    I know there is a ton of info on the Ford 2.3. That being said, I picked up a 2.3 that's been bored .040 and has a bit hotter cam for my speedster project. So, whos got pictures of their 2.3's? I need a little inspiration.

    Had a 2.3 turbo in a '79 Mustang Ghia. Do NOT let that engine idle too long at a time! The OH cam just runs in the parent metal of the head, no bushings. Not enough oil at idle will gall everything and wreck the whole thing. Had a couple of them do that. 351W fixed it!
