Re: Ford Ranchero Gli turbo

So an XR6 motor will not be better in turbo form due to high compression , which you will have to lower. Ok ...

Re: Ford Ranchero Gli turbo

Well accoding to the Aussie forums the T5 will break eventually Normally 3rd gear that strip. Also Im not sure to what torque these boxes are rated for, as 500 nm is rather easy with a turbo strapped to it. Hence the reason I went with a rater large turbo so the torque doesn't spike suddenly, and al...

Re: Ford Ranchero Gli turbo

Hi. The J pipe or UP pipe as its also known just routes the exhaust manifold upwards so the turbo goes on top of that. I feel it flows much better than most fabricated steam pipe setups, although the gasses might cool down a bit. Not sur on how much power its making , but alot more than it used to e...

Ford Ranchero Gli turbo

Hi so after owning the Ranchero for a close to a year I finally had everything to do a turbo conversion. Let me just say that I fell in love with this truck thats actually more like a car. It handles like a car , drives like one and you can still load a huge amount on the back. https://farm3.staticf...
