    I came a cross a deal too good to pass up and would like to hear from you guys. Will the system fit my truck? Will it be bad to run an intake system that size? Maybe with some modifications?

    even if you got it to fit. your truck would run too lean and could burn holes in your pistons. my friend did a very similar set up on his ranger and after 30,000 miles the pistons were toast. i dont recommend it

    Not sure what year Ranger it was, but today computers prevent pistons from burning up. Your truck can never run too lean or too rich, unless there is a problem. I have a cai, but the truck can only run as good as the MAF allows it. Basically you introduce as much air as possible and hopefully get the cleanest burn allowable. It allows the engine to breath that much better. Restrictions are put in place due to government regulations.

    i will work...as long as you can make it physically fit, which might include making cuts to the piping to change the angles or changing it so you can add your IAT sensor <- (i think thats what it is..haven't looked) and such...but its not going to hurt your motor in any way. its not forced induction so the motor is only going to take in as much air as it needs.

    edit... in actually looking at a 4.0 intake i doubt it will physically work because i believe it is shorter than our intake. The 4.0 intake is on the left side of the motor where as the 2.7 is on the top..back right side.

    True, I didn't even think of that.
