It actually wasn't suppose to be sarcasm.. Would be kind of cool to go that fast every day.

Best I have gone is at the limiter. It had a lot more in it for sure, i would suspect another 20+mph........I typically drive 80mph so it isn't much of a strech to get to 93.

113 with Diablosport Trinity Programmer tuned, downhill on the freeway
Wouldn't recommend going much faster than 80 though, being as light as it is

Less restriction in the exhaust without the cats thus allowing hot air to be expelled from the vehicle faster

When I had my 2002 Edge with the 3.Slow, the max I hit was on the toll road between Oklahoma City and Wichita Falls (where the speed limit was 85). I maxed the speed to the governor, and that truck was shaking so badly I thought it was fall apart! The Ranger as is is not designed for speed, no question about that!

When I was younger and less concerned for my wellbeing, I raced Leo from this forum in my '03 Edge 4.0 5 speed, with e-fan, bamachips programmer, Volant or airaid intake(can't remember which I had at the time), and Gibson exhaust. It had a dyno verified 195hp and 219tq. We were running down I-20 in Dallas and I had the speedo maxed out at 120mph while Leo was right with me or slightly pulling on me. Scary stuff but 10yrs makes you realize the ignorance of your youth.
And no, that was not the fastest I have ever been in a street vehicle but it was the fastest I ever went in the Ranger I had.


Oh, and if I had to guess, a guy named Djaye that used to hang around here has probably gone the fastest in an edge-gen ranger. That dude was extreme.

I'm the jerk who finds a big rig and cruises along behind him at 55 trying to get max mileage from my 2.3. At 55 with a long freeway slog I've been over 30 MPG.

Or I can just book along at 70 and get more like 19 MPG...and get somewhere a whole 4 minutes sooner.

And I'm the jerk in that big rig that will cross over the fog line to throw sand and rocks at the front of your car and windshield with my tires because you're following to close..

Who said anything about following too close?

If you're out there trying to cause traffic pileups on freeways that could get a bunch of people killed, (and bragging about it on the internet, no less!) you should be behind bars. That simple.

If you're close enough behind me to be getting any benefit of drafting, you're following to close.

Now if you're 5 or 6 car lengths behind and just using me as a pace vehicle, I have no problem with that.

Who said anything about drafting? Assumption after assumption. What I do is drive in the right-hand lane at a speed that burns less gas. I find a truck that's going about the speed I want to go, and I match it. This means I'm not interfering with anyone else who wants to go faster. There are other lanes for that. I'm not tailgating. I'm not "drafting". I'm just going down the damned road. Horrible, I know.

Did you read my second sentence ? It's in the quote in your last post.
If you're a safe distance behind me and just using me as a pace vehicle, I have no problem with that.
