FYI the turbo 2.3 have forged pistons. But they are dished. My svo mustang had 2.3 turbo in it. in 86 it was faster than the v8. Made over 300 hp with stock turbo and head gasket.

Ford motorsports makes a great roller cam for the n/a 2.3

If your serious I know someone with an after market 2.3 liter head. Not sure if its for sale but I know you cant find them anywhere. Not like this. But also totaly custom. Stock intake and exhuast does not bolt up. WIth the head and the 2500 kit I here they can make almost 300 puppies without the turbo if built right. One thing is for sure that engine will take some abuse.
