Here's my pride and joy. It's a 1990 Ford Ranger, 2WD standard cab. Obviously, there's something going on under the hood though. It's a 2.3, running an IHI turbo with anywhere from 10 to 15lbs. Supplying the fuel are a set of 60lb/hr Siemens Deka injectors and a Walbro GSS340 pump. A set of forged SVO pistons and a ported dual plug head eat the boost up for breakfast, lunch and dinner :D.
