I love my four banger I got roughly 300hp on carbs but this was my mini stock motor it's built and has four 44 mm one barrel carbs on it it will fly and smoke the tires like no joke and I got it set up right the only problem over EFI is I constantly haft to tune and sync the carbs together or it will run like crap I'm looking into a ninja turbo kit for it because the both have mikunis

as a fellow Mustang historian, allow me to clarify the long run of the 4 cylinder. It debuted on the Mustang II bodystyle in 1974 as the now well known 2.3 overhead cam. it continued as the base model engine until 1993. The way they talk...and ecoboost 2.0 will return in the 2015...but we shall see ;)

got no less than 15 books on the history of the Mustang, as well as every dealer brochure from 1964 1/2 until now....good reference material...LOL

Yep. Owned both a 1992 Coupe and convertible, and later a 1993 convertible. My first Mustang was a 1978 II hatchback with the 2.3 and 4 speed

I love my 2.3 Turbo LX. V8 eater. Running 15psi, it's awesome. Plus when I stay out of the boost I still get close to 30mpg. I paid $400 for the turbo Coupe. After selling body parts & scraping the rest I made $36 to pull the motor, trans, & rear. I paid $500 for the 89 2.3 lx. Got $200 for the old engine, trans, & rear. The extras are what cost me; 255lph hp fuel pump, billet AFPR, FMIC, and things of that sort. Got my cousin working on a front facing upper intake with a 70mm tb. Over the winter Boport Racing Head, stage 2 cam, 60lbs injectors, bigger turbo should put me around 400-500 HP. Can't wait. 2.3 power forever.

Speed cost money, that's the nature of the beast. I'm looking into a much lighter platform than a foxbody for the 2.3t. So I'm trying to save as much weight as possible. Less weight up top balances things out better.
