Boy oh boy! I hope everyone feels I have asked intelligent questions on here. I am one of a few on here just looking to add a little zip to my 4 cyl daily driver. I have a coherent plan that revolves around major head mods(I have a brand new dual plug head waiting for mods, just waiting on the purchase of a good air compressor)an efficient exhaust(I'm putting the exhaust on this month), and a modified intake(I'm currently studying the possible benefits of extending my runner length by employing machined aluminum spacers in conjunction with a 65mm TB)as well as a beefed up ignition system. This a muscle car does not make(and I've owned 3 V8 musclecars), but there again I'm just adding some efficiency/power to a car resigned to being a daily driver. I also am looking into(researching) building a turbo Ranger, so I get a lot out of reading the posts. I agree though that our 2.3 forum is kind of boring and I wish I had more quality content to add myself, but honestly my project is going a lot slower than I would like. But what it seems like to me is this, the norm seems to be that a 2.3l Mustang is a cheap car to buy, which is why it is attractive as a first car to the younger guys. They can't afford a V8, and can't afford to mod their 2.3s either, which it seems they have enough trouble just keeping on the road(these cars at their youngest  are 11 years old!). They think a lot of/about their cars, and sometimes in their zeal ask questions born of ignorance. But I see bhuffs point, sometimes I feel like I am visiting a bad repeat. By the way: bhuff, I was inspired by your car, I read up on it on that car site and am trying to model my vehicle after yours(but honestly I don't know when I'm going to be able to stuff some forged pistons in there, I'm hoping to get a 2.5l shortblock). Your car is what inspired me to get busy on my 'stang. Thanks!
