2.3 turbo head on N/A engine
P.S. I ran that Turbo head in my Mustang all day at 7600 RPM with a stock block, stock rods and pistons on a 70,000 mile motor without a worry in the world and never a problem.If anyone wants the exact info i did to the turbo head, please email me and i will send you all i have or answer any questions i can for you.[/quote]
I've got an '88 turbo head to put on an '88 Ranger engine and would like to take you up on your information offer.
I plan to use the stock ignition (maybe with the GM HEI modification), intake manifold, and fuel injection, and late model Ranger factory "header". Questions include: Do I have to use different pistons with this head? What about converting from hydraulic lifters? Are these heads as prone to cracking around the valves as N/A heads?
FWIW, I've been using the "Pony Stock, Mini Stock Racing Technology" book by Steve Smith as a reference but it doesn't say anything about the turbo head.
Also FWIW, the engine will be used in a '29 Model A Woodie replica based on Ranger donor parts.
Any assistance is greatly appreciated.
