Q: Q: More power

asked by on

Hi i have the ford ranger 2006 2.5 td xlt double cab. What can i do for more power? I dont have a obd2 computer plug so i can not chip it for more performance.

My car has 211000 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.

Hello there, thank you for asking about your 2005 Ford Ranger. This is not an engine size or type used in our American version of the truck and I can only recommend having the intake system opened up with a larger air filter housing and a cooler for the intake air. The other option is to get a larger exhaust system to lower back pressure. You may want to check online for a performance chip that can be inserted into the engine computer to increase performance.
