check this site out for info on rpcasters m90 kit.

http://www.rangerpowersports.com/forum/

or go the explorer express website to check out their kit.

http://www.explorerexpress.com/

that should get you started.

these are only for the SOHC motors, if you have an OHV engine you will have to do some fab work as there aren't any available kits that I know of right now.

at least he can drool over those until one shows up for the OHV.

If you read this thread you would know that me and stone were refering to the OHV kit that is in development by RPCaster.

Whoa dude, lets ease off the douchebaggary eh?


But to the OP, if you are going to go through all the trouble of swapping to a SOHC and the slapping on some forced induction, why not get a 5.0? And then slap a charger on there.

He's a 94, finding an exploder 5.0 that is from a newer truck shouldn't be a problem, but like you said, some people don't want a v8 (if you want power, I have no idea why).

I applaud you on even making a ranger with a 351 last lol. I know I wouldn't (I have an addiction to the skinny pedal, just ask my tires). Look at this swap:
https://www.ranger-forums.com/forum2...ad.php?t=44326

He also used a S/C

https://www.ranger-forums.com/forum2...ad.php?t=71722

His axel is holding up, mind you he doesn't really abuse his stuff. He has an 8.8 31 spline axel in it, and it is holding up.

Lets just say, if I had your truck, I would swap a 5.0 in, just because it is easier in that generation, and you have way way more potential.

4.0 would be cool just for the fact that not a whole lot of people have done it.

I see it as everyone wants a 5.0. Why not be different? I see a blown 2.3 in another thread. That is cool.
