i have a 99 ranger xlt with a 2.5 liter engine i was wondering if there was any way to get more power out of it nothing crazy just a little more power this truck is a weakling any tips advice would help me alot thanks
I have a 98 2.5 with a few mods done to it. So far I have a K&N Cold Air Intake, Magnaflow exhaust and pretty soon, I'll be gutting the cat on it. You can take a look at Jet Performance seeing they make a chip for the 2.5. IIRC, www.motorhaven.com has one for the 2.5 that runs about $235 IIRC. Don't know much about Throttle Body Spacers. Though, I've seen mostly that they don't do jack crap for power or MPG's. I don't have one personally so I can't say much other than the reviews I've seen.
Or if you want to spend some bucks, you can install a turbocharger setup from an old T-bird with the 2.3T. Or you can snag a 96-98 V8 Explorer somewhere in that era and do an 5.0 swap. The Explorer will work great because Rangers and Explorers are very similar. An Explorer is basically a Ranger with a bench seat and a cap. Hope this post gives you a jump start on what you can do,,,,,op
