btw what did you do for an exhaust?
Daaamn, if you come across another one PM me haha

Right now i have stock downpipes to the trans crossmember, then two glasspacks. Then i have them both exiting at a 90 degree angle infront of the passenger tire. The glass packs are staggered to make them fit. I personally love the sound, and if i get on it then off real fast the exhaust crackles...I like that haha

Figured out the oil pressure, it was the sensor luckily. Now looking at a tranny/transfer case swap.

I think I have about 4k miles on it.

Just read this thread and it has a ton of useful information. I'm getting ready to do this swap myself to my ranger 2.3 5 spd. Planning on using a T5 and a turbo coupe slave bearing with the factory clutch master. I'm going to keep reading and searching around to get more info before I start the swap. Might go ahead and pick up the engine while they are easy to find and cheap. My truck is not 4wd, so I'm not so sure how much will apply. I just wanted to say thanks for taking the time to document this and for all the others that chimed in with info. Cool truck you have now!

I think you 2wd guys have to do something different with the motor mounts. I think an adapter plate is needed? other than that its the same swap

No problem, good luck with your swap.

Small update: Now that I work in a garage I have access to a nice exhaust bender. Me and the other mechanic are going to redo my done pipes, all the way back. 2.5 duals into a dual in single out muffler with a 3 inch stock exit tail pipe.
