To be honest, I'm not a carb guy. I know guys that run them, they are not cheap from what I have been told. I was looking at the turboford site last night and saw that there were several guys selling stock parts. If it was my car, here is what I would do. First off, figure out what kind of fuel system is being used. Is it running off of the stock fuel pump with a regulator to bring the pressure down? I would convert it to AN lines, run a megasquirt stand alone ecu, gutted and rotated upper intake, and put a front mount on it intercooler on it. That would put you around 300 hp out of that little 2.3.
