No, might get close to 230HP, I have read claims of 275HP from a 4.0l, but never seen any proof of it.
4.0l OHV is 160HP stock and in PERFECT running order
4.3l stoker kit added maybe 30HP, added more torque(longer stroke = better torque)
M90 super charger could add another 35HP
0-60 or 0-100 MPH are power to weight results not horse power
80HP engine in a go-kart would turn in some pretty respectable times, lol.
I think a stock 4.0l OHV in a 4x4 Ranger would be in the 10-11 second range for 0-60 if running well, 2WD 9-10 seconds
You have a stock Ranger, why not find out what it can do now so at least you have a baseline for future changes.
Overall the 4.0l OHV engine is really not a good platform to start with if you want to make a racing engine, 302/5.0l engines were good platforms
5.0l mustang engines are getting close to the 1,000HP mark, these are the newer style Coyote 5.0l which starts at about 400HP normal aspirated
