Smile Hello fellow Ranger enthusiasts

I found this site after I Googled "swapping from a 2.3 to a 3.0". Glad to know there are a bunch of you I can get answers about my Ranger from. I've got a '93 SuperCab that I really like except for the fact that it will hardly get out of its own way. Not bad for around town, but on the highway -- well, you know. I'm also considering installing a performance chip to cure its anemia. My questions may already be answered in the forum so I'll cruise around and see what I can find. Keep the greasy side down y'all!

Welcome!

Only one problem I see here...you want to swap in a 3.slow? If you insist on replacing the 2.3, i'd shoot for a 4.0 or maybe even a 5.0.

5.0 sounds good WyldeChild but I didn't plan to spend that much cheddar. I'd have to put in heavier springs to offset that goofy looking camber it'll have after putting in a heavier engine. I'll need a different trans. and probably a different rear end too. Whole lotta work for a daily driver.
