You should probably not be driving like an idiot while the truck is registered to someone other than you, which it is at the moment. And presumably it is insured to someone else as well concidering it is registered to someone else. Not to mention the whole killing yourself and others routine. Maybe you haven't been reading the news around here lately?

Though I must admit it is funny that you are "drag racing" a stock 3.0. Are you engaging a grandma out for a sunday drive in her buick?

Far enough away that it is unlikely you will kill me in the process of killing yourself or someone else. I'll have to keep an ear out to TPD though. When I hear them run 3CR853 and give the operator a summons, I'll probably laugh out loud a little.

You should stop worrying about speed mods for your pickup truck and find something useful to spend your money on while you learn how to drive a bit more.

And then this part had me laughing..

one of my boys told me i should do titanium pistons and rings, which i know nothing about.
Titanium pistons?!?!? Rings?!?!?! Most pistons are either forged or cast Aluminums or lightweight steel/tri-molys. Titanium?!?!?

Do you know what Titanium costs? Let alone the cost for 6 pistons?!?! All 6 of which a Machine shop would have to custom mill?

Tell your ' Boys ' to stop smoking crack, put away the Fast-n-Furious DVD box set and read a book!

should i raise my truck and save for new rims & tires before i do engine mods.
For starters :

Your lugging around a Stereo and a full interior. If you were serious about going fast, you would put the ' pig ' ( Thats what I call my truck ) on a Diet. Its a legendary calculation that every 100lbs = 0.010 of a second in a Quarter mile. Its not far from the truth. Fast vehicles are usually light and nimble. Horsepower and Torque mean nothing when carting around extra weight.

If your going to go Fast, remember you need to eventually STOP! This means you don't want ' rimz and bling dawg ', you want a light weight wheel with a decent tire that will carry less inertia or reciprocating mass.

There has been only 1 3.0L Vulcan equipped truck I have ever seen worth mentioning. It was fully machined, has a Wet Nitrous setup and the guy was sponsored by Rick Morana racing.

Let me tell you! It was soooooo fast, it just about caught a STOCK 4.0Sohc equipped Ranger.

Build a 302 if you want to go fast or if you have a really stuffed wallet, you can waste your time like Nick and Myself did blowing up engines, superchargers, Manifolds.. I think Nick is presently screwing around with a Turbo of some sorts..

V6's are TOYS, the ones made by ford shouldn't be taken seriously.

Field intelligence. And it isn't nearly as messed up as it will be when that someone "looking up your sh%t" is the police officer behind you ordering a tow truck to impound your truck.

Alright, I'm gonna say it before anyone else does. You're a little wigger who wants his truck to be the "shiznit" so it could beat all you're boys in their '92 stock Del Sol's.....right? Right.

D. and FireRanger are two of the most knowledgeable people here on R-F, so I would listen to what they have to say. Alot worse they could be "busting" people on? Are you serious? Doing 110 are you retarded, especially in a 3.0 Ranger? Grow up man. You have ALOT to learn before you should be driving 110 and talking to D. and FireRanger like their one of your "boyz".

For future reference, be mature in your posts. Punctuate correctly. Makes you look a "hella" lot smarter and more mature than the "yo thats ****ed up" B-S you post.

Have a good night.

I have a few words for you.

You're a ****ing moron.

Just because the highway is not patrolled doesn't mean it's not illegal. And you're dumb enough to post **** on the internet about it like you're being kick ***.

For starters, you're driving a Ranger. Come on, kid. Are you expecting to be able to race that tuned out supra with a ****ing pickup truck with headers?

Then, you act like you aren't even concerned about the safety of others, saying you don't drive fast enough to kill anybody (basically). At any speed, you can kill somebody who may be walking down the road because their car went into the ditch when they were swerving to miss a deer (I've seen it happen), or a person taking a walk that may live on the road.

My advice: Go **** yourself.

Under drive pulley's won't add that much power, nor will headers. If you are going to do engine mods, one won't cut it.

Headers will net you some more horsepower if you also go with a more free flowing exhaust (whether you replace the cat converter or just completely get rid of it is up to you, although, that could be illegal in your state).

Why waste money on a Ranger to make it go faster if you plan on lifting it?

I can already see the next thread: "How can I get better gas mileage out of my lifted and heavily modified street racing bad *** Ranger, fo shizzle?".

The thread will start with what mods you have done, and how your gas mileage has suffered quite a bit.

Some will reply saying you need to change your driving habits.

Then you will say something about how your "boys" told you to go with some titanium gas lines, as they net you better fuel economy, and more speed.

Now your lying. Funny though. How stupid do you think we are. I'll give you a hint. Not as stupid as you at the present moment. This could be worthy of a sticky just so everyone can see it and get a chuckle.
