling Thunder" which is in essence a Ranger (actually a Mazda) in which they are shoe horning a 4.6 DOHC V8 from a Mercury. I think they may be done with it, Ive only see Part One of Five. But I noticed they have at least up to Part Four (didnt see five on the list, but didnt check)

Here is the link to the First Episode of the project

There's a section dedicated to it over at TheRangerStation.com. Both Kevin and the other dude have been members of TRS for a while and they got alot of their insight from folks over there.


Overall, they completed "stage 1" and test drove it. Then they had a small segment in a later episode telling us of their future plans for "stage 2"...Cobra IRS and full custom front suspension and a manual trans. I think a total of 5 episode appearences so far? I don't know.
