I'm not to worried about the time but what am I looking at is the mounting of the motor how much is involved in swapping them out. Motor mounts, stuff like that

im sure there will be a lot of extensive fabrication, maybe even a whole front frame section, im not sure how the frames have changed since then, you may be better off with a body swap to a wrecked newer ranger.

Honestly I don't think it's ever been done. I do know that isn't not hard to get a working 5.0 into an 87 ford ranger, with working heater, ac, all power components. So I doubt it's too hard, The only problem I see is all the wiring.

It would probably be easier and cheaper to put a V8 in it.I think you can buy alot of the mounts,brackets,headers ,ETC. prefabbed for a v8 swap.

Ok I'll let it go then there was a 4.0 on ebay for 100 bucks with 25000 miles and comes with the computer. I could use a newer motor something with some more ballz.
