No forced induction either! The guy just likes to have a project. Started with a turbo 2.5, then a twin turbo 5.0 I think, now a 545 Big Block.
Then there is another one, it's my fav, but its not done yet. The guy is swapping a 6.0 diesel into the ranger. The back end is totally custum to stuff the big ol drag slicks in. That one will have 600hp stock and 750 on a shot. I'm pretty sure he said somewhere he was going to try and beat the land speed record for a diesel, which is held by a ranger as well, I think its at 215.xx might be 225.xx, idk.
I just like to hear v8s roar, and go fast. I'm not into circuits much.
Another build for a ranger that I like, is an aluminum 245 V8 buick engine. Thing weighs 100 pounds less then the 2.5L!! 3.9L V8, more horsepower then the 5.0 and mileage of a 4 cylinder. I want to do that!
