that is the only kit out for the ranger.

RPCaster makes a kit but I heard getting a tune for it is a bare.

The EE kit is on my truck and its truly a complete kit.

its the stock rails and line on my system. I take it that gauge reads fuel pressure? I was told its best to read it on the back of the fuel rail ??

anyway I was just curious what you had going on or how it connects to the fuel rail.

its the black rubber line that looks like it is coming out of the reservoir cap on the power steering.

I have an M90 that my dad and I are putting on my beater 2.3L. It is all custom fab though, kits are boring.

yeah it reads fuel pressure and the one in the cab is connected to the back of the fuel rail..The fuel rails are different than the stock ones and the braided line just hooks up to the ends of the rails.

I had the M90 ready to go I just needed the manifold kit but I decided not to use it since my engine has high miles and the tranny sucks. I'm sure the extra 60hp gain would have destroyed 1st gear.

You have an auto. I have the sh!tty 5 speed. Also I'd rather spend my money on a car that will actually go fast.

16 second truck to a 15 second truck? Not worth it. Well maybe if I was 2wd but still.

Well here is the thing smog is a b!tch out here. The RP kit wont pass but the EE will. The problem with the EE kit is what you get for the price just isn't worth it to me. I could have probably found someone to pass my truck with the RP kit but for extra money. Also I don't need a broken truck. If I had a second car I probably would have done it.
