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!

^Just use the cheapo copper motorcraft plugs and change them out often. In the long run it's about the same price as the platinums but the coppers work better in a Zetec.

Woohoo! Just got my Bilstein Sport shocks and struts. Now I just need to get some good springs and rear shock mounts and I'm set. Maybe some Eibach Sportlines. Hmm...

Yeah! I should go search around a junkyard to see if I can find any M3 6-speed gearboxes and a LSD.

Ahh I see. Yeah, if my car wasn't a BMW, RWD and running so well I wouldn't really spend money on it. But since it's all of the above, I am!

My uncle and I finally got my new muffler installed on my truck, we replaced the stock one with a new cherry bomb glass pack muffler. Gives it a nice & deep, throaty kind of rumble

Makes it sound quite badass

Hmm...I'm looking at getting an '01 330Ci now. Reasonably priced, and pretty quick.
