What did I do to my Ford Ranger today?
I emptied out all my soda cans, cigarette butts, and clothing; steam cleaned the carpet, put in air fresheners, and then put all my clothing and other stuff back in. Can't tell you how many people said I should clean my truck sometime soon. I did however spend about 4.5 hours detailing the outside and engine bay.

Then you can play with it from their and do the little sneaky stuff that will make you have more power that smog guys won't notice. Your 2wd so it's not like you have to find a tranny that will have to work for a 4wd. Either that or just do a v8 swap. Soooo much info on here or tons of other sites that will help you get the knowledge you need on getting a v8's into rangers.
where i live in illinois doesnt inspect vehicles and where id like to move in missouri doesnt inpect vehicles 5 years old or older so i think im safe since it will be 2 to 3 years before i move to missouri anyway. My reasoning for a turbo is to keep the 4banger and just see what i can get out of it. I know im gonna lose gas mileage but i wanna keep the 4banger in it. if i get another ranger sometime after my insurance goes back down then ill likely do a v8 swap in it.

Heater core

I just got done changing a heater core on a 1997 Ranger. Those of you who have done this know what I went through.

I changed my oil. Used valvoline full synthetic for the first time. I also got this Lucas oil injector cleaner- has anyone used it did they notice a difference? It was only a couple bucks so no big deal. I installed a kenwood hd radio headunit and alpine speakers the other day and hey sound great I'm really excited about that
