For a long time I've wanted to see a 5.4L swap into a Ranger, can't think of a better truck it should be done too. I wish buying a wrecked 5.4L vehicle here didn't cost so much or I would be right behind you. Please keep us updated, these kind of projects make me giggle like a school girl, good luck zabeard and NicksterSVT, couldn't pick a better duo.

Any reason for wanting the 4V and not a "simple" 3v with a roushcharger kit on it. Oh wait that would be easy and you are Zach, lol. I guess they make SCer kits for the 4V too (mustangs). Nice find. I wish you lived closer to FL so I could watch the progress.

The neighborhood wasnt too bad, we didnt have too much trouble, it could have been worse I suppose. LOL

I think the supercharger is spoken for so you would be 3rd in line? I dont know when all this will be for sale. (time wise)

I hope to have the Navigator down there this summer. Then the ranger before next winter. Depends on cash flow, and time off.

ah I dont know for sure, besides the 3v is in the 04+ which they made even different wiring changes, atleast with this around 2000 some of the wiring might be similar to the ranger/explorer. The 3v motor only makes 10 more hp and I am sure when we are done with the motor that we will get over 10 more hp and TQ.

I want it to be over 400 ft/lbs of TQ, so we will see what we can do.
