351w+00 ranger... Help wanted.

Is there anything im gonna need? Ive also got a read end off a f150. But my question is is there any emission laws or restrictions to keep me from doing this in the state of ohio?

Ford Ranger V-8 Engine Swap

It sounds like you will need to modifications to the frame to support the added HP and Torque. Not to mention the rear end and drive shaft.

you need to do some research on v8 swaps. this is not a plug and play swap. if you think you can use your stock PCM for this you got alot to read..go to the v8 section and read
