Default BEW / 05 Ranger automatic swap

I had this stripped out 05 Ranger from when we converted it to electric power and then sold the electric drive system.
The Jeep build http://www.cherokeeforum.com/f46/200...blacky-205238/ has gone so well that I decided to start on the Ranger and convert both side by side.
Both use the BEW engine.
The Ranger has a 5R44E automatic and the Jeep has the NV3550 standard.


Got the engine into the Ranger today and hopefully its in for good!


The Ranger will just be left stock other than a Malone stage 1.5 tune and a PD150 intake.
Is anyone selling those at a resonable price?

Here is the TDI block adapter in place.


Had to clearance the trans a bit for the starter drive.

Thanks A-man. I have been doing EV conversions for 25 years.
When your playing with that kind of power it has to be clean!

How are you going to control shift points on the transmission?

Not a clue. ;>)
On EV conversions I have had good luck keeping the stock Ranger ECU to run accessories and also have run automatics this way.
Usually just need a TPS and tack signal to run the ECU but each model and year is different so its trial and error, lots of error.

I'm subscribed. I really want to do a BEW swap in my 68 Jeepster and I want an auto trans. I'm super excited to hear how this goes for you.

Well it will go slow for a while. We sold some electric trucks this week so my projects will get booted out of the shop till those are built.
I'll try to get some time in on the weekends but that's usually pretty limited.

Baumann Transmission controller?

Are you going to run VW accessories or Ranger?

This is a great idea, I wish it was easier in California to do this kind of thing...

Finally got some time to build the accessory drive relocation bracket.
It worked out real well with the alternator no higher than the valve cover but the PS pump up a lot higher to clear steering parts.

Any updates? I have the donor car and I just bought my truck and am about ready to drop the hammer. I am going to run the 4.0 pattern for the bigger clutch.

For the record, a Ford 2.3 Duratec will weld solid 18 miles after the Quicky Lube forgets to put oil in it.

Yes, lots has happened just nothing worth posting about.
This truck had spent the last three years as one of our electric trucks.
We have spent the last few weeks putting all the gas parts back in like fuel tank and lines, cooling system, A/C system, exhaust system along with the PCM and all the engine wiring. Unfortunately we had a big cleanup about two years ago and all those parts went to the scrap yard.
Its been an adventure finding compatible parts as I think Ford changed the wiring layout every year.
This week we did get new exhaust and a fuel tank back in.
The rear axle has to be swapped for a stock one since the electric had 5:36 gears. Luckily that stock 4:11 axle is still here so its a quick swap.
