2.3 Turbo

I found a nice deal on a turbo and heard that you have to have forged pistons in your motor or you could run the risk of cracking them. And I was just wondering if the 93 2.3's have forged pistons or not. And if they will in fact crack or not.

I don't know if they came with forged pistons but you also need a lower compression ratio, around 8.2-8.5 to be safe.

Re: 2.3 Turbo

it would probably be better to either sell your car and buy an SVO (with the turbo), or buy a motor and swap it into your car.

Re: 2.3 Turbo

That's what I planned on doing but seeing as the car is not in my name I can't sell it and my mom won't sell the car either.
