Worlds Quickest Turbo RANGER ?!
We aren't certain, but we'd venture to guess that we stumbled across the
worlds quickest Ford Ranger at the HPT Truck Shootout this year... With a
best pass of 7.91 @ 175mph, that's pretty damn hard to beat, especially for
a truck that's STREET DRIVEN! If you know of a quicker Ranger, post in the
Ford Ranger beats Corvette
It's not often you see a Ford Ranger outrun a C5 Corvette in a drag race,
but the little teal truck in the left lane features a Nitrous fed small block and a great-working
suspension. The Corvette driver missed a shift, but wouldn't have had
enough for the Ford either way. Great action from Draggin' for Toys, an
annual charity drag racing event at Brainerd Optimist Drag Strip.
FORD (exhaust sound)
JBA stainless cat-forward headers & cat-back Exhaust system as it sounds on my 2002 Ford
Ranger Edge (4.0L 5spd 2WD). For anyone thinking of buying this Exhaust system here is a video I made yesterday
with combined highway and city driving. It was a rainy day and when I got
into town (Stratford, ON, Canada) visitors attending the Stratford
Shakespearean Festival had taken most of the parking spots anywhere near it
and then some. JBA makes similar systems for most cars and trucks. I
purchased mine locally at K&K Racing (Stratford, ON) and had them install
it. I love it since it is not too loud and can be quiet when you want. You
can get the headers with or without a ceramic coating. So to demonstrate
the sound I did at times rev it more and drive in a lower gear than usual.
I even get better gas mileage now and the system is smog/EPA/emissions
1998 Ford Ranger Rear Differential Disassembly
Disassembly of 1998 Ford Ranger 8.8" Rear Differential. Replacement of rear
bearings was required including pinion and carrier bearings. This is an
overview of the process. Some steps may not be shown or shown in part.
Refer to a shop manual for detailed instructions. I am not a mechanic but I
do have a lot of experience with vehicle mechanical work and have had
substantial coaching from my brother who is a mechanic.

Ford Courier Drag Truck
check out this 572 2000 hp 1978 ford courier pro mod pickup on the 1/8
mile at barona drag strip as he makes a complete pass.
In 1977 the Courier was redesigned, and a host of new options was
available. The truck was available with front disc brakes, as well as a
Ford built 2.3 liter engine option (which was the same as that of the Ford
Pinto and Mustang II). The
key identifying feature of the Courier from Mazda's B-Series was still the
singular headlights, although with park and indicator lights placed inset
starting in '78 ('77s still had the turn signal lights in the bumper).
In 1979 the base model engine was increased in size to 2.0 liters (120.1
CID). The optional Ford 2.3 L (~140 cu in) engine was produced in
The Courier was never available with a diesel engine in the US. However,
the 1980 Mazda B2200 was available with the S2, a Perkins-built 4.135 (4
cylinder, 135 CID) 2.2 liter diesel engine, producing 66 hp (49 kW) at
2,100 rpm. This same diesel engine was available in the 1983 and 1984 Ford
Ranger, however it was replaced by the Mitsubishi 4D55T 2.3 liter turbo Diesel (also used in Mitsubishi's own Mighty
