yea, its pretty easy to do on a 2.3L, are you planning on turboing a ranger, all turbo kits are basically the same, but i dont know of any place that has an actual "bolt-on" kit

Cool...I presume a turbo is significantly cheaper than a supercharger.

as compared to what it was orignally, 3199.00, and turbos have much more tunability than a supercharger does but lets not get in another argument like the last turbo thread

I know of a guy who has a twin turbo set up on a 5.0 engine in a ranger but you have to do the whole thing custom.
