    Well as u know im new here, well not on stangnet but on the 2.3 side. I have a 88 lx 5.0 and now I picked up a 91 notchback thats calypso green for 200$. The first thing i wanted to do was another 5.0 efi swap with a t5 and 8.8 rear. Then it changed to a 302 carb'ed with a SROD tranny and a 8.8 with 3.27 gears. Now for some reason the little all mighty 2.3 comes to mind. After I drive my firends evo8 around and love the turbo feel the 2.3 is my new idea and now I want a 2.3 t in my car haha. So anyways before I give u my life story lets see some pics of your cars, with engine bay pics also with what u have done to it and how u like it. Thanx guys :D

    I'd post a pic of my motor-in-progress but it's just a long block at the moment and I don't have any good pics.

    So I'll post this picture: the bottom end of that engine with my custom windage tray on it.

    I assume you are talking to me???

    http://projecthp.ford23.com/svo.html

    All the info is there...stock ride height, it's now got 17" wheels and tires though...

    I built the IC tubing, it's 3" to the TB and 2.5" from the turbo. Aftermarket Turbo, one of my Stinger Performance headers, etc.

    Dr...I've got a blow thru vam on it so I wanted it to be before the vam...in your case (stock vam) it really doesn't matter either way...works pretty much the same. I'm probably gonna mount the BOV on the LX near the turbo just to see if it gets rid of the trailer hitching I had under certain conditions with it near the TB.

    All you 2.3 ford guys are great help. I've noticed that most of you used to own Probe/MX6. That makes me feel warm and fuzy. Mazda is 40% Ford anyways. I wish we had RWD...

    Here's what I had in mind to do with muh turbo tbird. Right now efverything is on hold. I have invested way too much money in my Fazda's.heheh..

    No former Probe or MX6 ownership involved here for sure.
