And a throttle body spacer on any modern truck is about as useful as a NOS sticker. The msds ignition is awesome on a boosted truck worthless on anything less. Hell with a programmer the stock ignition does great with a supercharger. High flow o2 sensors are as big a gimmick as the throttle body spacer so no if you would read you have picked all the infomercial parts that do nothing for a vehicle. Oh and go ahead and cut the cats off google the fine for that one. They are also a high flow oem cat from the factory high flow magnacraps again accomplish nothing. Know something else cut the entire exhaust off see what that does for low end torque, mpg's, federal law, and to top it off high rpm valve float. Its a fucking awesome way to destroy a modern engine.

No these things are not "a good start". They are not a start at all. They do nothing at all.

No, it didn't do anything. A throttle body spacer and fake intake does not do anything. I believe you that you think it did something. But I'm telling you it is all in your imagination.

Yep. The Ranger wasn't built for speed or power. By the time you go to do anything you'll spend a fortune and all of the so called "little things" that you can do, will add up very quickly.

Dollar for Dollar, the most cost effective "upgrades" would be a V-8 or Cummins swap. Beyond that, accept the Ranger for what it is, an inexpensive workhorse. If you absolutely must have Ford perfomance, then you should be looking at a Mustang. The Ranger was not built for speed.
