Ford ranger

6 days ago

So I have an extra engine from a 280z. Everything is there. I also have a Ford ranger body the is in decent shape. Thinking of putting a Z engine in it. The stock 4cy in the ranger puts out a lowsy 98hp new so I'm thinking with the Z engine it should have a lot more get up and go.has anyone done this before? I've searched but can't seem to find anything.

I'm Amazed! Stock engine components

I am amazed I haven't seen any info about this. Everyone is so focused on big cams,bigger bore etc...

I'm curious as to what a stock long block l28 could put out. I'm talking aftermarket intake,better exhaust. Modified dizzy for more advance.
Camshaft timing adjustments,better spark (MSD FOR EXAMPLE)..
I wonder what these mods and extensive dump tuning would put down.
Anyone have any input?

Hey y'all.

So I've come a ways with my car and I'd love to get rid of my half shafts and throw in some cv axles from the 83 turbo 280zx..how is it done and what do I need? I already have R200 diff in the car..I've searched and haven't gotten a straight answer.

Thanks :)

Built transmission 280zx

Hey all.

I plan to run a large shot of nitrous (250hp shot)...
Bottom end its built so that isnt my issue..ive converted to cv axles and i have a 3.9 r200 as well as custom drive shaft with replaceable spicers...

BUT my transmission is a refreshed 82 na tranny..
I know it will granade haha. My buddy who owns a mustage (341 stroker) sugested that instead of getting a swap, i should have straight cut gears or helical gears put in as they are stronger and would hold the power..is this possible to do with our transmissions??? Cost is no issue..i also have fadanza 10.8lb flywheel and competition clutch stage iv 4 puck with 2900lb pressure plate.good for 600lb fptq..so im good there.just conserned about my transmission holding up and NOT up for doing a z32 swap etc..

THANKS! :)
