Ranger what? I hope you plan on a custom back set fire wall to move the engine as far back as possible helping with weight distribution and a ladder bar suspension to have any hope at all of being able to plant the tires..

As for going with a 331? Its a good choice torquey and easy to assemble.

Had a friend who put a 6.0 Iron Block LS engine in a Chevy s10. Realy hard to get traction, but then again I guess it wouldnt be fun if it wasnt a challenge.

honestly man, I hate rating blocks by hp numbers, there are so many more factors at play there, particularly if your doing drag radials or street tires and how good the tune is, if you use a studder box or if the cam is really flat on the top of the lobe

but i have been making ~425 crank for a few years on my stocker with no problems, it really depends, i've seen cars using half hard block filled mexi blocks doing some really impressive things

Agreed that hp numbers aren't an exact science to rate a block by, but they are a good baseline. Its when ppl come in saying they want to put a forged rotating assy in a stock 302 block, then put 18 psi though it and a meth kit... One reason I went modular, no having to buy a $2500 block that adds more weight to an already nose heavy car or go with a bigger stock block although there are a good deal of weight saving measures and a 5.0 notch is not exactly the heaviest car in the world like the newer Mustangs and the pigs coming out of GM/Dodge.
