Default 302 in a 1994 ford ranger

How hard would it be to stuff a 302 in a Ranger?

I'm on three of the five sites. Not hard at all. No need for the swap kit, way too expensive. Most end up just using the '85-93' Conv. Mustang mounts and headers all depend on if you're running a 4x4 and which trans. Even the old Mustang Tri-Y headers work in 80% of the cases. Best fitting 5.0 is the later Explorer motor, both for the short front dress and the intake. Then just swap out the wiring and computer and use the common '93' Mustang computer and wiring. Some wire splicing required but it's not hard. That swap done many times. The easiest one is the '98' 4x4, Explorer 5.0 drops right in, two splices at the AC.

i helped build a 331 ranger, but it was a 90. pretty straightforward, but time consuming. those sites should cover all the bases.


your rear tires wont last a week with that combo..just fyi

Thanks for the info guys. This is looking more promising then getting a remanned 4.0 liter from Grooms engines or Jasper engines.

My dad drives it so the rear tires shouldnt be an issue. But maybe the v8 will get the hot rodding back into his blood.

I'm going to do a 5.0 ranger danger thing someday. Just for the hell of it. A small truck, 300 horse 302.. some goodies.. makes for a fun project when you have nothing better to do.

Just about any motor has been dropped in. One did a Lincoln DOHC, several chebys and even a deisel. Some go hard core like the "Old Trucker" from Florida. He said he did have trouble with it overheating but finially got the rear mounted radiator mounted right. One guy out in York, PA is running in his street 347 SC'd Ranger in the low 12 sec range
