Yes you can turbo the 97 ranger. youll need a programmer for the computer. And yes the header will work, the pistons will work BUT the rods and crack wont because the turbo coupes have large journal cranks and the ranger have small journal cranks. Go to turborangerforums.com and they have ALL the imfo youll need to do it right!
