They may fit some aluminum heads without modification but not all. Both of my aluminum AFR heads needed a little mill time to provide clearance for the collector on the PS and for the flanged joint in the #5 primary on the DS. 




Can't say they don't look good but too much piping !


I have TtickFlow Aluminum Street Heads, and I believe they will not work with them.


Good to hear from you Bob !

Too much piping LOL
Thats true but its required to make 420 hp and have headers that fit the Gen II 4x4 engine bay

Thanks Scrambler82 you are correct, I had forgotten until I saw your picture. I too had to grind the TMH headers in the exact same locations to clear our ATK engine and its aluminum heads...

The picture is not mind, just a repost.
It is the engine bay and posted by V8 Level II !
Bob has done a lot of work to his LvL II, V* and TM Header included.
If you haven't looked up his tuck you should check it out.


One of the sweetest Rangers, period !


He also, has an upgrade in the works, not sure when it will arrive but if and when it does it will be a killer rig, if it isn't already !


I wish I lived closer to Ranger People that are doing Mods to their trucks, I need to get things done and I am slipping more and more into the Procrastination Mode.

I get ideas and the kick in the pant to do things to the truck from the Web also.
A good shop where you can go and talk about Mods and how to get around the emission thing would be good.

I cant get you around emissions, but I can do emissions legal conversions for CA :)
I heard Trump is gonna give CA to China and take that wall North so it may be a good time to re locate to a non emissions state LMFAO!!!!
My shop has a woodstove and chairs, I love to talk trucks! You just have to come up way North

Thanks for that !

My problem  is, as it stands now, I have a 5.0LW, built on a '93 spec., I think I need a newer motor than the truck... need a way to hide what it is... maybe program the engine computer to think it is a 3.0L, LoL !

Ok on CA being walled off, all I need is the government to buy my house for a good deal more than I paid for it and I will out of here !
I'm getting tired of the high cost of living !

I am contacting Robert today about picking up a new set of TMH for upcoming project. It has been a LONG time since I spoke with Robert I am looking forward to this!!

I did have to mill the headers in the exact same way as the post above when we fitted them to our ATK engine with aluminum heads. I had forgotten about that! Thanks V8 Level II
