I wonder if you built your entire engine up with that stuff, plus screamin demon coil pack and underdog pulleys, exhaust, CAI, and e-fan, how much HP you would actually be pushing.

And, just to remind you:

You have a stick shift. She's done for. You glance back at her through your passenger window and nod towards the photo hut, she stares back through coke bottle glasses and mouths "You're going down sonny." It's on! You honk your horn three times in slow rapid succession and rev up to the 3k limiter, she turns off the OD and poises to stamp down on the skinny pedal with the brute force of a small child. Just as you let off the clutch you here a hollow thud and a bang. The tachometer drops and the truck stalls out. Your clutch slave gave out under the awesome power of the 3.0 and on top of it your trusty Ford 7.5 couldn't handle the tire squealing torque and sheared off the ring gear. You watch in hopeless defeat as the old women madly weaves her way around carts and strollers to the photo hut at excesses of 10 MPH. She coolly pulls up to the photo hut and turns around to head back your way. She makes a victory lap around your broken truck, which is now in flames due to the faulty cruise-control switch, blaring "Tokyo Drift" by the Teriyaki Boyz. She grins and drives away, she has to go feed Mr. Fluffy.

i think youd be lucky to see 250 at the wheels to be honest. better off spending that money on a v8.

Not even close.

That's a little more realistic. However I want to say that for some reason the 3.3kit is only good on the taurus motor.

there is no way you even remotely came close to that. Stock they are rated at 148-154crank horse power depending on the year. The only way anyone has gotten a 3.0 to close to 200whp is with the whipple supercharger and a good tune.

edit:
I just saw you update your sig. You will never see a 30hp gain on a 3.0 from a chip or programmer.

Why shatter the kid's dreams ?
If they want to believe everything they read on the interwebs , let 'em .
Who are we to judge on the misinformation they swallow ?
I am a strong believer in the "more money than brains" philosophy which runs along the lines of Darwinism .
Let them spend their dollars on mods which they 'feel' will make their rig into a super machine.
After all , everybody selling this hypo stuff needs to make a buck to support the system .
You don't want those illegitimate kids going hungry , now do you ?

hey now im just a kid that has pride in his ranger. i dont have the cash now to drop a v8 in it. so im doing what i can with what i have. im not trying to create some super ranger. thats for later on after college. i just want some extra pep and performance. i honestly think its sad that someone has to slay a kid for trying to make a ranger something like yours. guess im on the wrong site

Look dude, I understand where you are coming from. I have a standard cab 4 cylinder Ranger. I have more love, pride, and money into this truck than any high school kid ever should. I have put a bunch of money into this thing, a bunch, seriously. BUT never into the engine. I did normal maintenance stuff on it when i got it then I LET IT GO. My philosophy on it is when it breaks down I will put a bigger engine in. Until then I pick my battles and put my money into things that will benefit me down the road and aren't pissing in the wind. Save your money, give up on the 3.0, and when you have the money, which you will from all that saving you had been doing, you can put a nice 5.0 in.

i hear what your saying. i just want a little more grunt out of it. it made a pretty nice difference just doing the things ive done. i beat my friends honda prelude si with it. im just going to do the remaining things on my work in progress list minus the tuner probably on my signature then be done with it. future plans are to paint black cherry metallic, 18inch rockstars, 4wd swap, ford 9inch rear with posi, the new beast coyote 5.0 and maybe procharged, lower it 2inches with belltech sport suspension. that or ive been flirting with the idea of the 4cyl powerstroke. however the modifying route goes, i know ill never part with this truck. ive been in love with it since my dad bought it brand new, knowing it would be mine when i turned 16.

your horsepower rating seems a little exaggerated.

when my current project car is done, i will be building a 3.0 for my ranger. the heads will be worked, the intake will be worked and it will hopefully have the nice morana 2 butterfly throttle body. Im still only expecting 200-210 hp out of that set up and ill have alot more into in than a cherry bomb, a MAF tweaker for burning holes in my pistons and pulleys

So you going to do a 4x4 conversion and SAS it with a 9 inch then lower it 2 inches and drop a brand new 400hp $10k Mustang V8 in it.

You're clueless and I am done with this thread cause trolls are trollin'

very interested in how your going to make the d35 handle speeds above 50 with over 400hp on ttb. but im sure your sicky gnargnar rockstars will make up for it while your racinz hella fast cuz which your laptop warning you about your intake welds while you blast past yo friends weak h22a equipped bb4 doin a buck fitty learnt form teh brian'o'conner skool of being kool.


your ranger got killed by the lude if you just said civic we all would have believed you. that or your friend is even more magical behind the wheel then you behind a keyboard.

We're not trying to knock you man, but your spiting out a lot of stuff right now. Just focus on what you can do right now that wont break the bank. Save the money you we're wanting to drop in the 3.0 and just keep it running good until your out of school working a good job. Nothing wrong with modding it, but a lot of what you've been saying is exaggerated and we are just trying to make sure your properly informed so you dont get screwed while trying to build your truck into whatever you want it to be.

i wonder how much hp a 3.0 block can take?... it would be hilarious to see a World series 3.0 block that could take 900hp in a ranger with twin turbos and 300 shot of nitrous haha put that in a rail!

the rockers on there intrigue me. ive always wanted some.

x2, now I agree the responses were alil much but you are spitting out alot of info that doesnt make alot of sense. I realize your prolly just throwing out ideas and not really meaning thats exactly what you plan to do but if you could try and reread and go through your posts before you submit them. I even have to go back and edit and change mine from time to time and mine are just about all 100 percent serious posts. That way you can save yourself alot of trouble that you will recieve on here and other forums. Its the nature of the game and if you posts info like that whether kidding or not, there will be someone that will flame you for it. Whether its right or not, just the way it goes. So with your post of SAS'n then lowering it down, putting in the new coyote motor which would be almost impossible and the fact that it is over 10 grand for the motor alone is obviously not the best post, but again your prolly just throwing out ideas. Just keep buying what you want, its your truck and your money. But it'd be best to run your ideas through guys on the forums and such that are knowledgeable and to help you spend your money the best way.

Thinking out the best way to type your post out and editing them before you submit can go a long way with you having a good experience using internet forums. Good luck, if you need any help or more info feel free to ask.

op: there is a thread that came up recently. A 4.0 ohv with heads, and a few other mods (i think cams too?) with 191rwhp.

a 3.0 with a supercharger would probably be close to that as well.


and for what its worth, edgewannabe (brenton i believe was his name) had/has a 96 stang (4.6) with pi heads and cams, a 100 shot of nitrous and made 330 rwhp
