Not sure if they are CARB certified or 49 state EO. Check their web site
for the latest for your app...

JBA headers are CARB legal. The headers themselves even have a permanent
badge on them with some CARB certification number or something on them, for
any inspector to see. I have a '94 Ranger 4.0, and I purchased the headers
from JBA directly. JBA has a "speed shop" here in San Diego, so I bought
the headers there and also had them installed on my truck there. I got the
ceramic coated option, which is supposed to help dissipate heat quicker and
stand up to the elements better. They also don't turn blue and brown, as
headers with no coating would (from the high temperatures). You can find
JBA on the internet at www.jbaracing.com. I've been to a few other local
exhaust shops around town, and I've noticed that some of these shops will
order the headers for you, so I don't think that they're that difficult to
obtain.

Thanks for the info Ray, but I went to their Web page of products and I see
that they don't list a header set up for the 2.3 or 2.5L motors. I dont
see a e-mail add. for them so I'll phone them later today just to be sure.
Glad to hear your 4.0 is breathing easier.

You're welcome, Tom. If I recall correctly, I think I saw a breakdown of
various header manufacturers in the latest issue of Off Road Magazine. You
might want to check that out as well. I know I have seen stories in
magazines and the internet about people adding headers to their 4 cylinder
motors (can't recall if they were street legal set ups, though...).
Good luck.

My Ranger is a '94 4.0, but I think the same rules apply to any situation:
Your best-felt, seat-of-the-pants performance, power increase is going to
come from doing a gear swap first, then looking to your pulleys, exhaust,
and intake.
I've done all of these except for touching the pulleys. Nor do I have any
super chips - don't really want to mess with that, either.

Subject: FTE Small - Front Driveshaft Replacement

It appears my baby needs a new front driveshaft. I was wondering if this
was something I could do in a few hours with a few friends, or if I needed
to bring it to a garage...
