My credo
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.
Are you sure you want a 460? Most of what I have read and seen indicates that it's hard enough to get a small block v8 under the hood of a Ranger. It will be interesting to see how you do this build.

not to much worried about it ..the biggest would be the steering ...going with stock exhaust madifold..and cutting out engine cross member fab up one to clear the front diff..
