Just traded for my first Stang.

Hello!

I'm Alex, and I just traded for my first Mustang. It's a 1993 Fox Body. Quite frankly, I fell in love at first sight.

I come from the land of Hondas. That's what I was taught to work on, that's all I've ever really known. I've decided to make the jump though. After my '93 Honda Del Sol left me stranded three hours away from home, my buddy offered to swap me for his '93 Foxbody, and me, being fed up with the damn car, took it!

It's got a 2.3L in it, and I hope to drop a turbo in it soon.

Pretty excited!

Meet Lucy! She's slow as a bag of rocks, but I hope to fix that soon.

Welcome let me go ahead and just say if you want to turbo it your better off just to do a complete turbo motor swap ..turbocoupe motors are most common and can be found cheap
Also here's some sites that sell 2.3t parts
Singer performance .com
Boport.com
Esslinger racing
40bob.com

Thank you! And allegedly, this engine once ran a turbo. Would there be anyway to verify that? Because if it's already built for a turbo, I'll just find the stock kit parts.

Here's her heart! To be honest, I'm still very unfamiliar with these engines. Can anyone confirm the last owners suspicions?

Update! Turbo build is well under way. Oil inlet is ran. Manifold is fabricated. It's fun!
