The 4bt Cummins would make an excellent transplant... and should have tons of power even stock in a ranger!!!!

You can buy a Ranger NEW in Europe with a Diesel stock. You might want to check into seeing if you can find one of those ???

The ranger with a 4bt was in Diesel World a couple months back I believe.

Yeah i would hate to try to import one. I drove a couple of those when I was in Iraq and those are turds...The reason I was thinking Jetta was they have all kinds of moods for them..

You can get 4bt cheaper and plenty of adapters/mounts are available.
