So 2.3 arent fast. Their good cars. I guess you never met up with one that had a turbo and tuns of BOOST. The 2.3 turbo built correctly will Blow your mind. Hondas are not fast either. Mine dynowed at 400 HP. And my 2.3 dynowed at 443 HP. Dont bet on it.

he asked if a 2.3 was fast.. he never said anything about a power adder.. anything is fast with a turbo
exactly.... If a 2.3 is fast, there you go! I can say that I had a 77' 2.3l pinto that had 140 hp with a 4 speed. It was fast, it was killing the escort gt's.

John is running about 580 hp i think.(kind of a secret he wont tell us) My 2.3 does not run that fast. But its fast enough and its very streetable and gets like 24 MPG My honda is also very fast because its a D16 V tech turbo and its only 2200 LBS. Thats APP 5.5 LBS per HP. A 400HP chivelle at 4000 lbs is 10 lbs per hp. See how it works.

they are pretty slow because ford built them for some reason with upper end power-thats why they are gutless when you take off and seem to pick up a little in the higher rpms-but with a little imagination you can probably do little things to pep it up a bit
