My credo
I sniff fuel for a living. Don't judge me!
That engine is sitting in the bed all wrong for installing it in the Ranger. I doubt it would fit in the engine bay.

It's sitting on a tire, a big fat drag slick, so it does kinda look like a monster. I guess there's only one way to find out if it fits though

Found a little bit of free time last weekend to start getting all the crap stripped off and test fitting some new stuff. Broke 3 bolts off in the heads, so i had to take some time to remove them, fortunately they all came out pretty easily. I test fit the new transmission with the 5.8 clutch and flywheel, everything looks like itll work out alright. I also test fit the headers, they look nice on the stand but i'm not convinced theyre gonna fit between the frame rails. Should be ready to pull the old 4cyl in the next week or two.
