Goin to a private track rental at Milan Dragway tomorrow and I think I have all the bugs worked out on the truck.

Hoping to come home with at least some low 11 slips and the truck still running!

Starting boost off at 22psi and then hopefully up to 30 by nites end.

Timing is at 19 total right now. I will creep up on that as well. Truck is full of 15 gallons of 105 octane and water/meth tank is full if I need it.

Well here it is,in all its failure.

1.74 7.97@86.3 12.61@104.6

No clue whats going on. its guttless. I could foot brake it or use trans brake and it would run the exact same.

I started day with cam +4 and barely ran 100mph.Changed to Zero and it ran 102.Set -2 and ran 103. Set to -4 and ran almost 105.Boost is all over the place but basically wont go over 22psi.Meth kit made no difference. AFR was all over the place.Ignition timing changes didnt help or hurt it. It dead hooked every pass but just feels like a turd after that.No power.

Losing my mind over this thing. It ran faster a month ago on 3 holes when it blew the HG ...alot faster. Ever since I replaced the HG there has been something holding it back that I just cant figure out. I have replaced and checked EVERYHING,only thing I havent done is pull the head back off.

I logged every run and my FB is full of vids people took if you want to see how much of a turd it is.

Also strange things going on.

I got there with truck idle set at 1000rpm in park. As day went on the idle kept climbing.By end of the nite the dam thing was idling around 1500-1600 in park. Set screw on TB is to tight to move on its own so Im wondering if intake gasket is blown somewhere.

And everytime I restarted truck my TPS would be off and I would have to recalibrate it. It would bounce between 0 and 1% and show 101% at WOT. I reset it and it would be fine un til I turned truck off then repeat.

engine tempt sensor?!?
this would explain idle and the spark mod inefficiency, it may stay in a cold start table?!

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.
