How Strong?

I PICKED UP A 5.0 FOR MY 86 2WD RANGER AND WAS GUNNA USE THE STOCK RANGER TRANNY WITH A DUAL FRICTION CLUTCH. MY QUESTION IS HOW LONG DO YOU THINK THE RANGER TRANNY WILL LAST WITH JUST A STOCK 5 LITER?

PROBABLY NOT TOO LONG IF YOUR GOING TO SMACK ON THE GAS PEDAL ALOT, BUT IF YOUR LOOKING FOR A STANDARD DRIVE BY THING WITHOUT TOO MUCH OFFROADING< WHATEVER TRANNY YOU CAN FIND THAT WILL WORK WELL WITH IT AND HOOKUP RIGHT SHOULD DO THE TRICK< YOU"LL GET A DECENT AMOUNT OF HORSEPOWER BUT IT SHOULDNT BE ENOUGH TO SNAP ANYTHING IN THE TRANNY.


Yeah, caps is annoying eh?

well....i think the case will split in half with the way I drive. You'll probably be snapping input shafts in no time.
