Yes, you can still run the coil packs with this setup. You might have to modify the bracket slightly, but I highly doubt it. It should bolt right on. That cam may require tuning. The only way to find out for sure is to put it in and try it. Since it is a newer MAF system, it should learn and take to the cam just fine. But its not guaranteed. All I can really say is get it and try it. If it runs bad, a minor tune will fix it.

by tune you mean a chip or somehting like that or re tune the ecm
Im looking at these headers http://www.summitracing.com/parts/BBK-15290/ any thoughts?
The stock 96 expo heads are the gt-40's correct? So they have the straight or angled plugs?

The 96 GT-40s have the same plug angle as any generic 5.0/302. It's the 97 1/4 and up Ex 5.0 that has the GT-40P heads with the unique angle.

Quick check: 3 ridges in the end of the head casting = GT40; 4 ridges = GT40P.

Sure, assuming that they clear everything else in the engine bay. Lucklily for you, the 97-back bay is a little more open than the 98+. There are aftermarket conversion headers made especially for 97-back 5.0 Ranger swaps.

Why run those headers? Im 99% sure they won't clear. I think somebody on RPS tried to use those same ones and they simply would not wok, too many things in the way like the frame and steering shaft. Just get the Ranger swap headers so that you KNOW they will work lol. They aren't really any more expensive than those. But hey, maybe you should try them so if they work I can get the ones designed for the P heads instead of spending $700 on torque monsters! Lol.

Also, stay away from the fuel cell. You will have a hard time adapting your evap system to work with it.

I have to get rid off my stock tank to clear the transfer case with it being reg cab short bed and the drive train being longer. Unless the drive train is the same length as the stock drive train but ive heard its about a foot longer all together?

If you run the stock Ranger BW1354 case behind the Ex 5.0 and 4R70W using the correct Advance Adapters kit, the Ranger t-case will be in the same place as stock.

If you do something like change to a full size t-case or use a longer transmission, it will lengthen it.

You could also run a BII or E-150 gas tank that would fit where the spare tire originally was if you don't want to go with a full fuel cell. Also you asked a long time ago, but i'm running L&L headers on my truck.

I got my transfer case today its a manual shift BW-1356 out off a 87 f-150 manual I6 it has the vss in the case so thats also a plus and i got the front and rear shafts all for $75 bucks. Not to bad i dont think.

Well all cylinders have between 115 PSI and 145PSI so thats pretty close ran into a problem though i snapped off a plug in the head but i think ill be able to use an easy out hopefully or ill have to take it to a machine shop.
Any advice to remove broken plugs?
http://www.summitracing.com/parts/BM...6/?image=large Will i need this bracket for the ratchet shifter its for a AOD is the AOD the same as the 4R70W's? Will that bracket work for the trans i have?

Badge looks good. Are you going to run the AOD trans? I had horrible luck with the AOD in my truck. I blew up more than I care to remember, and your planning more HP than I have.

When i put the L&L oil filter relocation on do i have to keep the oil cooler that is right before the filter? I can just take it off and run a regular coolant hose and then bolt the oil filter straight to the relocation kit right?
