2005 2.3L Ranger modding?

Hi, does anyone know what I can do to sup up my 2005 2.3L 4cyl. Ranger that's worth the money? I've only added a Flowmaster muffler and that's it. Please reply...

Thanks, Rob

It is not the same engine, There are differences,, but ofcourse anything is possible with enough money and time such as the turbo,,

You can get it tuned..

K&N intakes

THOUGH im not sure exactly what changed between the 01-03 2.3Ls and the 04s+

The BAMA TUNER is worth the money,,
The K&N INTAKE is almost worth the money,, I personaly did not notice any difference besides the cool wooshing sound as it sucks in air at high rpms but it does look sweet,,

For a '05 I would recommend switching to all synthetic lubricants, electric fan, K/N FIPK intake, cat back exhaust(that it looks like you already have) and a bama tuner. That will pretty much give you the most performance and best mpg without spending major $$$.
