here's my latest personal build, learned a lot from my passed mistakes and decided it was time to put all my knowledge to work for myself for a change. picked up an 83 ranger with an almost bad motor on a whim


was playing around with it when i realized how much fun it was, so i decided it needed a new motor with some more ponies to replace the wounded 2.3l. thats when this 500 buck f150 came into the picture. i think you can see where this is going.


plan was to do the swap and sell it for a profit while having fun doing it (i know what your thinking) but since im super special things have gotten a little out of hand... more on that later
here is the pulled 5.0l


cleaned up the motor, which is a 70,xxx mile factory ford long block, threw somr simple parts at it, and had dalenzie torque converters and oceanside transmission build me a badass fixed yoke C4 tranny with all the goodies
