Re: can i swap one size engine for another size in my ford ranger?

Hey omeosis:

The fact that a 4.0-liter engine was not an option for an '88 Ranger makes the swap that much more difficult. There's going to be lots of brackets, wiring harnesses, mounts, and more which don't match up with the original engine.

As far as parts and labor are concerned, it all depends on where you buy the parts, who does the work, and how involved it gets as the job progresses.

These are the guys who write the books for the junk yards that tell them which parts from one car or truck, will fit in another.

It may not be worth the effort, but it's your call.

Hope that helps.
