    If they're willing to ship it, i would think shipping would probably be in the $500ish range for container shipping. I would love to see @PetroleumJunkie412 stuff this into a boosted Ranger

    James Duff Long Tube Headers?

    I know the topic of headers has been absolutely beat to death, but after searching all day I have found almost no information on the James Duff long tube headers for the Ford Ranger 302 swap, other than a couple people mentioning that they have a reputation for poor fitment. Does anyone have...

    2.9 Ignition Coil Resistor?

    Does anyone know the purpose of the 22k ohm resistor going to the ignition coil? I was planning on switching to an msd ignition, and was wondering if this was necessary to keep

    Aftermarket Fuel Rail

    Has anyone ever found an aftermarket fuel rail for the 2.9l? Morana Racing makes one for the 4.0l but nothing comes up for the 2.9. I tried searching online, and within the forum but I was not able to find anything
