I think a 4.6 would be a great motor for a ranger. Especially a 4.6 termi cobra motor

If you're lucky to find one, probably ~$6000. haha, they are supercharged, and priced right.

Otherwise, you can get a 4.6 dohc out of a lincoln Mark VIII. they are pretty popular to come buy. Then get yourself a tranny out of a mustang and have a 5-speed manual. Probably score that for ~$1000 depending on your area.
