That intake and the Edelbrock Performer are not worth spending your bucks on as far as gaining any performance.The Edelbrock Performer RPM and the early Edelbrock F4B which is a clone of the early Shelby Cobra intakes will do the job best for you.I am sending you a pm.

OK, S&H ? Poor hddave1 he's drooling all over his shirt. That intake looks good. Maybe JeffB's going to fix him up. At 160+ bucks for the RPM, there goes the budget.

the engine is in a 85 ford ranger bolted to a c4 tranny with 3.08 gears.. right now its stock rebuild 40 over with 2bbl intake and motorcraft carb.. it has headman shorty headers with 2 flowmasters duel exhaust

bolt in a explorer rear axle 98-2003 they come with disk brakes and 342-410 ratios.

a 373 lsd rear would really add some pepper

they are available at the local wreckers for under 250!

thought about another rear end with disk but my truck didnt come with power brakes so i didnt think i could use disk..as far as another ranger rearend with 3.45 gears, that might be in the future but now im gonna upgrade to a better intake and maybe a cam/lifter kit..
