Default Hello yall from down south!!

Just found the forum and wanted to join up as I've been looking to meet a few other Ranger people that enjoy their trucks a little more than just using it for a dailt driver!

I have a 1994 Mazda B2300 2.3L 5spd, 2wd, single cab toy. I am in the process of building a 2.3L turbo engine for it with all the goodies......

Head...
1.89" stainless intake and 1.59" inconel exhaust valves, p&p head, B0-Port 2.5 stage cam, double springs, powder coated turbo coupe valver cover, stainless tubular header w/external waste gate, HE351CW turbo, Stinger Performance turbo oil feed and return line, ported lower intake with custom rotated upper, 90mm lightning MAF, 72lb injectors, Esslinger adjustable cam gear and wide belt pulley kit, 31x12x3 fmic, 38mm WG, 3" IC piping, 4" down pipe, 3" exhaust, Magnaflo 3" muffler, Moates QuarterHorse J3 chip/tuning software

Short Block....
'93 2.3L Ranger block .030" over bores, Crower Sportsman 5.2" rods w/ARP rod bolts, Diamond Racing forged dished pistons w/full floating pins, ARP head studs, Esslinger windage tray, balanced factory crank,

Interior....
replaced vynal bench seat with '99 60/40 cloth seats, Hurst shifter, added floor cup holders from a '93 Splash, added all interior pieces behind seats (rear speakers, speaker panels, rear cab carpeting), pioneer head unit, Autometer boost, tach, oil pressure, gauges (fuel pressure and wide band to come yet),

Chassis...
DJM Dream Beams, 2" Eibach coils, Doestch 2" drop shocks up front & DJM 4" flip kit w/Doestch shocks out back, '98 Explorer 8.8" 3.73ls and discs, '96 spindles w/ '04 Sport Trac rotors and Gumby custom made brackets, Illusive Fabrications trans crossmember, soon to have Summit Racing 1 1/4" front sway bar, '99-'00 Cobra silver 5 spoke wheels,

Well thats about all that comes to mind right now, but I'm sure i've missed a few things. No secrets here!! It started as a budget 87-88 turbo coupe engine swap and quickly turned into another one of my typical "projects". I use the truck as a daily driver to and from work when I'm not riding my '05 CBR100RR and not fighting the morning traffic as we all know too well! I look forward to hopefully meeting a few members and learning some new things!!!
