Awesome job man. What kind of carb is that? It looks like one of those Edelbrock Endurashine 4 barrel carbs, is it one of those by any chance?

What were the biggest modifications you had to do. Cause I'm wanting to do the 5.0 swap in my 94. And idk how snug its going to be in the engine bay. Nice job BTW.

sorry just now geting to this.. dont get on here much... you will need to beat in the pinch weld on the fire wall in the trans tunnel.. will have to fab a trans mount to reach crossmember are just move crossmember forward i didnt fell like messing with grinding rivits so i just made a plate.. you have to cut the core support up so you can tuck the rad up underneath it.. thats the main things im sure their is more but each swap is different you will always run into new things.. check out rangerpowersports.com lots of good info about stuffing a v8 in your ranger and also a list and where to get most of the stuff to make it fit.
