it's different, a diesel and can make gobs of torque. go look on a dub forum. those guys are getting crazy numbers, excellent mileage and running of french fry oil.
according to your post #24, you like being unique.


wouldn't the coyote motor be like swapping a 4.6? if you have ac, you'd have to make the room?

Im sure it would but no matter what I do, I can expect to pay big for it. And what some guys dont understand on here is: yea you can be like every other guy and put a supercharged 5.0 in a ranger and make oodles of power... and get 12 mpg on premium fuel!
Or I can get a EcoBoost, or like you said powerstroke, and get 30+ mpg. Iv seen a guy put a built Cummins in a 2 door short bed Ram 1500 and get 50 mpg on the highway
Not to mention, if I did get a diesel, I would get the pleasure of blowing black smoke and doing 4 wheel drive burnouts :)

4 bangers aren't making 235lbs of torque therefore it would be an easy and good upgrade for them :P

and doing 4 wheel drive burnouts :)

LOLZ with the stock drive train I'd love to see someone pop the clutch with more than 200lbs of torque to the ground and try to burn out. All you'd see\hear is a few snaps and an engine free revving :D

just fyi to fit a powerstroke in a ranger is alot of work. a guy put a 6.0 in one for his drag truck on here and there was quite of bit of fab work just to get the motor to somewhat fit lol.

Diesels blow smoke until the turbo winds up. Its not a bad thing. Its proof that youve got power under the hood. It has nothing to do with tuning or incomplete combustion. If that was true, then every single built diesel truck has crappy tuning and bad combustion. Ever watched truck pulls?
Its like muscle cars: it doesnt lowp (or however you spell it) because of bad timing. It lowps bcause youve got power :)

How about installing a 2011-up Mustang 3.7L (300HP) V6 with either the 6-speed or the 6R80 auto into a Ranger? Ford does not offer a Control Pak for the 3.7L V6, but I just heard that HP Tuners can now remove the PATS and turn "off" any unwanted CAN communications with unwanted modules. Or, Step up to a 5.0L Coyote, same wring approach should work.
