If yours is a 94, obd1, tuning is easy. look up Stinger Performance's Pimp. That's what I will be running when I do my swap. Also with it being a 94, if you can find a running longblock you can swap...

Re: What is your MPG (200k+ engines)

I've got a '94 2.3 5spd with 210k on it. I've taken a few interstate trips with it, and was getting around 25-28 mpg. However, the rings are suspect to be shot as I've got oil dripping out of the...

With the 4" lift coils, I'm assuming the drop brackets he's talking about are the brackets to move down your beams since you have the twin I-beam setup. You can look around for more kits, there's a...

Re: 4 cyl Lima turbo engine swap

Oh okay, in that case yes....it wouldn't be a bad move to pick up say an e6 used and turbo. There's plenty of people that are selling knock off headers on there as well, which from what I hear have...

Re: turbo

My best suggestion is to join up and start reading. Theres plenty of builds over there from mild to wild and will give you a good idea of what you're looking at to get to the level you want to be at.

The eBay setups are junk. I'm currently in this process now. If his truck was obd 1 the turbo engine route would be the better choice. I paid $250 for a complete runner when I bought mine and it's in...

Your best option is to replace the internals with forged ones. It would be a nightmare to try and use the TC motor, because it's OBD 1 and yours is OBD 2. if you're wanting to turbo, the best way to...

Re: 12v swap.

Re: Twin turbo mods?

When I had my 3.0, i mounted a 6" box fan at the beginning of the intake tube paired with a couple of tornadoes. HP gain was unreal!

But really, if you're wanting to turbo a ranger your best...

Re: International 2.5L V6 Diesel conversion?

Just remember that even if you upgrade the drivetrain for the towing, you still have a compact truck suspension/brakes/etc. Just something to think about before you have too big of expectations.

Re: V8 ranger

the swap will be a little confusing but the best way would be the drivetrain swap. Probably the best thing you can do is to read around on other forum sites through other peoples swap threads and go...

Re: V8 ranger

You can take the pats box out, but it has to be towed to a dealership and reflashed iirc. And the first thing you need to do is get a DD if you want this to become a project truck, because this isn't...

Re: Thinking about selling the Bronco and Ranger

I'd say do it even if it has the 6.0. They can be fixed to never have a problem again. I couldn't ever find the deal on the right superduty so I settled for a 95 to get the 7.3. If I had it to do...

Re: want to swap the 5 speed from a 93 f350 into my ranger

iirc, the transmission sits too far forward, making it hard to shift into 1st, 3rd, and 5th without hitting the dash and I'm not sure about the xfer case. I could be wrong though.

Re: Street bikes!

Look on craigslist. I wanted a 600 but found a zx750 for a deal I couldn't resist. Although you're looking at the wrong time of the year for cheap. If you hang on to your 2k you can get a nicer bike...

Re: what diesel motor is better

and they're super hard to find, and for the price of one of those you could have an obs 7.3. Sorry, but I'm not paying the 3-5k that most people want for their diesel rangers. Especially considering...

Sweet, I'd love to do something similar to mine, but found the best option for me was to buy a diesel. Let us know how it turns out for sure

Re: what diesel motor is better

I do believe that International dropped out of the deal somewhere during the 6.0 period. When the 7.3 was produced, IH/Navistar were a pair and to my knowledge the 6.4 was solely navistar

Re: what diesel motor is better
