Its a full BBK Instacharger kit, with some upgrades. The guy who had it on his 95 Ranger trashed the BBK fuel controller and other crap, and put on a rising rate Aeromotive FPR and 42# Lightning injectors, then he had it tuned with a Predator tunable chip which he sent with the kit but I will not be using. He also rebuilt the sc about 5k miles ago.

I actually have a couple more things coming, a Walbro 255 LPH fuel pump, and a 90mm Lightning MAF, and I still need to order a wideband. But other than that I just need to bolt it on and have James write a tune.

what are you going to do about the trans? not sure how long that 5r55e will hold up behind all that new found power.

Not sure really, I just hope it holds up for a while. It is a new trans.

I wouldn't bank on it, I'm on my second trans with about 20,000 miles and its already beginning to trouble. You should consider building an m5od while the 5r55e is getting eaten up, some later rangers evencame with an hd version of the m5od. I absolutely hate being a debbie downer, but the 5r55e is already a notoriously weak and troublesome trans, throw a bunch more horsepower in front of it and your asking for problem. At least put a shift kit, another cooler (or 2) and an auxiliary filter in the trans for now, may help it last a little longer.
