Make sure your head gasket is still good. If I were you, I would do the head gasket as well to save you the headache later on since that will probably be the next thing to go.

I bought my newest ranger for 300. It's an 87 4 x 4 standard cab with dual tanks. I hated almost everything on it when I bought it. I have a lot of work in it. I plan my projects by what I hate the most. I hate not having wind wings today and have most parts to convert it.

Took my air box out, pulled apart the snorkel and disposed it. Cut open a bigger hole for more air. Also cleaned the mass air sensor. It really woke it up

You should get a K&N replacement filter. Not the intake. The throttle sounds a bit more "throaty" under a load.

Hate that every time I clean my wheels or tires, I go to drive and it slings dirt back onto the tire and wheel.... I need to take them off and clean the inside of the wheel

Same here, or it throws it on the body. (Which looks awful on black paint)
