    Performance 4.0 down on power?

    @limit_explore I WOULD LEAVE THE BLOCK AS IS If you are measuring 0.023" clearance, that is a good thing. I recommend using the new pistons with the block as is. You are already going to be in the 11:0 arena with a race duty engine. It's nice to have the free horse power from the compression...

    Experiences Wanted - Bilstein vs James Duff

    @Kenobi77 Duff 100%!! Nothing against Bilsteins, they make a great component but the won't control body roll. Using a pair of their 70/30 shocks on both front corners as a minimum will blow your mind; on all 4 corners, provides further improved suspension control. The quality is great but...

    Ranger Raptor Assault School

    Renaming an Escape The Bronco Sport is PURE genius. I have very little respect for the Escape; they are a vehicle that does one thing well...pick up the kids from soccer practice. Translation, the new soccer-mom van.

    M50d-r1 short shift kit, core shifter

    @superj Funny, your dash has a controller for an airbag, my passengers say that I am the airbag... perhaps I should install a button for the passenger to control the airbag.

    There are a couple more components in that ignition system. Are you saying that the coolant sensor is bad?

    Wtf....coolant sensor?

    @rusty ol ranger Sounds like your are talking about 2 separate issues: 1) the 2.9l does not like to run when cold, mine never liked to run cold and I as much as practicsl, I avoided it. 2) HARD STARTING...now that is not a characteristic I expect to hear about a 2.9l; what I expect owners to say...

    96 Ranger xl

    I like the black grill ..) - The dome light, check the bulb and the fuse to the circuit. - A/C, when mine started not being icy cold, I took it to be recharged, that lasted another 5-6 years. After that I lived in a less hostile environment, so I removed the belt and enjoyed greater fuel...

    Performance 4.0 down on power?

    An engine oil cooler works with either a hi volume or stock replacement Mellings oil pumps; I have used them under both conditions.

    Injector problems again

    I think that your fuel rail is simply rejecting the Eddie Lawson green valve covers. 🧐

    Performance 4.0 down on power?

    With those flat tops and fast burn heads, I'm using: • exhaust heat jackets on the headers and H-pipe • 2 heat ranges lower plugs • 15" electric fan • engine oil cooler with remote filter • all synthetic fluids • 2 core Explorer automatic radiator • rear of hood raised ½" I agree with you...

    Performance 4.0 down on power?

    It only just occurred to me, who's timing set did you install? May be worth one more manufacturer phone call; a new set should only align at zero.

    I am curious what your goal(s) are with this build ..)

    Performance 4.0 down on power?

    @limit_explore It is possible that the cam has timing built into the grind, my custom 4.0l cam will have 4° of advance in the grind; perhaps a call to the manufacturer is in order...A WHOLE TOOTH is definitely too much!! The larger injector could be passing too much fuel, running a rich can...

    Performance 4.0 down on power?

    @limit_explore BAD TIMING👀 Off by a whole tooth, holly crap...you may have dodged the mother load bullet; with those small dish pistons/fast burn heads those valves are close; if you didn't damage anything, you dodged a heck of a bullet ..) BOTH TRANSMISSIONS I've used that 2.9 with both an...
