insane thoughts

Has anyone ever thought of doing something absolutely ridiculous to their ranger?

Like putting in a blown boss 429? Or a stroked 460 (500+ cubic inch bigblock) with nitrous and a supercharger? You could bet a full aluminum 460 block so it wouldn't be all that heavy. That would be insane!!! Someone should do it.

I thought about putting a jet engine in my truck. Then i realized that I had to get to work in 2 hours and really needed to sober up.

Cool idea? of course! feasible? possibly... if you've got the money and the time and the know-how! Or atleast the money...

That would mean I'd have more money than brains.....

Otherwise there would be some stupid impulse purchases...

I like the idea of the v-10 that would be amazing to see. I have seen lots of 5.0 mods done.

Hello, been lurking for a bit. This is my first post, my second will be my introduction. I'm building a SEFI COPed 429/ZF 5-speed for my 1990 SASed FW ranger. Gonna be a fun toy.

Nah, a build thread takes waaaayyyy too much time. Between work, women and all my projects, I barely have enough time for the net. I'll answer anyone's questions with pictures if I can though.
