V-8 tech, but your looking at an outrageous project. Stick with small block.....big block is overkill

Ford does not categorize its engines using the big/small block nomenclature. Rather, Ford literature distinguishes engine by its series, or family.
That being said. you need to be more specific than "big block" on which motor you are wanting to install 462? 460? 430? 429? 428? 427? 410? 406? 400? 390? 383? 360? 352? 351M?

^True, If your really serious about doing something this big, then drop a Boss 429 SCJ, literally the baddest motor Ford ever built way back when. My uncle has 1 of very few sitting in his garage....probably never to be used
Just saying it would be a awesome idea if you could get ahold of one.

I dont think his mom will be pleased with him attempting to install a Boss 429 in her ranger, clearance issues is an understatement

There is a guy who was on this site at one time by the name SuperSplash who had a regular cab splash with a built 460 in it. Was a pretty bad *** little truck. Might still be able to find some info on his build if you search.

466 cubic inches is entirely way to much in Ranger, no point. You don't need that much low end torque. I would rather build a 351 stroker than waste the time on a big block, chances are with all the high end torque the small block has a better shot against a big block any day in the long run. Just my opinion.\

BTW....i'm a Ford guy and always will be, but I love my dodges for one reason and that's for Cummins diesel, if Ford had Cummins then F... Dodge. lol

That works for me too, lol. I will pick a 351 over any motor besides a 429 SCJ, but those are impossible to get ahold of, unless your me!
