There is a lot of info on the ranger forums. I ordered info from a company that specialized in S 10 and Ranger V 8 swaps. I did my own 302-c4 swap. I did a 2 in body lift to get more room, I used maverick V8 motor mounts and stock Cast iron manifolds, Made my own frame brackets for the motor mounts, I had to hammer the firewall flange and heat the heater box with a big hair dryer type heat gun and deform it to get valve cover clearance. the oil filter and fuel pumps have interference. either get a remote oil filter and rubber hoses to put it in an easy location for oil changes, or use a 460 van oil filter castings , it will let you rotate the filter , 70's something econoline vans with AC and Ps use and upside down looking fuel pump or get an electric one . I used a 5.0 mustang drive shafts parts and did not have to have one cut.
