Will the 200 I6 slugs fit right into the 2.3 HSC?
Since the 2.3L HSC pistons will drop right in the 200I6 with no modifications I would say yes the reverse should be true.
...So does chopping off the muffler and cats, and using a y-pipe to make dual exhaust. Sounds sweet!
the HSC and OHC are two completly diff engines the HSC has the intake and exhaust on the side. hsc is a pushrod eng and it never had an aluminum head. the aerostar used the OHC mostly with a 5-speed
Turbo aerostar anyone???
the 2.3L engine in the aerostar was the same engine found in mustangs, rangers and early bronco II 's. I had 1 for work. Talk about slow.
The 2.3 in the Aerostar is the EXACT same 2.3 Lima engine as the Ranger, Mustang/Capri , Pinto/Bobcat, Capri(import), Courior, Merkur XR4TI, Turbo Coupe, Mazda B2300, and several industrial applications. The header/manifold in question WILL bolt to the head of your Mustang. It may not fit around the frame work but I would love to find out. I was going to order a new one from Ford when I worked there , but found the price to be all too steep. If I remember correctly a New Pacesetter or other choice was less expensive. The 2.3 Aerostar does seem to be rare but they are in fact out there.
Hope to be My next Header
OK I feel better now, sorry for the rant
Anyone try this yet????????????? I'm still curious
Yep I brought it back from the dead
I saw a 2.3L in a scissor-lift. It was the newer block but it sure looked like it had been dropped in from my car.
That would be cool
The Turbo grocery-getter. kind of like the Porsche Cayenne. only cooler cause it's a ford
the 3.0L V6 used in the dodge caravan is based on the same block and crank as the Mitsubishi 3000GT. How about a 320hp twin turbo grocery getter
I dont believe my eyes...where DID THIS THREAD COME FROM!
