Regardless, it's still some nice fab work. Not alot of people have the means to do work that nice by themselves. Those should perform well for sure. Props to you guys..

Is the piece that goes over the four tubes with the o2 bung in it custom made or something pre-made? I'm quite intrigued by it b/c it looks really clean.

That looks awesome. How much work does it take to figure out how to weld the things together to avoid any exhaust leaks?

I have word that it ran for 20 minutes this afternoon. But we have sometype of wiring issue because it appears the PCM quit after 20 min.

Still great news though!!

Were you able to keep some of the Ranger wiring? Or did you have to change everything because of the motor and its PCM?
