Would be a great addition for a ranger, but the only way I would consider it is if the truck is 04+ because its already a PITA to do any kind of swap with them lol. If you own a 03 and older just go 5.0 and keep it simple.
It's '11 and good effin' luck. Talk about a very spendy swap from now and the next couple years. A couple things are for sure......REALLY expensive engine....REALLY expensive trans....REALLY expensive all-custom tuning....FUN wiring.
Sure would be one hell of a neat swap in a reg cab short bed ranger though. I'd love to tackle it one way. I friggin' love the way 350z/370z's sound and the new 'Stang motor sounds just like 'em with exhaust.
