Subject: FTE Perf - FORD RANGER 5.0 BUILD UP IDEAS, THOUGHTS NEEDED

Hello All! Merry Christmas! I have a few questions about an engine build
up that I am contimplating for my 90 ranger4x4. I want MAXIMUM low end
torque and midrange.

1.) Can anybody suggest some good naturally aspirated engine combos? I'm
thinking I would like to use a stock block late 5.0 with an aluminum
bottom cap girdle, Holley heads and an edelbrock upper EFI intake, E303
cam, good headers, flowmaster or Gibson Ex., 65-70 TB etc. What do you
think? If you think you have a better combo please do tell!

2.) Same basic long block as above but with a Kenne Bell screw charger
at 8-9 lbs, slightly lower comp. and differant cam. Anyone use this SC
before or now someone who does?

3.) A turbocharged setup, again same long block, low comp, with newer
quick spooling turbos for no lag. Probably home made kit and headers,
two turbos, with boost control so as to adjust boost as needed (0-10lbs)
so as not to have boost kick in while "finessing " a trail but still
have good power and fuel economy on road.

Any suggestion please? If so please add to my ideas with any personal
experience or info. Also this will be attached to a properly built AOD
or AODE.

Thanks,
Bryan S.

It was made for Trick Fow and had two TBs that pointed to each front
corner of the engine and flowed into individual runners at the center.
It had TRICK FLOW embossed in big letters across the back portion of the
manifold that rapped around the back top portion. Pretty trick looking.
I know it was sold and made by Will Burt Automotive as I have an old
magazine from from February 92 that has a pic and add for it, complete
upper and lower was $900 with all linkage etc. Could be a good manifold
for a twin turbo set up.

Thanks all,
Bryan
