The TD Chevy with the bully dog I believe. But thatís about it in this post. I just cant see a 4.0 ranger beat even a stock mustang.
Think about it. The V8 mustang is faster than the V6 that only makes sense, right. Well the new V6 mustang is a 4.0 and if my facts are right they are DOHC. And if I still have my facts straight they're listed at more power than the ranger. Now factor this into the equation. Again if I have my facts right and I think I do. The ranger weighs more than the mustang. Weight is the enemy of any racer regardless of what you are driving or what style of racing youíre performing.
I will gladly recant anything I have said about the comparison of the two vehicles but I have SERIOUS DOUBTS about the ranger VS mustang scenario youíre touting.
Especially if the ranger is a stock or very mildly modified. I consider mildly modified as this, K&N, after market exhaust either cat back or custom, EEC Reprogramming, Gears and possibly even a pulley or set of pulleys. At $3k+ and all the labor just for the added HP of a blower I donít consider a ranger with a blower mildly modified. Not even close.
Now, further history on why I think what I do. I own a 04, 4.0 Ranger, Edge 2wd, with a 5speed, and 3.55 Gears with the stock Ford Traction Lock, and I own a highly modified 86 Mustang that I am done modifying. I could put a blower on the mustang but I would not be able to put the kind of boost into it to really make use of all that money sitting under the hood. Basically I am as hot as I could get just short of having a blower and no way would my ranger even come close to the stang. Except if the race was from the stop light line to the crosswalk closest to you.
I am not busting on you butÖÖ I just donít see it. I cant even make myself see it. Not even close.
