Someone on Ebay is selling a
"Brand New 2.5 Ford Ranger SOHC cylinder head. This cylinder head fits 1998 - 2001 Ford Rangers with the SOHC engine. This cylinder head has 2 plugs per cylinder (8 plugs total). These heads have the SMALL springs. Casting number for this cylinder head is: F5. This head is an aftermarket cylinder head, much thicker in all the critical areas. Much improved casting over the factory Ford heads. ". $399
Anything to gain from just throwing this on a stock 2.3n/a without porting and the 2.5 intake and TB? I know the cam is roughly the same as mine.

2.5 Ranger intake
I have a Ranger 2.5 intake. Motor is stock. Aside from UDP headers and exhaust and 17lb Bosch injectors. Has an SVO 5spd swap and 3.73 gears. I'd like to have it ported before installing it and half shaft the TB. In the future i would like to step up to a 2.5 ported head as well. Question is do i just need to match the upper to the lower and gasket match the head ports? Not trying to build a race motor, just my work car. I have a 92 5.0 Tbird and a 90 Olds that are fast enough for me. Just like driving this car a few days a week. Don't mind sending the intake out to have it done, i never seem to have much time and things don't get done. Next mod may be a BO-Port head if that's not going overboard for a street daily driver.
