218 is a bit high. Your ranger makes 207 horsepower and 238 pound-feet of torque. Im still not convinced that you are making 299. Do you have a dyno sheet?

Upgrades that made it to 299HP
Intake (K&N 57i Series FIPK Intake)
JBA Ceramic Coated Titanium Headers
Magnaflow High Flow Cats
Electronic Actuator Dump Valve (exhaust dump, hehe)
750cc Bosch Fuel Injectors
MSD 6AL Ignition Controller
MSD Coil Wires (8.5mm)
NGK Platinum Plugs
Diablosport Custom Tuner/Programmer
I run 93 Octane and fuel octane booster in every fill up
I run full synthetic oil
299HP is actually kind of low...
ditch those NGK's and you'll pick up a bit of power.

And yes 207 is stock HP at the crank. Get a dyno sheet or i call BS, i have half that and would be lucky to see 245HP from my 4.0 SOHC.

Just to put your posted numbers of 299hp & 317lb ft tq. into perspective...the Explorer Express supercharger has been on the dyno by Four Wheeler magazine & it put up results of 225hp and 257lb ft tq. @ the wheels (they estimated 270 hp and 308 lb-ft of torque at the engine when you consider a 20-percent drivetrain loss). The RP Caster kit is advertised as having dyno results of 216hp and 250lb ft tq. @ the wheels on his own website.

This is all with forced induction....not glorified bolt on’s like the majority of people have (including me).

Clearly - the dyno you used is so far out of whack it's not even funny.

You must eat a lot of baloney sandwiches, because either that's all you've been fed or that's all your speaking right now.

Stock ranger is 207hp and from the mods you have listed you "might" be near 240-250hp max.

MIGHT being the key word...and that's assuming we are talking flywheel horsepower and not how a dyno usually states things - as wheel horsepower.

So at the wheels, again assuming a 20-percent drivetrain loss you are saying he would be 'lucky' to get about 200hp...and I even question that a little...probably more like in the 185-190hp range @ the wheels - tops.

Either way...still miles from what he states.

When in stock form it would be more like 140-150ish to the wheels..which matches up with the proof given here by '04RangerDave' of having a decent list of bolt-on parts and only hitting 175hp @ the wheels.

You loose power thru your drive train 20-30% drive-train loss, thus the results i posted are accurate. All my runs where done in manual second gear selected (auto) which is actually 3rd gear and those are the WHP results.

Okay - Update

Used a trailer dyno, and the guy that let me try my truck out on it told me he fabricated the test results, so yea I probably am pushing around 230 max, and okay guys, maybe I don't have some of those modifications, want to know the real truth.
I have owned 11 vehicles in my life, and I am only 21 - I have had such bad luck with breakdowns and broken parts, now I have a Ranger which stays strong (considering it is built Ford tough) and has lasted me longer than all my other vehicles have.
The real deal, thought it would be cool, but I can barely keep up with my auto payments on my truck as it is:
Mods: (if you can call them mods)
K&N Drop-In Lay-Flat High-Flow Air Filter (never have to replace it, just oil it)
Air Box Mod (removed silencer, and cut entire bottom of the box off for ram air (not cold air))
Flowmaster 50 Series muffler (for sound, not for performance, 50 series is three chambered, nice aggressive sound, pulled a noob move and sawzalled slices in it for a better V8 sound (sounds more like a ******* civic)
And next week I am installing one of those LED brake light thingies that goes under the tailgate...
Happy all? -

And to all, I am talking engine HP not wheel, it comes stock 207hp, 228 or whatever TQ

LMAO no, no depression meds for me, had my fill of those in high school and they all sucked. I hope to do one of those brake light LED bars this week hopefully if I have enough money, and then replace my stock third brake light with a smoked LED one

thank you for finally admitting everything was total b.s. realistically though with all the mods you have actually done to the truck, filter, exhaust... you would be lucky if you picked up another 10hp at the crank.

So on a trailer dyno you were able to determine your fly wheel horsepower? I'm sorry but I think you expected people to believe more of your story.

EDIT: I see where you told us all that you lied haha you honestly would have gotten more respect from people if you said that you're broke and have a fairly stock truck. None of us started out with modded vehicles anyway. Nor are any of us rich and rolling around in mods.

I would guess you have so much trouble with your vehicles because you do nonsensical **** to them like chopping off half your airbox "for ram air" and hollowing out a brand new muffler "for a V8 sound". Take advantage of these forums to learn what works and stop hacking up your truck

Not really surprised to hear this... We really don't care what your truck is like, new/old/stock/modded whatever. We all had a stock truck at somepoint. Just tell the truth next time.

Wow did you seriously just call me a kid? lol I'm almost 22

And the reason people are nice is because they understand, oh yea and by the way, I have Autism, so that makes it a little different too.
