#1. I am not arguing or trying to demean you or your car in any way.
I'm impressed that you are getting that kind of power out of it.

I know very well what a 2.3 can do if you put enough money into it.
I wasn't talking about the Coyote either.

I have an 86 GT 5.0 that puts out 405 HP at the crankshaft.
It weighs in at 2875 pounds and can still be made much lighter yet.
I have not installed my Novi 2000 SC yet.

You see where I'm going with this?

Hey, what type of diesel did the turbo come from?(year,engine,make,model) I was told that there is one that is easier to use on gas cars, something about the way it hooked up I think, I've been thinking about doing a diesel turbo on a 5.0, a guy near me had one and I heard it was a demon!

Yeah, gasoline is expensive.
I can get 22-24 mpg out of mine if I stay out of it and drive conservatively
