I've never driven a 2.2, but my friend has a 3.0 and the 4.3 stomps 3.0 ranger ass all day long so I know they're pretty slow.

I'm not sure, but I think you might have a good chance of taking him with those mods but it'll probably be close. :)

top end you wil get spanked!!! As for the 4cyl keeping up. WOnt happen. I had a 2.2 4cyl 5spd X reg cab w/KN intake, flowmaster muffler went good for a 4cyl but my new 4x4 v6 ext cab ranger WALKS all over it. Sorry but I have to admit that one even though I LOVE CHEVY

Yeah the 3.0 will beat you. I have a question. Whats faster a 2.2 S-10, a 2.5 or a 2.3 ranger? Thanks.
yikes just get out and run....i had a 92 2.4 ranger and it was hands down the slowest thing on the road....i could hang with a metro for a lil while but not long :) so i'd venture to say the 2.2 and 2.5 would be a very close race.....it would come down to weight and mods probably

Top end ranger will win!! However the 2.2 and the 2.5 would be close. My dad had a 99 ranger 2.5 5spd and I had a 2.2 5spd with muffler and k&n intake and his seemed to have more snap to it. WE both got ride of out rides and got 2002 ranger ext cab 4x4 v6. and by far WAY faster than both of the 2.2 and 2.5(obviosuly)

What about the Dakota 4 bangers? I raced one with a 318 last night from a light, and to my surprise I beat him. I took it to about 80 and let off because I had about a truck on him. And yes I know it was a V8, I asked.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Yeah right. A 2.2 beating a 3.0? With the mods he has there's no way. The RANGER would kick his ass. But don't take my word for it race him and tell us what happens.

u should try the dakota v6....they are really slow too....people around here like to pull the v6 badge off so u think it might be a v8 but the 4.3 walks all over there v6

My 2.8 5 speed with bald tires completely stomps my brothers 5 spd dakota. mind you his truck is an 87 with the 2.2 but he is a mechanic and says that if he cant afford to buy a new r/t then he'll just put a 5.9 in it. I think i still might tak him with my 350 tpi thats goin around christmas I'm rebuilding it now:)

my 4.3 will blow away 4.0 rangers... anyday... but why... they have 20 more horses than a stock 4.3 and the torque is only 10 or 15 FT LBS diff... why are they so much slower..
