Sounds great, but it's been done in XR4ti so it should not be too much of a hassle . You do realize that parts to get the rebuild done are pricey. And the timing belt etc. must be done when at 100,000 miles. Is the engine an interference design ? So if the timing belt goes so does the engine....

its not a turbo 4 its a ford/yamaha/mercury marine joit on a 3litre v6 normally aspirated and was only available in one model world wide and that was the taurus.they did prototype a ranger p/u in witch i duplicated but in a 94 body not the 89 body ford had used. the truck was seriously fast quiet a sleeper as a pinto it would be over the top
