Hello All,

Picked up an 86 Mustang GT Hatchback last fall and just starting to get into it now that the weather is warmer and there is some money free. It has been swapped to a 2.3L Turbo from a 86 Turbo Coupe. Need to do a head gasket before I know much more as I know the car smokes and the PO thinks it is a head gasket. Planning on doing that next weekend, and in the mean time, poke around reading all that I can.

A gt swapped to a 2.3 Turbo...that's a new one!

As for the smoke- if there's no coolant in the oil or oil in the coolant and the car runs good, there's a good possibility the smoking is caused by the turbo. When I had my old Turbo Coupe I was always having problems with oil getting past the turbine side oil seal into the exhaust, causing a smoking issue at idle.
