Just got back from putting 100 miles on it and it feels great!!! The first 50 were with the 91 per. tune, which ran very well in the top end but a little sluggish of the get go. Next 50 were with the 91 tq. tune and wow what a difference off the line, very responsive and quick to getting the higher rpm's. Overall to this point very impressed with kit, kit price and installation. Thanks Ron

Considering this was my first major auto project it wasn't too bad. I did have help from a friend who knows a little bit but that was it. Total hours i would say 20 hrs. But i could do it now in prob. 7-8 hrs... So if your "handy" with a wrench i would say you could do it in that 7-8 hr. time no prob....

You should have no prob. then. And ron is always available through install. So you should check into it if you can. Always fun to see rangers get a little more power!!!

So I'm going to have to replace my coupler and both snout bearings. The blower started making this rattling noise, so i e-mailed ron and he sent me a link http://thunderbirdinfo.blogspot.com/...build-and.html and that sounds like my problem. So ordered the coupler today, and i am trying to find a local bearing shop that might have those snout bearings...I'm gonna try to get this done before the potland/couve meet so i don't sound like a baby rattle with a whine when I get there. Another problem I just thought of is that the drain plug for the s/c is facing the towards the engine when mounted to the ranger, normally it is facing up when on the thunderbird. So stupid question time.when i take out the plug will the oil from the resivour come leaking out, or is the oil lower than this plug?

I think the oil is lower than the plug. Also I remember seeing a kit to mount the plug the other way.

Well now I can't find that oil plug kit. And now that I think about it, the oil might be higher that the plug.

Look at this site for anything that you need for the blower.

So I got the new coupler in today and I'm down to the bearing shop to pick up my snout bearings tomorrow for a total cost of 8.75$ for both front and back bearings. Gotta love,http://www.mcguirebearing.com/ , they had everything I needed, and local too. So I should have the noises gone before meet woot woot.....

My truck has 700 s/c miles on it and is loving the extra air...If anyone is looking to get the rpcaster kit I would highly recommend it. I put it on with 101,xxx miles and engine sounds the same except for that cool little whine.... Btw be sure to save some money for gas cause it's hard to stay out of the throttle...

Yes I am. I don't wanna do the pillar pod style or put them where the ashtray goes. I would like to mount them on either side of the gauge cluster, maybe to the dash with the gauges below the dash.. Btw I have 1 gauge thats 2' and 1 thats 2 5/8'. Any Ideas would help a lot. Trying to get this done before meet.Thanks for the help Shane!!!

You can use the Autometer steering column gauge pod from a 97-?? F150.

Found a pic with it on a Ranger:


Someone asked if it will just bolt in and this was the answer:
