Hey all. New to Corral but owned a supercharged 06 Mustang GT that I raced in college. Life took me places so I sold the car but missed the strip and working on cars. Enter the Danger Ranger. 86 Ranger XLT long bed with a coyote swap out of a 2014 F150. Currently 3.5 years into this build and just recently took it to the track for the 2nd time ever. Below are links to the full build threads thus far, as well as my youtube channel. Very excited to get some mods into the drivetrain this winter and get the ET down! Unfortunately I can't directly link the build threads or youtube, so you can find me on youtube by searching coyote swapped ranger on channel Kevin Sack.

New video is up


Below is the progress pic from the end of today. Just need to disconnect trans harness, trans mounts, and motor mounts and it will be ready to come up.

Hey everyone. Motor and trans were pulled Sunday so I can do cams and converter. It also gives me the opportunity to clean up the engine bay. Progress will be slow the next few months since I had knee surgery today. All is well but it will be some time before I'm able to work on the truck without hurting my recovery.

Whats up with that huge missing chunk of frame rail on the drivers side? More pics? Plans to reinforce?

My truck's sponsor, Auto Mafia Racing, crushed the 3.7 sealed motor record by a half-second over the weekend at Cleetus and Cars. The motor itself has 150k miles on it. He is the go-to guy for anything 3.7 and has competitive pricing on almost all brands of performance parts Support the small guy and tell him ksack sent you.

Hey friends! Been working hard at getting the winter mods into the truck. Today I'm at about 95% of the way to getting everything reinstalled in the truck so I can get in some test drives this holiday weekend. I now have a Circle D 3b converter (3500 stall), MSD 2-step, and an SFI flexplate. I'm hoping these help wake the truck up and bring down the atrocious 60' times I was getting on the stock converter. Below are a couple videos for your viewing pleasure. Help me out by liking and subscribing to my channel on Youtube.

Only able to get in 1 test drive this weekend. Making some tuning tweaks to hopefully bring this trans to where we want it. Tracks open in a month or so for TnT so the clock is ticking! Latest video below (includes a test drive!)

After some consideration, foot braking wasn't getting the full benefit of the new converter so I installed a transbrake today. Track opens in 3 weeks and I'm quite excited to test it out! Still working through getting the trans tune sorted out so hopefully it'll be reading for the first TnT of the season.

For those considering adding a transbrake to your 6R80, make sure to verify any labels provided by the manufacturer as the 3.7 harness differs from the 5.0 harness.

First TnT was today and boy was it an emotional roller coaster. If anyone knows how to disable a limiter within the tune that limits transbraking to 2500 rpm, I will be eternally grateful!

Hey everyone apologies for the long break! With corona closing tracks and me moving across the country, I didn't get much done truck wise. I'm now at sea level so I did an apples to apples comparison before tackling the cam sensor issue I've been having. Sorry for the shaky video in the beginning- a new GoPro is on my list of things to get! Hope y'all enjoy and if you enjoy the project, please consider subscribing for the Youtube Algorithm.

Friends,

I need some help. I've been trying to chase down a CMP sensor issue that I believe is the source of my not being able to get all the way up on the 2-step. I've run the diagnostic tree and it is failing a resistance test. It is supposed to read greater than 10K ohms, but I get 1.8K at the connector. I've isolated it down to the PCM, and am at loss currently. I tested different pins and was able to match the 1.8k resistance between the CMP pin and the grounds for the cowl harness. I'm concerned that the board got wet (see below) and is now bridging some connection that it should not be.

Can someone do me a favor if they have an 11-14 5.0? Measure the resistance between pin 42 on the engine (middle) connection, and pins 69 and 70 on the cowl (outer, same size) connection?



Here is a picture of the PCM when I removed the cover. Are those orange things signs of water intrusion? They feel like play-doh. I removed all of them and it made no difference.

Update to above. Looks like the stuff on the board is just extra paste that oozed through. Sometimes all you need is a second set of eyes. Still would appreciate a resistance test though.

Got a test back from someone. Same resistance...back to troubleshooting

Not the update I wanted to post, but here it is anyway...hoping the cops find it before I drop the $$$ on a new one when I get these electrical issues sorted out.

Hey friends, quick update. Trailer still hasn't been found. Over the MLK weekend coming up, I'm going to start stripping the truck to prep it for a local rod shop to do a full cage and front end build. Once it is back in the garage, the turbo build will finally start! Spent quite a few weekends trying to chase down why that cam sensor wasn't reporting and was never able to resolve it. Won't matter once it has a turbo cam and lockouts =D
