Questions about a Street/Racing Ranger

Im getting alot of mods for my ford ranger and i want to know what kind of power and speed im looking at as well as MPG and just looks in general and i have some questions.

Engine Mods:

BBK 66MM Throttle Body
Pulstar Spark Plugs
Accel Ignition Super Coils
JBA Plug Wires
Magna Flow Cat-Back Exhaust
JBA Long Tube Headers
Magnaflow Catalytic Converter
K&N FIPK CAI
Taylor Cable Helix Throttle Body Spacer

Misc Mods:

Yukon Gear&Axle Master Bearing Overhaul
Kicker CS-series
Subwoofer Enclosure with 2 10" MTX Terminator subwoofers
Spyder Headlights&Taillights
All Synthetic Oil
3" Nerf Bars
Performance Brakes
Flex-a-Lite E-Fan
Jet Module
Jet Performance Programmer
Pro Comp Alloy Wheels

My big questions are:

What are my 0-60 & 0-100 times going to be and top speed?

Are performance pulleys worth it and are they compatible since there for a Chevy 283-350CI?

Are there any performance Crankshafts i could get?

What Hyper-Eutectic Piston,Piston Rings,Rod Bearings, Main Bearing Sizes should i get? .010 .020 .030

If i get a super charger should it be 8PSI or 10PSI and will the Hyper-Eutectic Pistons hold up to it?

What are some extra performance mods i may have missed im hoping for over 300HP and hopefully more.

Even with some major, major work, you'll probably never get 300hp out of a 4.0. It would take a lot more money and mods than it's worth to still have a 4.0 IMO (probably $7-10k).

If you want power and speed, do what I did. It's in the sig.

Will this have some performance boosts though over stock and what about a super charger?

Would all these mods plus a 4.3L stroker and a 8PSI Vortech supercharger make over 300HP? Or at least what kind of HP gains would i be looking at as well as 0-60 and 0-100 times?

As far as times go, I have no idea. Here are some good places to start researching what you need to do:

300 hp 4.0 sohc - Ford Explorer and Ranger Forums "Serious Explorations"

Jakee's 4.0 SOHC Build up discussion and motivation thread - Ford Explorer and Ranger Forums "Serious Explorations"

It's doable, but to me, not really worth it. It's your truck and money though; I'm only here to help you get there. 5.0s have tons more potential and it's much easier to get the power you want, at least after the swap is done. Not to mention swapping the trans and rear end (if you don't already have an 8.8) which you have to during the 5.0 swap will give you a much stronger drivetrain to handle the extra hp and torque.

No, might get close to 230HP, I have read claims of 275HP from a 4.0l, but never seen any proof of it.
4.0l OHV is 160HP stock and in PERFECT running order
4.3l stoker kit added maybe 30HP, added more torque(longer stroke = better torque)
M90 super charger could add another 35HP

0-60 or 0-100 MPH are power to weight results not horse power
80HP engine in a go-kart would turn in some pretty respectable times, lol.

I think a stock 4.0l OHV in a 4x4 Ranger would be in the 10-11 second range for 0-60 if running well, 2WD 9-10 seconds
You have a stock Ranger, why not find out what it can do now so at least you have a baseline for future changes.

Overall the 4.0l OHV engine is really not a good platform to start with if you want to make a racing engine, 302/5.0l engines were good platforms
5.0l mustang engines are getting close to the 1,000HP mark, these are the newer style Coyote 5.0l which starts at about 400HP normal aspirated
