You can sell it on ebay to buy a supercharger made for a ranger?

A turbo that big will run on any of the ranger motors. And it will have major boost. The downside is where it spools. It will take big rpm to get that thing to spin. Expect lag. The HX35 is as big as most 2.3t guys go.

OLD THREAD! thanx jak!lul

The HX35 is too big for the 2.3t unless you're a full on drag racer.
The HX40 is WAY too big for our trucks unless you're a full on drag racer.

ibtl?

Woops. Sorry.

HX35 is NOT too big for a 2.3 It will spool around 3-3.5k. Which means power when you want it, mileage when you dont.

No worries Jak.

the hx35 on a 2.3 is just a little big for street truck. You're not really gonna get power from it during normal day to day driving. If you look on any 2.3t forum, the guys running it want to switch turbos because its just not practical. 99.9% of 2.3t powered vehicles are purely street, hence why i claim its too big.

Well, I like turborangerforums.com.
It's super popular over there. And while your statistic is correct, that is because 99.9% of 2.3t vehicles are the 2.3's that Fords SVO team put out in the 80's that have the IHI turbo, and 190HP. But yah, if you want all around mild performance, hx35 is too big.

i have built a few turbo setups with holsets. the hx35 is no effiecient at low boost levels. it works best above 17psi. if you only plan on running low boost( under 10psi) it will suck. and you are talking about an even bigger turbo. ideally for a stock 4.0l ranger you should be looking at a t3/04 60 trim. gt28 would be great. instant boost and efficient with the power range you will be limited to.
