Default Looks like I'll be doing turbo

Met a guy who's turbocharged 4 Rangers with the 3L, and he'll be selling a set up off of his personal truck for 1400 and it has 600 miles on it. Though it won't be until next month that I get it since he is on vacation right now.

Also looks like I'm going to switch to electric fans. Found one on Summit racing for about 300 dollars that's a direct bolt in replacement for the mechanical fan.

Are the internals of the engine going to be upgraded? If not you stand the chance of blowing the engine apart. The most PSI you can run will be 5 PSI

Hope he didn't already pay the guy $1400 for a turbo that will explode his engine.
Ok, I lied, I hope he did.
