So I've had my share of danger rangers! Currently Im driving a 2003 ranger edge 3.0 manual transmission. I want to put a 5.0 engine in it. I have heard that the mustang fits right in. I was looking @ the 95 5.0 mustang motors. where do i start as far as parts to go with it. obviously a wiring harness, but will it hook up to my transmisson? Im running a stage one clutch in it with a 8.8 rear end and 4:10 gears. I want to know if i can still use the same gauges, fan, and intake since i just recently bought a k & n intake. well if i can get some feedback that would be great! ill post more pics of my other rangers. if i dont check this also email me!

I'm pretty sure the motor wont hook up to your stock tranny... you will probably need to go with a T5 (manual) or a C4 (auto) to get it to work.

Is your truck 4x4 or 2wd?

Danny is right about the trannys. Im pretty sure you can use the stock gauges; the fan if its electric and pumps out enough air; the intake will be different from the 3.0 to the 5.0... The person you want to contact is rwenzing. He has a 04 i think and he put a 5.0 from a mountaneer i believe in the truck, not to mention its supercharged! He is the man to talk to!
