    I've got a '99 Ranger that sucks. Is a 260-hp 'Stang GT motor swap pretty common? Might be a fun project. Oh, and the suspension is ass too. What can be done?

    is a ranger engine bay big enough to swallow a 4.6?

    despite their displacement, mod motors are physically huge engines

    Put a 5.0 in there if your going to buy a motor.

    according to this site:

    so without some major mods, no 4.6L
