Still getting crappy gas mileage. Surely it can't just be the 3.73 gearing.


On another note I seen a 2.3 Volvo motor last time I was at Glisson's. Debating on doing the Volvo head swap.

With 373's my 2wd 2.3l 96 ranger was getting about 25 mpg on the highway...

It bolts up and gets better flow since its a DOHC 16 valve head. But it requires a lot fabbing and parts from various vehicles to make it work. Both manifold have to be custom made and none of the pulleys match up.

Picked up some halfway decent brake pads at the u-pull and installed them. Also picked up a Roush catback for a Focus today. Debating on selling or hacking up to put on the Ranger.

I'd go for aluminum rims, lighter and more fuel efficient...

Front end back to stock. Decided to sell and get an extended cab F150. Need something bigger with 3 dogs and the B2 isn't solid enough. I'll be going back to stock ride height and putting the stock seats back in soon as well.

I thought I had replied to this. Oh well, the Dream Beams are available if you want them Rick. If not I am going to post them. Should bring around $250.
