Just installed the resonator from a 1994 Cougar in place of my muffler, has better flow than ANY muffler outside of a full race header mount bullet muffler.

Installing my electric fan this weekend, and then I'll be ordering MSD coils and wires hopefully next week as well as trying to find a BII rear sway bar.

looking good man, i cant sum paying $250 for a crappy window install....mine broke as well, but i paid $50 for glass and did it myself, got it to roll up and down perfectly too

im curious as to who did the P/P on the head and intake because i want to get mine done as well form my old motor.

well keep it up man, ill be keeping an eye on this thread. we'll have to get a meet going soon cause im outside of houston!!

P.S. have you thought about putting a nice header on there from a 97? i have one, its a 4 to 1 tubular header thats going on my engine as well, i got it for $40, and i know it out-flows stock supremely!!

That fan is a pretty good fit on that radiator, did you end up using the one from the Cougar?

Did the port & polish myself, may not be as good as the pro's but it's still a lot better than stock. I'm thinking of getting the Hooker Super Comp Truck Series header when I order my high flow cat.

Yep! Turns out the the Cougar has the same exact radiator mounts as the Ranger. Just need to get the relay kit with thermostat.

Yeah lol, I'm a bit of a perfectionist. I armor-alled all the panels and that actually made everything more than twice as dark!!!

Getting pictures tonight!

Amor All'ed the interior, and fell in love with how deep and dark it made the black panels look!

Also removed my CherryBomb Turbo muffler and replaced it with the resonator from a 94 Cougar. Much louder!

Only problem is that it's now TOO loud for my mic on my camera LOL.

And I finally took some pictures of the back half of my frame. I need to do some touch up, but that'll have to wait till next week.

Well that's all for this week. Next week will be getting a Bronco II rear sway bar and installing the electric fan.

Heck yeah! But it'll set me back a pretty penny at $375, and the Dynatech high flow cat $169 And that is the EGR bung
