Hi everyone, I recently blew out my head gasket and trying to figure out the best approach to get my 92 Ranger XLT up and running again. Interested to hear if there are any recommendations or suggestions on a preferred engine swap. From my understanding, the head gasket cost will be too high and I should be looking for a new engine to replace it with as opposed to fixing the current engine. I have heard of Ford Mustang engines being used but would love to hear some insight on what would be cost-effective and still efficient in terms of power/output. Currently located in Victoria, BC Canada. Thanks for the help/advice!

What's the worst that could happen?
Lot's of info in the Tech Section on swaps. Scroll down the page till you get here:

Welcome to TRS.

Also not sure that the cost of replacing head gaskets and related repairs/upgrades would cost more that an engine swap, but that depends on the condition of your 4.0.

Welcome to TRS.

Please only make one post per topic in one location, if it needs moved to another section a mod can help with that. Since the other post in General has more replies, I’m locking this for now. Carry on.
