    Default Project Wicked Wayz



    1989 Ranger 4x4.
    Picked this up a couple years ago with a bad engine, pulled it for a crylon rebuild and found the cracks. so what the heck.
    Some JB weld and time and it was running. Rattling but running.
    one day it was slow so I pulled it back in the adjust the lifters and found the valve cover was dry... 0 oil pressure.
    So I pulled the whole thing and get ready for the 5.0.

    There is no way that 5.0 is gona fit the way it is now..
    Do the A/C box mod and there is a lot more pass side room.

    1. Did you ever consider the 4.0? Or is the 5.0 too tempting? 2. If you ever want to let go of the drive shafts, let me know.

    Naw. Its the old school 91 F150 or 250.
    I rather lean to torque over HP..
    Most of what we do is off idle. HP comes in above about 4000 RPM.
