performance parts! help!

i have a 1995 ranger with a V6 and cant seem to find any performance parts for it. i have looked at jegs racing, jc whiteny, summit racing and more. i have talked to a few of those places and they said that there were two years that ford (1994 and 1995) made and there were no aftermarket performance parts for those years. if u know of any places or options that i could do please let me know.

I don't think you have an intake choice but that's fine since stock is cold air. Take the baffle or snorkel for more sound. There is a cam out there too. There engines aren't really made to be fast or powerful just reliable. Here is a good site: http://www.moranav6racing.com/catego...?CategoryID=32

Neither of these helped you any.

If you want to go fast buy something fast.

You can do a lot to a Ranger but the problem is that there aren't many companies that make products for it and to make a considerable power increase you would have to spend quite a bit of $$$$$.

Companies have slowly stopped making parts for it. Only one lift kit was out for the 98 and up 4wd trucks since RCD stopped making their kit.

The OHV 4.0L is a great engine, it will last forever if taken care of and it shines in low end torque. It doesn't rev high so intake and exhaust are pretty much a waste for it. Your k&n intake is probably causing you to pull warmer air than the stock intake too.
I never looked but you could probably get a tuner/programmer to make some extra power with it. Some poeple like electric fans and under drive pulleys that reduce the parasitic load on the engine, but I liked the reliability without that stuff.

Honestly I think for long term reliability and usability in a truck, I would probably take the OHV version of the 4.0L over the SOHC they have now.

If you want something fast get a car.
