Hi, I have an 84 ranger, it's been passed down in my family as a wicked, outrageous show truck, hence the 5.0 swap. I have been running the idea of buying a turbo kit for it because why not, but i'm not sure where to start because there isn't much room in the engine bay and I have no idea where I could even mount the intercooler. First thought was to go no hood and throw it on top like a subaru, but that seems like it would be too much of a hassle to do basic maintnence. Any thoughts or avaliable kits out there that wouldn't make things too complicated? I do realize the mechanical and reliability problems I could potentially face, but I'm willing to risk that. It is just another project/show truck that will never be complete after all.
