Forged rods crank and better pistons would be key

You can run a turbo on a stock 2.3 but will not be able to run much boost from it

Im thinking no more than 6 on a stock 2.3 may be a tad high but not much higher

I have seen on ebay forged 2.3 rods cranks before

Or look at these places

Speedwaymotors.com
