My car has a manual transmission.

A: Hello there, thank you for asking about you...

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.
