    Anyone here ever seen this done? A 4.9l straight 6 from an F150 swapped into a first gen ranger.

    I Highly doubt it would fit without a modified/tortured firewall. Best bet's to swap in a mildly built 302 to match the torque specs of the I6. If you do it, I wanna see'd be awsome IMHO.

    302 is the way to go

    I might attempt it. Would totally be worth it in the end imo. Might even extend the nose a tad. I've seen that done on sine custom trucks and it can look pretty awesome.

    Not to be a dick, but why on earth would you pick that motor? I know it's a good motor, and has lots of torque, but there are much better power plants to use for a swap. The amount of time, money, and frustration involved in swapping a 4.9, you could damn near do a 4.0 swap, and a SAS. Ha ha

    Just my thoughts. To each his own!
