ok so i have an 86 ranger with the old 2.0 1bbl carb that i recently blew something on..instead of trying to figure it out and fix it i was thinking of dropping a 2.3 turbo out of a tbird...this should bolt up to my tranny no? i understand i would have to get the ecu and wire harness for the motor as well, but also would i be able to put a bigger turbo on a 2.3 turbo with minimal adjustments?

I just helped a guy do a swap on a 93 ranger. We put an 88 T/C motor in it. You can but a larger turbo on them. You should upgrade the injectors when you do this. When you put larger injectors in the old T/C systems you will need a wideband 02 sensor and the spring in the VAM needs tweaked till you get the right a/f ratio.

Yea I am using the stock block and the stock 5spd tranny. Holds up very well to the HP I think it will be ok up till 450HP.

I am using a RFL BOV I put it real close to the TB after the intercooler. I checked with a wide band o2 sensor and I don't have a prob with it going ritch when it opens. They only open for a short time, I was going to use a bypass valve but after the BOV worked ok with no probs I am going to stay with it.

The RFL is very loud, right now when it opens after boosting 25psi you can hear it very well a 1/4 mi away.


Here are some videos I got last sat 5/13/06 at a ranger meet in OH.

They are at the botom on the right of this link. http://www.rangersrevenge.com/ab_003.htm

You may want a wide band 02 sensor. Yea you could probably get by with that. Would not be a bad idea to have a sct dealer tune it in with a dyno some time. I use the compleat pro racer pack with the xcal 2 it gives me a lot more options in tuning.

The stock injectors will work with the larger turbo. The T3/T4 upgrade is common. 400 hp has been made with the stockers, but two pumps were used to raise the pressure. Click the image to open in full size. jd
