Re: 2004 3.0 6cyl ford ranger edge
Before diving into the expense, I'd suggest considering a rebuild of the engine due to the high mileage, and looking into the transmission and rear axle. Not sure to what extent you're going to boost it, stock, the truck was rated for 148 Hp and 185 ft-lbs of torque. The 4.0 was rated for 207\238. The drive train is probably rated for the 4.0, so you can probably easily boost that far, but if you're looking to go beyond that, you'll have to take this into consideration. As far as getting it done separately, it'll cost you more in the end.
Ever notice that there's so many high performance parts available for GM products?
Did you ever think that maybe they NEED them?
