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.

Thanks AJ. Yes I was way overdue, lol.

I had the hx40/garrett t3 turbine housing turbo on it. I'm pretty sure I'm having some head gasket issues as well which wasn't helping the situation. Frank will be getting a full tear down and inspection as well as some much needed upgrading and for the record it has a stock crank that had 160 000 miles on it with no speacial prep and now a serious flogging turning well over 8000rpm on a regular basis and as high as 9000 and even 10 000 on one ocassion. Based on the weight of my truck and 1/4 performance it's safe to say that I'm around 500whp, so that's over 600 on the crank, So yeah I think I can safely say the stock crank is good for 500 whp.

Also I should say that St. Thomas raceway did en excellent job of prepping the track on the weekend. They also did a great job of returning the track to it's former glory, they were left in a deep hole from the previous manager and they've done a great job providing a fun and freindly track to race at.

Oh and yes I have video, it's coming.

thats hauling there. nice work. what were the temps? i know on my truck, once it drops below 60*F, it feels like im gaining a good deal more power. and response.

im wondering if that .63 garrett style housing is holding back some exhaust flow. doesn't matter really, but wonder if the actual holset t3 style 14cm or the t4 style 16cm housings would do better?

on your 6765, which exhaust housing you running? the T3 flanged .63?

Funny enough temp really never affected my truck, it's been pretty consistant regardless of temp. I ran 11.11 @ 124 mph in 90+ temps.

I have a t3 .82 AR garrett turbine housing. I don't think the turbine housing is choking it I think the compressor is at it's limit.

The 6765 has a t3 .82 AR turbine housing as well. If I eventually find it choking the engine then I'll put on a twin scroll t4 turbine housing. I'm pretty sure I can push it a lot further using the t3 housing.

yeah thats the difference between a air to air setup and an air to water. do you run a heat exchanger or just the resevoir? ATW are far more consistent with ambient temps, while the colder it gets out the more power i feel.

No heat exchanger, just a 5 gal resevoir that gets filled with ice at the track but even driving hard on the street with ambient temp water it never really gets that hot.
