Currently your engine only puts out 73hp @ 4000 RPM & Torque is 107 @ 2400 RPM

The 2.0 is an under bored 2.3 With the exception of the bore, the blocks are identical to all 2.3’s

A: how much boost can i run = more much HP can it take?

2.0 and early 2.3 cranks are identical. Late 2.3 cranks have smaller main journals.

I think the boost you can run on a stock engine is around 3-4

A t-bird 2.3 turbo coupe runs around 12

See my thing is that i want a carb..... and i don't think that the 2.3 turbo coupe had a carb.

When you say the 2.0L can only take 3-4 psi of boost what is limiting it to that?
