Find a junked SVO mustang, or a junked Turbo Tbird. Take your engine out and install forged pistons, and then swap over the turbo, exhaust, and fuel induction system, and then the Engine control system. It will give you an SVO mustang, or as we used to call them, "Super Stangs". Hold on when you hit the gas, becasue it will fly with that turbo. If you want to avoid pulling your engine out but going with a turbo, then go easy on the boost. The only difference between your 2.3L and a turbo2.3L is the Pistons. Yours are Cast, and the Turbo Pistons are Forged so the difference in strength will restrict the amount of boost you can add. The Fuel injectors for the Turbo are really big, as needed for the extra air, so not using them will also restrict the amount of boost you can add. I have a 93 Ranger with the 2.3L and I am looking for a blown 2.3LTurbo for cheap money. I want the extra power for towing, not racing though. When I get it finished I'll paint the words "Rocket Ranger" on the side just for kicks.
