Hi I just got a 92 Ranger 3.0L 5spd yesterday. Its a regular cab truck. It runs great and seems to have plenty of power. Im going to do the TC mod this afternoon or tomorrow. Im in northeast arkansas, been a mechanic for almost 20yrs. Im in numerous clubs, love turbos, and Nitrous. Id rather work on an auto than drive it, but I do love drag racing. Im using this truck to drive to work daily.


Steven

Welcome to the forum! Buying a truck one day, turbocharging it the next sounds like you don't miss a beat lol.

Got any pics of the truck?

Anything else planned for it?

Well this truck is just going to be my daily driver. I dont plan on doing much to it yet. Maybe some 1.7 rockers and some ported heads. I also have alot of slack in the shifter so a trans rebuild may be needed. Otherwise it runs great now but it needs some attention in the interior.

I know you said it's your daily driver, but do you plan to take it to the drag strip at all (for fun of course)?

You never know, if I can get this clutch adjusted.. It is all the way to the top before it engages so no speed shifting with out some slip. Ive just been taking it easy. Here are a couple pictures.. nothing special..

It looks like it can't wait to see a drag strip!
