  3. What would you choose 2.9 turbo

    Every engine has its qualities a swap isnt always the answer to me. If I want to drive a v8 I'll hop in my 1986 351w f150 or 1990 383 k1500 And as for the 4.0 it's not any better for building than the 2.9 as far as I've read. If anything it's more expensive. I got the truck because it was an...
  4. What would you choose 2.9 turbo

    I had an old bronco with the 351w thing wouldn't die even after putting it under water for a couple of days when I got it home and changed the oil it was white, but cleared out the cylinders and put new oil in and she cranked right up like nothing happened. Ran for 2 years after that trans died...

  16. 1987 ford ranger, $6,000 and a toolbox.

    If I drop the weight of the 3400 pound truck by 550 pounds that puts it at 3000 with me in it so off that 3000 pound and 14 sec 1/4 I'd be looking at 275 at the wheels in theory. That's not to crazy. So what 140 is factory magic number actually like 117 add in restoration good heads good airflow...
