Why the 4.0? Why pick an engine that was never designed for boost and boost it? To blow it up?

Here is some food for thought. Get a 2.3 Ranger and boost the living hell out of it....







Run's 12's in the 1/4. Is that fast enough for you?

2.3T's are the best bang for the buck! 300hp to the ground easy with minimal parts.


As far as superchargers go on the 4.0, there's the RPCaster Banshee kit that uses an M90 from a Tbird and there's the Explorer Express Xcharger kit. RP caster is $1600 and doesn't include tuner or the charger. EE kit is like $4500.

2.3t FTW!!!

Find yourself a nice reg cab short bed 2.3 (or 2.5 year model 2001-down). And turbo that thing! Depending on what you can find, you can easily put down 300hp. In fact, that is what i'm building up right meow!

Head over to turborangerforums.com and check them out. They are a bunch of awesome guys who know what they're doing.
