Sorry, but I must disagree.The Mod Motor is very wide however that is only the case up top. The block is narrow and the Cobra manifolds or FMS shorties tuck in quite well and should allow plenty of room for the steering shaft. The width of the top of the engine should only be a concern in the area of the brake booster and heat/ air conditioning housing. The frame should be of no concern because it is well below where the heads will be and there are no shock towers as in the Mustang to limit space. All in all, I think there is more room in the Ranger engine bay.
I may get into doing some of these swaps and provide some custom engine mounts if there is enough interest.
