Well I just joined the other day so I am new here. I have a 89 ranger xlt 4x4 with a 2.9 5 speed. I have put alot of work in the engine and it WILL RUN. Have problems just starting off without spinning the tires sometimes I would guess it is running around 250-275 horses now it started with 140;.
Well most of mine was done before I bought it but I have done some things (valve bodie,cold air intake system,had heads ported,put 3" exaust on it). Still drive 75 or under most of the time I drive like a old lady.
