I got a call today from work and they told me to call the local UPS automotive shop. I called them and they said that they will be swinging a 4bt out of a package car because of miles. Nothing wrong with it, just that it is due for an engine based on miles. I had expressed interest in getting one of the engines as a project for down the road to put in my Ranger. Welp, they said pay the core charge and it was all mine!!!
Cummins Ranger is well on its way. But I am going to rebuild it and modify it first. Not to mention I want to get the suspension done first.
2003 Ford Ranger EDGE4x4
K&N FIPK, Spec Clutch, Hurst Billet Plus Shifter, Trac-Lok, 18x9 Saleen Wheels, 255x45x18 BF Goodrich T/A KDWs, Nascar Graphics, Westin Grille Guard, Chrome Ford Taillight accents, Rhino Liner, 20% Tint, Clear Corners, Silverstars in Heads and Fogs
The engine is sitting at work right now :) Gonna need some work. I have ordered an overhaul kit for it through work to have it there when I need it. It is really causing a stir at work as well. People know what I have planned for it too :)
Yeah, not to mention the 370 marine injectors that I have sitting in the toolbox for it already.
I am going to continue working on this as time and money allows. Hopefully I will be able to get ahold of Sheid's Diesel and get a cam made up for it as well as oversize fuel lines and some pump work done.
Sounds like a good project. You should do a NV3550 or something similar. As for the engine, list some details. Not overly familiar with this. What is the max torque, etc.. Electronically controlled or mechanical? Turbo charged I assume? Sounds like fun.
I had looked into putting an International Powerstroke 3.0L 4cyl (from SA Ranger) in my Ranger prior to the 351W, but it just got way too expensive way too fast for what I was getting.
