If it floats your boat. Do those have forged internals?

What the turbo? I know the focus guys have gone to 12 psi on stock internals. Same motor. The turbo I'm looking at is a T3/T4 Garrett turbo, mounted where the stock muffler is, with the intake coming out of the bed. Truck will have customairbox with tonnoe cover. You guys will see with time. Working with STS turbo systems and Doug @ Bamachips and 4 wheel concepts. Going to be tough I know

Of course the engine. I'd bet they are forged if guys are doing 12psi. Turbo with the intake through the bed? Are you not going to be hauling things? You better deliver on this thread....

Run at least 7/16inch spacers. That is the size i needed and over 9000 other ranger owners with mustang rims on.

Or take some washers out and put them on the lugs and check wheel fit. Keep adding spacers till you don't have clearance issues. When it just fits, take the washers off and measure the thickness....this is the spacer to buy. Mine was 7/16inch.

Oh, i forgot you have aftermarket rims. They must make a little more clearance on them than stock mustang rims. Mine just cleared the mounting nubs for the center cabs with a 7/16....

Is this like a 2wd Ranger problem? Because I put Mustang wheels on my 07 and they fit perfect. No clearance problems at all.
