  1. 2001 Ford Ranger

    Got to drive this one around today, car wash etc.. drove nice no issues, tons of fun loud on the outside, quiet on the inside even with the windows down. has 0 traction off the line. Skinny old cheap tires have no chance. Engine is strong but stock so the party is pretty much over by 4800 rpm but tons of fun for cheap.v

    Worked on repairing the floorboards from the relief sections I had to make to fit the trans. turned out better than expected. will finish the drivers side tomorrow. added a layer of boom mat ish insulation to the trans hump and parts of the floor. carpet kit on order. ( if this seems like a lot of work on a $300.00 truck, your right.)

    tell me about your tires when I picked up my 14 GT mustang it had New tires they suck and are cheap, loud and most likely just hold air Firestone Firehawk AS radials they are generally know as putting combat boots on a gymnast so far as grip and handling was thinking about Continentals as a replacement not a drag or autocross car just very good tires that are NOT loud and handle nice. thanks

    the black tube is the trans dipstick, there is no other way. its also really nice for the exhaust headpipe bolt access. there is a pinch weld seam for the floor/firewall that hitting the top of the trans, it had to go

    Perhaps the best part of this is that my wife's 13 needed tires in a bad way. now she has 4 like newish tires and upgraded wheels. the black wheels I never did like on the white car. kind of makes her plain jane v6 convertible look a little kind of a bad ass.

    Pulled the bed, switched fuel systems to a return style. re mounted the rear sway bar end top links, like this set up better, 1 inch ish thick wall sleeve and 7/16 grade 8 bolts. disreguard the weld splatter at the frame rail, cleaner set up should work better. getting close

    I have a new not rebuilt HX35 on the shelf if you pull the trigger on that one. ended up going bigger
  22. 2001 Ford Ranger

    I have both, the problem is the non-return run at 85 psi and the return style from the donor efi runs at 45-50psi. I have the pump and quick connect fittings in hand so , just doing it correctly so this pig will run.

    These are the mounts that attach to the block and then you have to use 2wd 4.0 mounts that attach to the frame. I got these used off the interweb, blasted and sprayed silver so you can see the bolts when the engine is installed , again, it's tight and it makes that job a little easier if you can see what is going on Well the majority of the tough stuff is done engine is on new mounts and in the giant trans in a tiny truck is in and bolted up (that was NOT fun) and you have to do the 2 separate so ya big fun there. Have to pull the bed to change the fuel pump to a return style pump to match the donor system any luck I can fire it up on Friday when we have the day off
