Gimme about 4 weeks to 6 weeks and I'll give you a general idea. I just got done swapping in my 2.3T. We're adding the boost controller and fuel pump this weekend and are gonna crank it up. Shortly after I will take my car down and get it dyno'd and post the results on here so you can see what it took for me to get where i'm at and go from there.

491... got proof? I know you got alot of work in your Car Turbo but.. Would be nice to see a print out or something.

And V8 owners.. I wish I could join them. Haven't been comin across and 5.0L Mustangs that aint goin for insane price or beat to **** here locally. they all want either 11g+ for a foxbody.

i have a dyno print out at he shop, but the 2.3 is out. a valve stuck and the piston hit it and broke and ****ed everything up so out it came. im gonna buy a Esslinger or ford racing 2.5L block prolly amd go bigger. theres a bunch of guys on turboford who make crazy HP past 500 on these 2.3's

question:
then i call a bluff till I see it. How do I not know Turbo's lil hot rod isnt like mine :p
answer:





unless this is a pic of someone elses car. but assuming that it belongs to turbo, i'd say that this picture should be evidence enough. :D
