Me too, MAC, missed it, Thanks...
My next one will be a 289EFI (Explorer 5.0L/de-stroked)/5-sp (?NV3550?) into my '03 Ranger, getting edgy.

Blueranger99,
Keep the site informed on how this goes.

I would sure advise in running the Torque Monster headers. They run about $780 but fit great ,look great, every little bolt, gasket, lock-tite, instruction vidieo is included. He will make them to fit aftermarket heads if you go that way. Reason I mention this is that it normally takes him 6-8 weeks to make a set, not an off the shelf item.

Headers called "Torque Monster", do they increase torque noticeably on the street or are these race application ?

Well other than finding a set of the dis-continued FRPP headers, these are the only after market headers made for the later Rangers. Not really race headers, only have 1 1/2" primary tubes but are of a four into one header design. The stock cast iron headers don't seem too bad, the tube type are junk, use them as door stops. Got pictures if what you see on the TM site is not enough.
