I've been introduced to the all powerful 2.3t

I originally wanted to build a 351 Fox Sleeper, but now I've decided (thanks to Tad) that a 2.3 turbo will be cheaper and easier to get good runs out of. It would be ideal if I could find an LTD or Fairmont but I've decided that's nearly impossible to get one even remotely decent. but rolling chassis fox mustang's are quite plentiful and cheap with little to no rust. After I have an engine in and running. With some help I hope to have alcohol injection and run up to 25 psi. (what else should I do so I don't blow headgaskets daily?). and what should I do to my frame and suspension? I figured I'd probably need subframe connectors.


Sorry, I'm a 'newb' so please don't make fun of me

Talking 2.3 power

The 2.3 is a beast as you found out. Its always better two do something different. Why alchohol, those things can handle 25 psi with some better forged internals with 94 octane and a good chip tuning. Also there is an available mass air conversion, good suggestion if want best performance/reliability.
