Duratec performance

So, I was curiously poking around (Don't currently have a Ranger, just shopping until I find one suitable for my needs) and I ran across a link for CrowerCams. I was under the impression that the 2.3...

Re: 2.5 Turbo and model differences

Thanks. I think I'll check it out. The forum has all but died since I was a member. I'm still going to actively search and stay as a member but I think you're right. Also, someone may want to pass...

Re: 2.5 Turbo and model differences

From what I've been told, the 2.5's have the same forged rods as the 2.3t's and all things considered, the 2.3t's pistons should fit without much if any modification. With that being said, I was more...

2.5 Turbo and model differences

So, it's been some time since I've been back on the forum. Mostly because I've acquired a few vehicles that were...sad...not Rangers (Grand Cherokee, a couple F350's and...God have mercy on my...

Re: 90 Ranger 2.3T pre-swapped

I'm sorry about the misunderstanding on the heads. I was curious if anyone was aware of the 2.3 turbo and N/A having any heads. I've read and heard from a few people that stated that those heads were...

Re: gas price check

Here in Somerset, KY gas went from 2.15 over a month ago, and went to 2.35 for about 3 weeks, dropped to 2.20 and sky rocketed to the now 2.65-2.73 a gallon. It takes a month for the prices to drop 5...

Re: 90 Ranger 2.3T pre-swapped

I've only seen a few 2.5's out there. I started checking that website out that was linked...they have a lot. Lol, funny enough. I couldn't really find much on the 2.3T cam wise through numerous...

Re: Buying my first Ranger - advice appreciated

Yeah, if you're looking for a newer Ranger the Sport models were really nice and have the tall ride high and knobby tires. Where they have TSC as described they would do really well. Especially if...

Re: 90 Ranger 2.3T pre-swapped

Anyone know where to get aftermarket higher lobe cams? Also, it's a 90. Anyone know if a 8.8 with a LSD would work with the stock 5 speed transmission and driveshaft?

Re: 4 cylinder automatic power

I'm going to jump in here for a minute. Myself, I've owned a 3L powered Ranger and I owned a 4L powered Explorer. Yes, the 4L has more power. BUT, it's such a PITA to work on it's not even funny. And...

Re: 90 Ranger 2.3T pre-swapped

That's what I'm thinking. It's been a little project of his for 2 or 3 years and it eventually got parked in a storage unit. The body is straight and the engine seems to run strong. I'm just so...

Re: 90 Ranger 2.3T pre-swapped

True. I really wonder if anyones mounted the SVO intercooler through the hood. A lot of people say it sucks because like Subaru's it's over top of a hot header. But my solution would be is to just...

Re: 90 Ranger 2.3T pre-swapped

That's why I'm like a kid in a candy store with this truck. I miss my old Ranger but I've been kind of hesitant because instead of using the stock SVO head, he used the factory 2 plug and just ported...

Re: 2.3L 4 cyl, is it enough?

I'll chime in a bit to also defend each engine choice as I've owned all at one point or another in some form. Overall I have to say the 3.0 OHV Vulcan is a sweetheart and one of my most favorite...

Re: Is The Ranger Market Crazy?

I've looked at a couple Rangers. I was almost going to by a 2007 extended cab 2wd Sport for 15k and the thing didn't even have AC! This truck was as base as it gets which is really sad honestly...
