Sorry man, no major updates. Life has been complicated lately and my garage is too small and cold to allow working on the truck over the winter. I drive the truck periodically on nice days, and have a few hundred miles on it now with no problems though. It's been a lot of fun for a conservative tune with little or no timing. I've got a buddy building a 2.3t right now, and we may make a trip to the dyno together sometime in the next couple of months once we get little things buttoned up.

I did get some carbon fiber racing seats, and I have the drivers seat installed, but need to get the matching passenger seat set up the next time I have a free warm weather day. I'll post pics of the seats when I have a chance.
Noticed you said you had a bud doin a 2.3 t build. so am I,plus changin to M5ODR1 at same time. Do anyone know if driveshaft works,or has to be modded or complete different shaft has to be had? Think I got everything else.dunno... Would like to compare notes if he's up for it.. hawgford@windstream.net. Thanks.

I suck at updating this thread. Sorry! Can't believe it's been 10 years since I started this thread. Life has changed a lot in the last 10 years, and house projects, kid stuff, etc have pushed the truck down the priority list quite a bit. I still have the truck, and it gets driven occasionally on nice days, but probably not even 1k miles per year at this point. At some point, I need to fab up some better brackets for the racing seats to drop them down some and give myself some more head room. I also still need to get it on a dyno and get a more aggressive tune figured out. It spends most of it's time sitting in my new pole barn these days:

Thanks! The front brakes use a custom made kit. There was a forum member back in the day that designed and made a couple of dozen kits. The details change a bit depending on the year and suspension of the truck they're installed on, but the basic idea is a Ranger brake rotor is turned down to little more than the hub which fits inside of the Cobra rotor. Then, a custom caliper bracket is milled from aluminum. It allows the Cobra caliper to bolt onto the Ranger spindle and be properly placed on the Cobra rotor too.
