Post Engine / Transmission Year Guide

I've been shopping for a (used) Ranger, and most craigslist ad's say something like "4cyl,5speed" without really telling which 4 cylinder (2.0 Lima, 2.3 Lima, 2.5 Lima or 2.3 Duratec). There is a dizzying array of engine transmission options that Ford has offered over the years, so I've been scouring the net trying to match engine's and transmission's with years, and I have created this spreadsheet to help me.

***DISCLAIMER***
This is information I have gleaned mostly from Wikipedia, so DON'T TRUST IT AS GOSPEL.
***END DISCLAIMER***

There is very little information (so far) on early transmissions, and I know some of this stuff may have bleed over onto other years. (i.e. there may be 2001's with 2.3L Lima's and/or 2.3L Duratec's). If there is anything on this that is WRONG or if you can help me fill in missing information, please do and I'll make the corrections.

Ken, yes I'm a little anal, why do you ask?

wow, great compilation!
only thing I noticed is the 4.0's are a single overhead cam design (SOHC), not dual
