powerdog.....did the tranny bolt right up?, was there any problem with the extra power to the tranny?
Yea I am using the stock block and the stock 5spd tranny. Holds up very well to the HP I think it will be ok up till 450HP.
how do you install a bypass valve on a turbo ranger?
I am using a RFL BOV I put it real close to the TB after the intercooler. I checked with a wide band o2 sensor and I don't have a prob with it going ritch when it opens. They only open for a short time, I was going to use a bypass valve but after the BOV worked ok with no probs I am going to stay with it.

The RFL is very loud, right now when it opens after boosting 25psi you can hear it very well a 1/4 mi away.

Here are some videos I got last sat 5/13/06 at a ranger meet in OH.

They are at the botom on the right of this link.
