ranger engine swap
how hard is it to put a ford 302 in a 1998 ranger 4x4? i have a spare 3 liter engine and 5 speed tranny in my garage
how hard is it to get rid of your ranger and get a toyota? jk, i'm not sure how much room u have under the hood of those, but it really shouldnt b to diff to fit a 3 liter engine in there if u know wht ur doing
Not sure about a 4x4 setup or if possible, but I put a 5.0 in my rwd 89 ranger I drove my jr year in high school. Was not hard with a 2wd! 4wd has quite a bit more involved in the swap.
yeah thats kind of what im thinkin thanks man
Go over to www.TheRangerStation.com they have more info than you will be able to digest.
im not sure what kind of engine they have in the later models if its a the same mounting style as the v6 mustang id just do the 4.6 swap do the cobra engine. because i know the mustangs k-members in those years were quite a bit different and caused oil pan clearance issues. therefore ud have to change the k-member not to hard but even more money. i'd look into it before u tear into it. because if it does turn out u have the same mounting style as the the mustang then it might just be worth ur while to go to a scrap yard and buy a gt 4.6 or cobra 4.6L engine. do a rebuild and slap it in. if not go for a 351 same as a 302 same size block and heads just more displacement. but i have no idea i helped a friend of mine put a 302 in a 87 ran like a striped ass ape was alot easier then a 1st gen 350 in a 96 S10. lol.
haha yeah im thinkin about it, a 350 s10 swap is easy as shit
wicked shit, thats not 4x4 is it?
thats so badass my buddy has the same thing except its only a 350 and it does 4 wheel burnouts but a 383 thats even hornier
