Default Another new guy to the forum

My name is Thomas and I have aquired a 1996 Ranger 2.3L 5 spd. Its not my first, nor will it be the last. I started with a 1985 Ranger. I also have the "pleasure" of working on my dad's 1994. All of the Rangers I have had have been the 2.3 manual platform. All standard cab short beds. I have recently come into posession of a T3 turbo off of a Volvo740. I know i can get the manifolds from the Turbo Coupes and bolt everything up. Instead, I am going to place it in the rear where the muffler is. I'm going to have a self-contained oil system in the rear and just run coolant lines off the heater control valve. I also plan to move the MAF back to the rear bc I have heard that it is better to have the Maf b4 the turbo istead of after. I would love to hear any comments on the project(good or bad), and ANY advice from previous builds would be appreciated. Wish me luck!!!!
