Don't know of anyone one running one on this site. When you reach a certain speed at the track it's required to have a cage.

I've got a 4 point that I'm going to upgrade to a 6 or 8 later on when it's required lol. Maybe someday

Ruh roh, Jess is knocking on those doors.

Though, like most places test n tune, I don't think he'd get booted for not being caged and running that fast.

I am past both requirements and do not have one yet . I planned to install a six point this year but have decided to change the entire top end of the motor and go for broke .I can see the horror of tuning starting all over again. I have been 11.45 so far with a 1.54 60ft .

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.
