Desprate help needed for 2.0L

OK I have a 1984 Ranger with the 2.0L I-4 with a 4 speed transmisssion. The engine is blowen and I am trying to decide on what I want to do with it.

I am kicking around the ideal of rebuilding the 2.0 but I want to add a cam and header to it to get the power up on it.

So does anyone know where I can get some proformance parts for it.

Thanks

You can toss it in the trash. Upgrading to a 3.0 would be worlds better. **** i'd go upgrade to a 4.0. But building a 2.0 seems like a waste of time to me to be honest. Your perfomance will honestly suck because its such a tiny engine.

Is'nt the 3.0 a fuel injected V6?

I wouldn't mind switching to a V6 I would just prefer to get into the the whole switching over from a carberated engine system to a electronic fuel injected system.

Also if the 3.3 is not fuel injected what Transmission would I need to get to put behind it?

Seriously? Swapping in a 3.0L would be a complete waste of time for the amount of work it would be. Drop in a 5.0L v8 with a carb and a 5 speed and it will make your 84 ranger a whole new truck

What would be the best Transmission to put behind the 302?

I would prefer to keep it a manual transmission.

Sorry didnt realize it was an 84. 302 is easy to swap in and therangerstation.com would have good information for you cause more guys have old truck there with swapped engines.
