I know this is an old post. But subscribed. Starting a swap on my 98 2wd ranger next month.

Update: ranger blew up the tranny, I guess 305k was its limit,plus I beat the shit outta it lol... I had the pcm tuned to the motor and the auto trans codes deleted. Now in the process of getting a t5 to put in. After that I willl be going all out with suspension, right now my main plan is improving the overall handling so I will be lowering it and it will be getting IRS in the rear, I'm super excited for this can't wait for it to go into action!

Wow time flies but I'd thought I'd fire up the only device that still works this app but I did get the t5 rebuilt and put in, my hydrolic clutch system was leaking and I was having problems with it fully disengaging the clutch... But I was able to drive it for a while only to realize that apparently t5s are weak as hell and third gear loves to start to die, so with that the truck was able to do a nasty burn out leaving my graduation and also a burnout contest at the Cletus and cars car show in Bradenton fl ( you can see it on YouTube) but since then I have parked it and not touched it for about a year now, I think when I get back from college I'll bring it back to its former glory! LoL

Nice job. I plan on pretty much the exact same build. But I have the torsion bar setup so it should go ok.

Either you were making too much torque for the T5 or you had a weak/improperly built, or worn out T5. Mine gets beat on daily and it handles it with ease. With 4:10 gears I'm shifting a ton as well. The T5 gets a bad rap from guys running 4cyl T5's or older, badly worn units. But built correctly, it's a great transmission that can hold it's own.
