killer mark killer. I did drive a Ranger before with a 5.0 and you'll love the hell out of it. You'll have like a 54 to 46 power to weight ratio and it will indeed flat out fly. Congrats my friend and enjoy.

Can't remember the detail on your setup. For trans, I used the explorer 4R70W and the explorer shift cable. All bolted right up. For a C4, not sure.

If you used explorer EFI engine, use the explorer throttle cable and bracket - bolts right in.

You need to run a fuel system that delivers about 5~10 PSI to the carb. Your stock 02 EFI pump is regulated to 65 PSI! You don't need a return line if you run a pump designed for a carburetor.

If you want to keep the stock 65 PSI pump, you would need a special conversion regulator and a return line. The return line would need to be fabbed and added.

Either way, you would need to get creative.

yea..i got the fuel regulator which i can adjust, so i ran the fuel line to the IN port of the regulator. then i ran a line from the OUT port to the carb.

now i found out that my regulator has an extra OUT port for the excess fuel. So now i have to connect a line from the extra OUT port running all the way back to my tank and that will act as my return line.

Ok so my other question is... when i run the return line back to the tank,i would have to drill a hole in my tank and put the return line in that hole at the top of the tank?

O yea..and how easy is it to take off my bed?

remove 6 bolts and call a few friends to lift if off.

oh yea, disconnect the fuel fill neck, and take the wires off the tail lights, that should be it.

ok cool. sounds pretty easy. thanx.

now for the fuel again... i think theres two options for the return line...tell me wha you think or jus say hell no u dumba$$ what are you thinking.lol.

1) i can run the line directly to the tank by driiling a hole into the tank and putting it in.

or...

2) i can run the line back to my V6 return line thats connected to my fuel filter ( basically unplug the return line out of the filter and connect it to my return line coming from the regulator).

Check out B&M's site, last time I was Megashifter shopping they had shifter linkage diagrams (stock and shifter adapter diagrams) on their page in .PDF format. Probably have to download an installation manual.
