2.9L vers 3.0L

You guessed it, I'm new to the Ranger world. I bought an '88 XLT with the 2.9L in it. Whats the main differince between the 2.9L and the newer 3.0L? Yea I know, " 0.1L " but what else? Carburation, ignition, etc...?

Thanks!

If you were thinking they might be the same engine family they are not. Other than being fuel injected v6's they really share nothing with each other.

I have owned both and I think the 3.0 is a smoother motor that lacks power up top and my 2.9 seems to like to rev alot more and make good power in higher rpms. They both have either pros and cons but given a choice I think I would pick my 2.9 over a 3.0
