I say upgrade the MAF and lean toward getting a Throttle Body in the future. It's a great investment. A friend of mine runs bigger injectors in his, but its superchargered. I would think they would waste more fuel than help out.

If you do, get a good place to tune it, if not, there will not be as much of a power gain and could dump to much fuel into it. And I mean like a performace shop, not a handheld programmer Good luck, let me know how it works. I was thinking about putting some in my truck, but as soon as I can get my hands on a wreck car with a 3.5L EcoBoost, it's going into my Ranger. :DDDD

Oh tell me about it, and the little honda boys, lmao! Got pulled for going 103 in a 40mph zone racing a Toyota. They didn't pull him because I was in first, lmao. Still didn't even get a ticket lol Chevy's are a joke, I destroyed a 5.3 long bed one day, next light he didn't even make eye contact with me. <- Yes, he was 'trying' to race me..

Waste of money on a stock engine, butt dyno is useless to me.

If you want to dump cash into an OHV, cam, headers, throttle body, full exhuast, and for a 93 a chip. Any one single mod is kinda a waste, this engine is really staved for air not fuel.

All the cold air kits for rangers are just fancy good breathing air filters not a single one will pull air from any other place than behind the headlight.
