2.3 turbo identification

Does anyone know how to identify a 2.3t from a 2.3n/a? Any number or letters on the block to be looking for?

2.3 turbo identification

A 2.3 T has a turbo sitting on it and the N/a doesn't. Just pop the hood.

If you check out Turbo ford.com and SVO forums , there is specific differences on the short block. The one I am familiar with is, a oil drain from the turbo enters the block on the right hand side just behind the motor mount. The regular block was not drilled and tapped for the 3/8 pipe fitting.

totally agree with 93Z. You could either identify it by just looking or by driving the car and search for the Piu sound
