    I have a 98 Ranger, 2 wheel drive, 5 speed with a V6, 3.0, and am thinking about swapping it out with a 5.0 engine. What would be the best engine to use, and does anyone have any tips on the swap?

    ...also, here's a link to the videos section of his youtube page ---> https://www.youtube.com/user/tichendorf/videos
    If you scroll down (have to hit "load more"), you'll see he's done a couple of videos on this swap.
    Turns out its a '95 truck, but other than a little different sheetmetal, everything else should be pretty much the same.
