Old 2.3 ;newer 2.3; or goto V-6 ,that is the question?
Got a 89 ford ranger xlt 5 spd 2.3 (w blown head).is there a newer model 2.3 head that would bolt on? From what i hear the design for this head model is crap.If not whats the newest model 2.3 that i can put in there with out changing a lot of stuff? ON the flip side Would a v-6 bolt on to the 5 spd tranny? I know ill have to change wiring,exhaust,radiator,ecm (or brain box or whatever is in there).I really dont want to go back to the older 2.3!!!! Tanks any help would be appreciated. Thank again, Justin
