any 2.3 until I believe 1993 you will have to use your oil pan but they all will bolt in there. Later BObby

I live in between springfield mo and west plains almost in direct middle. yeah some of the rangers had 2.0 the only difference between it and a 2.3 is it is debored and it can not be made to a 2.3 by boring it. there is a difference in the heads on which ones are better but they will all work in your pinto
