Iv got a 2003 ranger and a 2004 cobra I want
to swap motor, trans, and rear end. Just
want to know if it can be done and how hard
it will be. The ranger has a 2.3 in it as is.
Trying to make the fastest small truck in my
town. Please help if can!
Many years ago a friend of mine put a 460 Ford engine in a mid 80s model Ranger. It took lots of fabrication such as custom radiator support panel and removing the inner fender panels. A 4.6 Cobra engine is as wide (at the heads) or wider than a 460. I would think it would be a very tough job to get it done.
Look up the Ranger Station on the web.
Well it appears this swap is much more common than I thought. The Ranger Station is full of good info or do a google search for "4.6 dohc Ford Ranger".
