Shit, I would just get the 3.7 v6 w/ 300hp. I'd get 150more HP with the same mpgs, now thats badass.

Ha! I know right! It would be pretty sick.
Who would expect a ranger to peel away at the red light from an older mustang?

The 4.6 DOHC, 5.0 DOHC and 5.4L SOHC all fit under powerdome hood of a Ranger I am sure with a little creativity you could stuff a 3.5L V6 turbo. The 3.7L almost seems like it would be easy.

Yeah but it's gonna weigh less and better mpg's and I'm pretty sure you put more boost and get a few more hp before you have to build up the bottom end

Actually the ecoboost I4 2.0l gets 247hp with 265 torque. A generous step up of power and fuel economy. Personally I'd prefer it in the little focus ST though.
