Wow you got it scienced right out Ron lol. I haven't even thought that far ahead yet. I will likely go thru the gears 6500rpm or less but I will NOT go into 5th. I will run it out the back door. Like I said before I have my Ideas and goals but don't want to sway the vote so what I will do is pm an admin. that's already voted with my thoughts and when it's complete they can reveal my prediction.

Need to keep your Air Conditioning or dont want to modify your heater box on a 1983-2001 Ranger check here for all the details!

It's the one and only way to turbocharge your Ranger and keep your factory A/C without modifying the heater/AC box and keeping the durability of a factory Ford E6(1986) turbocharger manifold.

hum, You will use the entire GT set-up except the engine...
with your huge water to air intercooler, our short runner intake that is pretty aggressive...hum since you know it is safe at 12psi but you see it survive to pull up to 16psi! I bet you will try it at 13-14psi and I really don't see why you should go up to 7k rpm with this intake
will you give us the result of the tune? air temp, boost and HP

I know it's hard to keep straight what other people are doing sometimes, so if you have a question ask it and give the info the best I can.

I just think it's fun to do this because it's all new and nothing else to compare with. In reality I'm the only one who has any idea of what it will run since I've been driving it but then again it's been 15 years since I drove anything fast so my senses could be all discombobulated.

A little more insight into the weight of the truck, I don't have an actual number but I can tell you the front end is much lighter feeling when performing spirited acceleration lol, and when driving at faster freeway speeds. This is really no surprise to me since I pulled a boat anchor out of the front of it hehehe.

Sorry i forgot to respond to the post. I'm gonna say sparta it's ForcePowers home track and since I will need help with tuning I'll be with them.

im still in the 13 sec camp. its maybe able to break into the 12s. but i still see 300-375hp in a 3000# truck this is my guess on power n weight. thats still low 13s maybe a 12 in my books.its still a stock motor with a few pounds of boost on there.

may just see you down there then the summer were planning on a few runs at sparta this summer.

I`m close to having it ready to go to the track for the first time. I`m waiting for some nice weather. I`m not going out on a cold miserable day, I have too many things that need adjustment and it;s just not fun in the cold.

Surley more people have an opinion on how fast it will go.
