Why would you want it to be a 408? Why not a 302 to a 331 or ever a 351 to a 383.

Not always the case. I could have a 331 and still have a better dyno pull. Lol it's not always about cubic inches for powers. Many things come into play.

I once had a 93 notch 2.3l and wanted a 302 Cleveland swap. (off topic)

I'm not a 100% but I think the biggest a 2.3 can go is 2.8. Thats poked & stroked. I think just bore is 2.5.

i disagree that more cubes isnt better. i am not saying that you cant make a smaller cubed engine steonger. but there is definitly no replacment for cubes.

now you can make a little bit of power out of those little 4 cylinders. but the best way to do it is a turbo. throw a ranger cam in there, a nice valve job. them poke and stroke it. you could make decent power out of it. but if you decide to go power adder i wouldnt poke and stroke to the max so you can keep your cylinder walls nice and strong.

i personally always wanted to do a strong little 4 banger that could keep up with v8s. not to many of them can. could you imagine the look on a camaro fuys face when your 4 banger beats him. lol

And what about a good head Mayr just have it worked or does the ranger have a better one

---------- Post added at 01:56 PM ---------- Previous post was at 01:34 PM ----------
