putting 4.3 vortec engines in, and some ballsy
people go for chevy v8s. Looking for whatever

how much money can you spend?

I probably don't want to spend more than 2 grand on the thing.


Look for a donor Ranger/Mazda B series with a V6 from around your year truck.

They didn't start making bseries identical to rangers until 1993, from my understanding they were pretty seperate until that point. Would a ranger v6 still fit?
