trade or build further??
have a 2000 ranger 4.0 0hv 5 speed..happy with it til comes time to tow my boat..wondering if should trade towards a newer 4.0 sohc ( supposed to have at least 40 hp more) or a standard cab/ short box full size with a 8..either way must have a 4x4... blue book says my ranger is worth $5000 as a trade..was thinking of getting a set of ported heads but at $1600 unsure wise investment- always heard the heads and cam are the biggest limited factors in the ohv and because want power in the lower rpm range- doubt a cam would help me in me in anyway..wish ford dumped a 8 in the ranger or a diesel I'd be sold!
ah 4.0L. the power of a 4 banger the mileage of an 8.
