Ford's Coyote engine has double overhead cams(DOHC) making it quite wide, 28" vs 5.0l OHV which was 19" wide
So tight squeeze in Ranger engine bay, which barely fit the OHV at 19"

"hemi", does Dodge still make engines?
I though they got them from Amazon now.....................you know, delivered

Was feeling left out :)

Now I am one of the chosen few on your "list"

I prefer Dodge trucks over Chevy/GMC trucks but like Ford trucks the best

That Dodge Demon was one heck of a car, sends the Mustang Shelby and Corvettes down to Soccer Mom status, lol
