I'm guessing its a 400, factory they were about 180HP, with a 4v carb and intake I think they gotta be closer to 210HP or so.

I've built a few 400 motors up to 365HP at the flywheel and a few...

I've had a few motors on the dyno and they didn't use any air filter so it must not matter that much. 650 CFM is just fine, the factory 2v was like 360CFM or so.

I've installed the Hookers a few times and they were good. Other projects have used custom setups.

Is your truck a 2 or 4wd? Since the 302 wasn't in 4wd then none of them would fit.

Thanks, I was looking for that link. I think this truck would be a good candidate for a dark jade repaint.

You can just copy the IMG code and paste it into your post from Photobucket also.

Hope you find it!

The 351W wasn't factory for those years, so you'll probably have to use some shorty headers.

Looks like poop is Medium Vaquero Metallic. There is no K engine code so it must be an H. Otherwise its a standard Ranger XLT.

I'd try craigslist to keep the costs down. Factory 4v intakes typically go for more than the aftermarket ones.

Summit has some decent deals right now.

A set of headers, aluminum intake and smaller 4v carb will get you 30HP and make that trip a lot nicer. I'd think you could do that for under $500.

You can haggle and beat X plan if the vehicle you want to buy is on the lot already, if you order like me, X Plan is the way to go. Just a smidge over $29k out the door.
