Cold air intake doesn't do anything.
Install a nitrous kit or a s/c and you'll see a big difference.

this thread is silly! "how do i make my car go faster?" meaning.... faster than 55? faster than 70? faster than 100?.... faster than a Ferrari?
first off you have a truck, not a car. 2nd, your too vague on what you want.

Look in either Nicks or my profiles. That should answer your questions and with good examples.

Some people on this site are stupid and do not like to answer questions.

If you want a fast Ranger youre going to have to do extensive engine modifications.

Like D. said, check out his and Nicks profile.

Rip out your whole interior, and anything on the outside you don't need for it to be street legal.

not a good way to get advice... cold air doesn't do anything noticeable.. would need more info to give better suggestions...ie if looking for more low end and don't mind losing top speed...gears best bang for buck

i got 1996 V6 3L with one engine mod (mass air flow sensor),a new grille, new head unit, 4 new speakers,but now im thinking bout the engine and what can be done. im not doing a cold air intake cause its too much of a hassle for my truck and its not worth it. i was thinking a TBS but im hearing they suck, now im thinking new headers, but they seem impossible to find, the ones i did find were like $650, but the 4L ones were like $275, which pisses me off. one of my boys told me i should do titanium pistons and rings, which i know nothing about. should i raise my truck and save for new rims & tires before i do engine mods.

i'd do the lift kit and wheels before any engine mods...imo pistons/ rings not worth it personally had bad luck with a tuner but most people here had good luck with them...past that...exhaust, underdrive pulley and maybe efan...i think fred has quite a few hings for the 3.0 vulcan if not mistaken... though VERY hard to make a ranger competitive short of some kind of forced induction ie turbo supercharger or nitrous or going to a v8 imo
