Anyone turbo charge a late model Ranger? I have a 98 Mazda (Ford)
B2500 (Ranger) and I am very interested in installing a low pressure
turbo. Any help or information is appreciated.

Depending where you are, you can get things chromed if you can't find them
that way originally. If you had a spare you wouldn't even have to take the
truck down. Might talk to the guys at www.thechromeshop.com and see what
their prices are. May scare you into an aluminum girdle though, no idea
really what that would cost.


Just my 2cents

If you don't live in CA, I'd suggest getting all the parts from a '87 or '88
T-bird Turbocoupe or a Merkur XR4Ti from the same era (the ones with the
intercooler). These engines put out 190hp stock and with mods can put out
more. It shold be a direct bolt-on to the block (the wiring will be a bitch
though, you'll have to replace your EEC-V processor and harness with the
TC's EEC-IV). FWIW, this swap is very common for older EFI 2.3L I-4 Rangers
and is very effective. IF you don't want to use the TC EEC, you can still
use all the parts (turbo, intakes), but you'll have to get a custom chip
burned for your EEC-V.

Subject: FTE Perf - Better Power Steering

I have a '78 F-150 400/C6 A/C PWR and all that nice stuff, >>2WD

The steering box is worn out, and I have been wondering if there is
a later model box that has variable ratio and can fit, with few mods,
into my truck.
If so, what would be involved in making this upgrade?

Any help will be appreciated.
