Re: 2000 3.0 ranger v8 swap

Turns out it's the back passenger side plug on the trans for all the solenoids. Not compatible with a '00 explorer 5.0 motor even though that's what I told them when I ordered it....90 day warranty,...

Re: f150 to ranger full conversion

Not to thread jack but I got a quick question...from my research I've seen most f150 rear ends are around 65 1/8" wide, most ranger is 58 1/2". When I long travel my truck I want a wider rear end...

Re: 2000 3.0 ranger v8 swap

Cool. Thought so.

Do you know if I need a new mass air for this type build or would I be able to control that with the SCT Livewire ts+ ? Checked out C&L performance's stuff but wasn't sure what I...

Re: 2000 3.0 ranger v8 swap

I see. Didn't think they would work anyways.

What about this...for ~$100 more you can get headers for the left side that flow 2 into 1 rather than 3 into 1 like the cheap one. See what I mean?...

Re: 2000 3.0 ranger v8 swap

Lol dudes a joke...back on the header search...other dude wanted 750 for those TM's but man that's pricey.

Re: 2000 3.0 ranger v8 swap

Bump....what's a good offer for some once used FRPP 9430-e52's? Dudes asking 500 plus shipping. Seems like a straight rip off since they retailed for $309, and torque monsters are going for a tick...

Re: 2000 3.0 ranger v8 swap

Has anyone done headers outside the frame rails on a 98+ 2wd ranger? Dudes being difficult about shipping for those TM's. Wants a money order instead of PayPal. Ridiculous. Checking local shops to...

Re: 2000 3.0 ranger v8 swap

Then it's safe to say that, unless the aftermarket heads have identical exhaust ports, they wont work. Looks like no matter what I'm either going to have to have headers made or just buy some TM's....

Re: 2000 3.0 ranger v8 swap

Really? Guess I could start with them and see how they are. I'm going aftermarket heads though...will those work since the stock are P heads?



Tempting but $750 lol

Re: 2000 3.0 ranger v8 swap

Am I able to just take the components to ford, or would I have to have them in vehicle? Would prefer to tow this the least amount of places possible lol. Probably just going to have some headers...

Hey all. Been searching forums for a while now but just haven't posted. Got nearly everything (I think) figured out for this 3.0 to 5.0 swap. One thing I'm still lost on though is what headers to go...
