You can get a 4bt for 3000 with a manual tranny...

Should I just get a F-150 with an Ecoboost and somehow make it look like a Ranger?
Look up eco boost raptor. Forgot who did it but its probably the scariest off road truck ever!

Yeah but you gotta completely redo your front suspension to hold the weight and power. Plus you gotta make your frame stronger so it doesn't bend when you accel to 1500 rpms. Plus gauges, computer tools, fabrication, time, tools, other parts. Its not as easy as it may seem

No one said it was easy but its worth it. Its a 4 banger couldn't be that heavy...

I had plans on doing a 4BT but after I read on how much money it would take, I dropped those plans lol

I already have a GS350 AWD on standby, I want a RWD Manual. Good for zipping around Minneapolis and St Paul.
