1994 ranger

im doing a 1994 ford ranger with a 347 12:1 comp ratio that is for racing only. trucks best pass has been a [email protected] but i have been having problems with the tq conv but i think i got it fixed. just did some 1 3/4 x 3 headers for it. i think the truck should run low 12s or high 11s

Welcome! Let us know what the ET and MPH are with the fixed converter. You're doing well right now, as 97 MPH should be high 13s. Has the combo been tuned at the track yet? Do you have a slip to post or info from it?

Re: 1994 ranger

ty
all i have done was change jets to make it run fatter. i have not done any thing with the timing but change the spring to make it have more timing. i set it at 15 degress and the springs and bushings add a timing. i used the 2 springs that gives its timing the fastest and the bushings that gives it the like 28. the truck is like 3280 pounds so that my be y the mph is so low. the timing slips i have i did not keeep them. when i get every thing fixed im going to dyno it. on the passes it did it did not even go into 3 rd gear on them passes.

Re: 1994 ranger

Are those custom headers? They're pretty sweet looking. I am looking for a new set for my ranger.

You should easily be in the 11's. My ranger runs 11.60 on the engine.

Re: 1994 ranger

a lot has changed. the motor had got hot and found the heads was trash. i went from a hyd roller to a .675/.675 lift solid roller, dart pro 1 195 heads non ported. i also found that the transmission had a crack in it. i had the tq conv rebuilt. the motor made 508 [email protected],500 on a motor dyno.

Re: 1994 ranger

Who made the headers for you? do you think they can duplicate them, I've been looking for fender well headers like that.

Re: 1994 ranger

sorry took so long. this is the shop that done the headers. I would look for someone else to build them they took a lot longer than what they said. I took them pictures of long tube headers and they made shorty headers. they are 1 3/4 headers and if I had it to do over again I would do the wide exhaust pattern headers. they are a pain to install. I had to cut the headers to single tube headers to install them faster.

Re: 1994 ranger

Thanks for sharing the photo's. Those headers came out awesome, do you think they can make another set without having ny truck there? I would do like you sai though and go with the wider bolt pattern. Do you remember what you paid to have them done?

Re: 1994 ranger

I had the header flanges and they did the pipe off the flange. I had the collectors also. its was like 1400.00 to build the headers and another 300-350 to have them coated if I remember right. so it was like 250+1400+300 to build them . I don't think they could copy a set to fit your truck because if you did not have the same motor mounts or your motor set different it would not work. on the passenger side they hit the truck and knocked the floor up to build the header. Im not sure why they just did not make the header clear .

Re: 1994 ranger

I got the truck with the motor in it so not sure what brand it is but I was told it was one they don't make any more. I was told they was L and L brand. L and L Products

I just installed a manual steering gear box.
