Yeah. i'd love to know the specs of it. It definitely has work done to it more than the basic turbo swap...

Actually I have 2, yes thats right 2, 2.3 turbo Rangers. One is an '85 4x4 and one is a '99 2wd.

The '85 is about to be my daily driver as soon as i fix the body mounts and get a timing cover for it so it can pass inspection. It's basicly a straight swap from an SVO with a front mount intercooler.

The '99 is torn apart again so I can do some more upgrades. Currently it has a 2.5 block, 2.3 rods and pistons from a turbocoupe, crank from a '92 Mustang 2.3, a T3/T4 hybrid turbo, a Zoom Kevlar clutch, 60 pound injectors, 255 Walbro pump, adjustable cam gear, center mount header, cxracing bar and plate intercooler, James Duff traction bars, and an 8.8 3.73 l/s from a '97 B4000. After I get it running again the next mods will be a cam, and most likely either my old H1C or a HY35. And then probably bigger injectors.

I'm assuming it would have been Jess Warren.

I found it ^^^^

I guess now it's running a 97 2.3L built with 400 RWHP!!!

In the vid he had the stock 98 block running 270 RWHP.

A stock block running 270 hp sounds a little extreme I thought the you had to have built internals to stand up to a turbo?

Jess does have a built engine. Around 5-7 psi will crack the stock 2.5 pistons. His old engines are destroked 2.5's. He took the rods and pistons from a turbocoupe/svo and a crankshaft from a small journal 2.3 and put it into the 2.5 block. This is also how my current build is.

You can check out the trf forums at turborangerforums.com. Thats his website.
