want to go fast in a ranger?? you'll need to drop a lot of cash or a V8 in it
another option? get a sports car and put a ranger emblem on it
in all reality though your best option is to swap engines, you didn't say what engine size you had, but a Ranger engine(any size) are not noted for being power-houses

I’m sorry for sounding completely ignorant to these things, let me rephrase. I do not expect my truck to do 190 on the autobahn. I’m not that naïve. What I would like, however, is to get more speed. Realistic speed of course. And yes look pretty doing it.
