4 to 6 swap begins

I started this engine for my Fiero GT, but am soon selling the car. The ranger is getting old, and plenty of miles. 03 Ranger 2wd 2.3 XLT model. I have a dune buggy now, and soon a boat. So in the hunt for more torque, this 4.3 was found in a corner of my garage. 1995 Semi-Vortec 4.3(190hp version)30k miles and it was free from a family member with all service history, Converting over to MPI style injectors, new fuel rails, 440CC injectors, Series II eaton blower (from a 3.8L Buick engine) and new made from scratch steel upper intake. Once the UIM is good i'll remake from aluminum. The blower was just sitting on the LIM for curiosity, and to see how the pulleys would line up. one problem will be the T/B, since its on the back. I will be useing a GM manual trans, for ease of swap, aftermarket options, and the truck is already a 5 speed. ECU will be a GM 7730 with the Syclone mapping modified. One detail is making it all work with the gauges. but the swap will begin soon enough.

so far I only have 200$ in the entire build. so thats why I chose this engine. The truck will stay stock for the most part, body wise. I did order Sensi-Trac shocks, and Max Air for the rear. Just somthin for the Dune buggy and Boat.
