MOST OF ALL take a look at Speedway's stroker kit for the 2.3.....wanna hear the results before hand ? go to Utube and load 2.3 race engine...wow !
I have a 25 Ford TT truck and I was going to use the Pinto engine BUT I just found a 50 Merc flathead with a 3 speed overdrive tranny....both aint cheap to build.....good luck
I went the NA route on my 2.3l... its about the same cost as a turbo build and half the power. my mistake.
