Re: 4.6 anyone

Re: 2.5L engine swap

I would stick with the 2.5 and do some mods to it if your looking for more performance. Its alot of work to do a V6 swap really. I think you should look at turbocharging the 2.5 or supercharging...

Re: Remote Turbo Set Up On A 302?

you could make 500 to 600 hp at the wheels. GT45 is an ebay turbo, and they seam to be pretty good for the 300.00 price tag. Also a 351w will fit just fine. They are a bit wider and need a bit...

Re: What are your top 5 ps3 games...

I like MAG, and Socom, MW2, but I also would like to get the new SOCOM when it comes out, and the racing game I saw a commercial for last night. Can't remember the name or else I would give it.

Re: need help on 302 swap

I would stay auto if I was you. Manuals are harder to setup with the different types of manuals that they did. A M50D is a good tranny but it might be differant than the toyo or mitsu that you have...

Re: Remote Turbo Set Up On A 302?

It is very possible, and it has allready been done. You would want at least 3 inch if not 3.5. Man thing is you want to mount the turbo to the frame rail so its weight is supported. You need to...

I know it does. I have drove by a few high speed collisions in my time. The point is that I did it in a controlled are, and it wasn't like I was zipping in between cars, and putting others at risk,...

Re: 2.3/2.5 rpm....?

205/70R14 at 70 was like 2500 or 2700rpm with 373s or 355s. I could hook it back up to confirm though. This is on a 92 2.3 ranger 5 speed. M50D has a pretty big od IMO.

Re: 4 cyl swap

you would want the C3 or C5 transmission, but not sure they came in a 4x4. I think most 4cly where manuals. I'd just look for an auto for the v6. 4x4 2.3s are very rare. Not sure why ford didn't...

should be like 8 or 10 at an idle. Check with a timing light, and make sure the plastic cover for your belt is tight for a proper read. As far as the rebuild goes, if you do it your self, you could...

Re: Intake Gasket?

It could. They are cheap at napa, and its not that hard to replace. Its also a good time to replace the spark plugs since its pretty much impossible to get at them with the intake on.
