I have a freshly rebuilt turbo-4 banger out of an 80's Tbird, I am planning on dropping it into my 4cyl ranger, along with its auto tranny rather than the 5spd in the ranger now, I pull roughly 20 mpgs now with my stock setup and about 300,000 miles. Does anyone know what kind of mileage they get now in their turbo-4, I don't know what the engine got even in the bird, it wasn't road worthy when I acquired it. The ranger is 2wd, reg cab, short bed.
The milage on a injected TC engine should be about the same as you get now.What not working the turbo unit.But will suck up to about 13-14 when on the turbo all the time.I would say stay with the stick trans it is more durable than the old 3 spd/4spd OD automatic.Not to mention takes about 25 HP to run it.
