Re: 2005 Ford Ranger 3.0L POWER UPGRADES NEEDED
you must drive like a ruh-tard to get 12 mpg. i hvae a volant intake, magnaflow catback, and 80k miles on my truck. i can get 17-19mpg with my 33" tires. no need to floor it to a red light. like said, there isn't much you can do to a 3.0 to make it fast, this motor is made as a work horse. you can try to find a supercharger used for it (no one makes a new one) but that'll run you easily $2000. or check out moranav6racing.com to check out his parts for the 3.0. either way though, spending money on a cam, roller rockers, stroker kit, or any "go fast" parts for this engine will leave you broke, and with a truck that's still slower than a 4.0 swap.
