you can make a butt load of horse power with the 2.3 i know of some one making like 450 hp to the tire my 2.3 make about 200hp it is bored has a ported turbo head with winsor vavles and sping a turbo cam with a 121 lobe seperation a match ported intake and a one barrel carb and 10.5.1 cr and get 30 mpg. it was built to pull a 20ft boat up north in michigan at 70. i looking to make it better i think iam going turbo or i just might put a big f ing stroke in it and my 450 or 500
I would love to hear about your build. I have a 94 2.3 and I'm contemplating a dive into the top end to freshen things up. Are you running a stock bottom end? How did you get to 10.5:1? High comp pistons and a shaved head? Pump gas I assume?

We know there are significant valve train changes in 96 with the 2.3. For upped the HP rating slightly with changes to the valve springs, valve steams, and compression chamber. Some claim this is when the cam changes and the rockers went to a 1.86.

Delta is saying all ranger roller cams for the 2.3 and 2.5 Lima are the same and all ranger roller rockets are the same.

Route 66 claims there are two ranger roller cams and two ranger roller rocker ratios.

Route 66 is a garbage website full of bad information.

The duratec in the 2001-2011 ranger is a dohc, based on a Mazda FWD design, and will NOT bolt up to the 2.3/2.5l Lima. I thought it was a 2.3l displacement.

Excellent information, I've seen concerns about working on ignition systems with PATS and would like to say the 1999 trucks with the 2.5 DO NOT have this system although the the 6 cylinder trucks do of the same year
