If only we all knew what was going on, back in Bob’s Garage.

Bigger is always better !

AND yes I do not think I have seen a better build or modified Ranger, clean well thought out changes and executed with experience and accuracy far beyond anything I have ever done.

Another AND Bob is one of the good guys that will help you with a problem and with info you can count on.

I'm a new guy. I've been looking at the forum for a couple of days and love what I see. This thread is just what I was looking for. I have an 02 Edge and thinking of doing a 302 swap to hall my 75 Noton Commando around.

Well done on your swap!

Chuck

Just me, but search it out.
This is a great thread about a member's 5.0 project not a where to find a 4.0.
Start a new thread about your ambitions for a Ranger, get responses and ask questions.

Sorry for being abrupt but I for one do not like it when someone changes a thread to their own topic.

state inspection

Hey Bob: what a great endeavor you are undertaking. you will have an awesome vehicle when done !
I have thought of installing a 5.0 but was concerned about inspection time. I am in North Carolina and each year we have to hook to a computer that is connected to the state capital. Does Michigan have any requirements about year of engine vs year of vehicle and emissions ?
