Turbo Ford Ranger Goes 175 MPH

A customized 1988 Ford Ranger has been given a small-block V8 and a massive turbocharger. This video shows the result of this combined madness.

It’s amazing what people are able to do with seemingly ordinary old cars and trucks. This 1988 Ford Ranger, for example, has been tuned to produce around 1,600 horsepower, but it’s said to be capable of an even higher output closer to 2,000 hp. Its stock engine has been swapped out in favor of a 375 cu. in. small-block Chevy V8 fitted with a massive turbo. The result is a quarter mile time of 7.91 seconds at 175 mph. Could this perhaps be the world’s greatest Ford Ranger? It's a distinct possibility.

Special thanks needs to go out to the guys over at 1320 Video for uncovering this beast at the Houston Performance Trucks (HPT) Shootout.
