put a engine in it because the kid before me overheated the car and froze the engine it sat so long
new front wheel bearings
rustproofed the udnerside completely
patched a few week spots with fiberglass
i did a lot of stuff tot to make it all work beacuse of the mess the orginal 2.3 and the one i bought see the one that's in it now comes from a 1978 ford of some kind.


As unfortuanlly as it is i have to drive it this winter but i got brand new copper weahter master snow tires on tonite and new fronts
on stock rims i painted black.

Unfortunately the 2.3 is probably a faster car.... I've got a 91 Mustang with a dual plug 2.3 engine, and AOD transmission. Not a bad driving car.

depends on how u drive your car it can be slower but then again if it was a turbo id say look out!

mines just basicly stock has the reg 2.3 c3 trans
the only performance on it is the cherrybomb exhaust muffler

The late 70s 2.3 liter engines put out about the same horsepower as the iron duke.

Had many of the 2.3 stangs. About 85-95 hp with the 2 barrel carb.

yah the turbo 2.3's got some power and dam if it don't make ya think a little its like our cars with v8's so light and small.
i would love to turbo this baby got factory manuals to install one but a bit pricey right now maybe someday then id stomp most ricers. if you shift this manually you can make it fly usually but i try not to so that i don't f up my tranny.

id like to see your bud's car rich got any pics?

Dude I got my 5.0 from actually sold it to me because he had built a 2.3 turbo.. said they can handle tons of boost stock..? No idea myself, I'll take the 5.0 for my 67, but.... sounded fun in a little light car.

Might consider building a natuarally aspirated 2.3 liter. We did one 20 years ago in a 79 Stang. The trick is to find a machine shop that builds 2.3s for the dirt track race folks. Our 2.3 had:

.030 over 10.0:1 TRW pistons
A Crane cam
Big Chevy valves in the head
ported and polished intake
a 2 Holley barrell carb from a 302 V8 (500 cfm I think)
An aftermarket header and low restriction exhaust

It turned about 180 hp on the engine dyno (about the same horsepower as the first year SVO turbo cars) and handed quite a few V8 cars their hats even with the stock C3 auto trans. The little sucker would even do an impressive burnout. Total cost in the engine at the time was about $1800.00. Best 1/4 mile time was 15.3 seconds (compared to 18 seconds stock).

My next project: A Cobra II Mustang with a newer 5.0 liter
