94 and 95

are the 95 2.3 and 94 2.3 the same? i want a cold air intake for my 94 but they only make intakes for 95 2.3 and newer so i was wondering if the engine config is the same.

i dont believe that the 2.3 platform has changed much since the addition of FI, untill it was changed to DOHC in 2001. it should work for your car, but between 1994 and 1995 is when the dash change happened so who knows what else they changed.

If your 1995 was not OBDII equipped, then they should be the same. OBDII systems started to appear in 1994 on some Fords, my 1995 E series had it, as did some F series, I'm not certain if any or all Rangers did.

go look up part numbers for the stock parts on the stock engines. if they use the same pn then you shoudn't have any problems

94=obd1 95=obdII, but as far as air intake goes, i know they are set up a little different, but the basic motor is the same. with some fabrication it shouldn't be too hard to adapt it to fit on a 94. I personally just made my own intake for my 94 2.3. cost about 30 bux instead of 130. BTW stock intake on your 94 IS a true cold air setup. The only reason I made one for my truck is because I like the way it sounds. Performance gains will be neglegible.

just curious....

why do you want a cold air intake? what will it do for you?
the 2.3 is a reliable engine but we sure won't be winning any races with them...

ok ...so i guess that would save you about $75 after 10,000 miles...
if you get 2mpg better.. say 24 vs 22mpg's.. and fuel is $2 /gal average
