  1. 2.3L ('83-'97) Upgrading 1995 Ranger's 2.3 Lime Radiator/Cooling System

    Hi Everyone, I wanted to ask if there was a simple bolt-on way or better radiator that is sold to improve the cooling capacity of the 95 Rangers 2.3 Lima engine.

    Standard or Severe Duty Fan Clutch?

    Im looking to replace my fan blade and clutch when I do my waterpump soon, and just wanted some thoughts on what provides the most cooling without sacrificing power. I know its usually a trade off, but im looking at hopefully something like -10% HP + 25% more efficient cooling, not -20% HP + 15%...
