just a couple days ago i got a

1996 Ranger
reg cab short box 2x4
2.3L 5spd
power brakes, thats it, oh wait, am/fm radio.
i guess you could say Armstrong steering is an option.......

the ultimate stripper truck, but, it should be cheap on gas, and the price was pretty reasonable. and its surprisingly clean for the miles on it

it'll do for a year or so,

thinking of a flowmaster, got one somewhere in teh shop, i was reading about a chip and cam for it.
sirius radio for sure, otherwise, just gonna drive it

So I finally got my torquemonster headers today

Saturday they get installed, then I will post pics of the truck and if you lucky a vid with the engine

They were 598US, I got a 200 dollar discount for being a member at explorerX, only reason is to get the discount, and don't worry about the pics. On saturday I'll be removing the cab again and rigging these up good. Then start her up with my home made plywood jerry rigged firewall which will end up on youtube for all you's to hear the rumble of hte small blcok ford...damn I'm excited...been waiting since holloween for these headers.


Okay, so I installed them this morning but have run into a few drags along the way. First one, drivers side hitting firewall so I braught the engine forward to fix that. Second, passenger sie hitting the heating box which I still have not resolved. Here are some pics.

Any ideas on how to resolve these issues. My first and only thought is to bring the engine up another 1/2 inch and move is more towards the drives side another half inch. I'd have to remake some mounts for that but thats the price you gotta pay. Any other ideas would be great.

not too many ides here. My question is how is your tranny gonna sit? Will everythiing still line up ok without any interference. And with that being said how about the driveshaft?


Tranny sits in pretty much the stock location but I'm gonna move the cross member forward a bit for that and driveshaft I haven't gotten that far yet I'm still trying to get the engine located.
