2004 Ranger?

My buddy just got a 2004 Ranger 4X4 with the 4.0L V6. He's thinking he can take me and I just wanted to know rather he could or not.

better add take you at the dragstrip otherwise this will probably get moved lol, i wuold think that he would take you because the pre 99s are weak and his 200+ hp is alot more than urs...the only reason i can think that you would take him is the weight difference. Ive never heard of a stang racing a 4.0 so only a race would tell.

Being a 4X4 it probably has a towing package which gives it taller gears, so that will help the ranger some.

as of right now... just wait, just wait, I want it so no big a** truck will tie with me again... seriously, with the g/f in the car, that was not a highlight of my night. I was quite pissed. Had to burn them off big time at the next light to make up for the loss of pride

I guess. Ford never intended the V6 mustang to be fast.

I can't upgrade to a v-8.... if I could've, I would've already, I've got the money. My dad says if I get a different, car, I have to pay for it. He's got like $9,000 left on my loan, and he's paying my insurance. I can't afford to go v-8 and pick up the change in insurance and car payments. I love my car also. So what I thought about doing was getting P&P heads and intake next summer, along with a cam. Then, dropping in the 8.8'' rear end, as it comes with t-lok. After that, I would assume I would already have the shift kit and leather seats.... maybe rims? If I use the mentality of those civic drivers, rims will cut 3 seconds off my 1/4 mile, hahahaha, sorry, had to get that in there... this is what prompted that... "nope, i'm getting a new neon tip that will hopefully bring me down into the 12's, and after i put the other layer on my wing i will hopefully come down into the 9's why do u guys think i'm joking?" AAAAHHHHH HAHAHAHA, even I'm not that dumb .... but how many horses am I looking at with P&P intakes and heads cam and shift kit? What else would you say to get onto that? (besides NOS)

thought i'd jump in for the fun...someone mention racing a ranger??!!

i've got the less powerful version of the 4.0l v6, and that truck gets up and goes well enough to frighten cobra and corvette owners from time to time.

i can't really speak for how well it would do off the drag strip because i don't drive around with slicks on, which means i couldn't hook up in 3rd gear on the street if i wanted to. and i certainly don't race without the bottle.

better tires and a 100mph gov have kept me from besting the E.Ts listed below, and i'm making 300hp and over 400tq with a 75-85hp shot of nitrous so i can go much higher with bigger injectors..

i'd just say, don't underestimate the rangers. stock 4x4's may not be a problem for you guys, but how many people leave their vehicles stock if they like to race anyhow right?

i agree with falcon...get some nitrous. you'll be able to beat the stock 4.0s, and maybe keep up with some of the modified ones.
careful though, there are some 4.0l rangers running low 12s
