Squires Turbo 4.0 (250-313 rwhp)

I did some searches and didnt see anything revelant. It might be a repost though. Anyways, they make 2 different turbos for the 4.0 and they make some awesome rwhp.

heres the link

most of their set up likes this are right around $5000...which is about right and not too shabby

I've done it all. Blower, nitrous, & turbos. Turbo is the way to go for a daily driver IMO. You get stock milage, don't have to worry about nitrous problems, and the power is awsome. Only down side is that it's very expensive. Can easily cost you more than replacing the motor.

Will this system even fit on a Ranger? I know the Procharger doesn't fit, and I am not about to spend 5g on this to see it not fit good at all.

I'm not 100% sure that kit would work on a Ranger but STS does make a universal kit that will work on mostly anything.

Thats rear wheel power. I don't think thats bad at all. I use my truck for what trucks are made for, so that kind of safe usable power would work well for me, too bad I am broke...lol

thats only like 380 at the crank. stock is 205, sure its a decent jump but for 5 grand? thats 13.4ish per hp...not very cost effective.

Insurance/boneyard explorer.. 2500$ max. A cam, some heads and a few Misc Parts.. v8 torque with more reliability/stronger block/crank/rods.

Lotsa change to buy the boys some beer too!

^^^LOL... Only problem is, you have to be knowledgeable enough to do that kind of swap, and sadly I am not... :)

Also worth noting.. power comes at a price. Pushing a *stock 4.0L* to nearly double it's stock power output is going to take a toll. If it lives.. it's life will not be too long. A built 4.0L motor or a V8 can make the same power and do it for years.

Gotta pay to play.

If you really want to make cheap power and have it last? ***Ramp up** nitrous to more than a 50shot.

Stock SOHN bottom ends are good for 350HP, the block for 400 as the oilpan acts as a nice stud-girdle. Anything beyond that.. its not going to last long at all.

A STOCK Ford 302 block is good for 500/500 right off the assembly line.

turbos are the neato factor. 5.0 is the smart factor.

I thought I was smart. Yeah.. I'll try a M90 supercharger.. Wound up giving it away for nothing to ScottyG or Gerry or someone.. Wasn't all I thought it would be. I tried a procharger PS1C.. Same results.. Still didn't have the 'umph' I wanted.. Juice? Yeah, all flavors and variations..

Having 2 less cylinders is like going to a stag party without your pair of ' boys ', your driving an impotent Eunuch.

Theres NO replacement for displacement, I wasted over 5 grand remembering such.

The stock bottom ends can take atleast 350 whp. Our Cologne engines have hypereutectic pistons (meh) but we do have forged rods. I used to have a 4.0 Mustang, the ideal turbo for the 4.0 is the Powerhouse turbo.

http://www.powerhouse411.com/

It's made up 450 whp on 4.0 Mustangs, with stock motors.

No The Rangers got the Mazda M50D-R1. You would have to get adapters to fit the T5.

thats a rear mounted turbo setup..

IMO, to get it working and tuned for a 4.0 is a waste of time.

now if you wanted to do a motor swap with turbo, id look into a mustang/turbocoupe 2.3, or just a built v8. Its not worth it for a 4.0

Yes, it's a PITA with the rear-setup, but nonetheless it has still given 4.0's in Mustangs 450whp. A guy on the Mustang Forums runs about 400hp on his, has 50k miles, with no problems.

I don't mean to be a hater, but these ' 6-packs ' aren't like that KEG of 302. They only go so far..

A slightly modified ( heads/cam/intake/exhaust/bolt-on whatever ) 302 will THUMP our 6-packs. I've tried, even on the happyness of laughing gas, its tough.

They start pulling and its over.
