how do you think a slightly modded 94 2.2 auto would fair up against a ford ranger 4 banger?

You'll probably take em, when you're dealing with engines this small and autos...its gonna be friendly anyways, just race em and get it done....you'll probably win anyways

wanna know how to beat this guy real cheap ...simple stuff
1) take about 10 lbs of air out of each rear tire and make your front tires sit at about 40 lbs of air pressure

2) remove tailgate

3) stock intake?? remove the front cover of the air cleaner it self fully exposing the air filter zip-tie the air filter to the housing this will allow for more air flow instead of through that small ass hole in the radiator support

that will give u a bit of an advanatage

I whooped my friends ass in his '98 2.5L Ranger and all I had at the time was an Intimidator intake. I have exhaust now though, so i can really rape him now.

Well, when i went to my cousins muffler shop to get a Flowmaster put on, he couldn't get one with the right size in/outlets form anywhere locally, so he just put a cheap one on called Mellotone. It doesn't sound as good as a Flowmaster. I had a Flowmaster 50 Series on my old '97 2.2. It sounded good. There wasn't a noticable power increase, but I didn't notice a decrease either.

Check this out I got great torque and horsepower on my 2.2 when I put a stainless muffler off of a 91 Dodge Ram 5.9 360 I love it got good tone not too loud. but it sounds faster than hell. :scary:

I whooped a '94 4.3 last night, Twice. I think he just really sucks at driving too though, so that helped me out.

One of my friends has a 96' ford ranger with a 3.0 V6 in it. I raced him and i whooped him pretty bad. His ranger is also stick. This just shows what the 2.2 chevy can do.:thumbup:
