Underdrive pulley is available for the '93 and '94 model.
You may think about getting some traction. With the manual you can gain some speed on the launch. It would probably be pretty worthwhile. James Duff Traction Bars and some sticky tires would go a long way.

theoretically a turbo can get better gas mileage than stock. With forced induction your motor can run upwards of 100% volumetric effeciency...

i'm wondering about that turbo kit, is it for reals, i mean is it meant for OUR rangers or turbo fords with 2.3's? cause that intake manifold looks like its made for a car like the ford probe but i think the probe is a 2.2, and is that company on ebay legit i mean no address, no phone number, what the hell? that seems like a scam to me, read all the feedback, good shippingbut chinese crap in all of em, makes me wonder, i wouldnt mind having it or paying that much if it was real though

Dont' buy ss autochrome. Their manifolds crack and turbos fall apart...do some research and you will find plenty of posts sayin how their product doesn't last. Do some research on turbocharging a n/a 2.3. You can use internals from a turbo motor on ur n/a motor
