Retro fit SVO mustang or turbo coupe parts.

Have you looked over at www.TurboRangerForums.com ?? TONS of info can be found there. Most guys don't build up 2.5's, they end up building 2.3's with forged bottom ends. Some run a 2.5 head because of the flow characteristics.

have not heard of the site, but ill check it out. and i was just seeing if there was very much of a 2.5 turbo world. why the 2.3 and not the 2.5?
will it basicly fit the same and plug into the stock harness?

My first guess is availability. 2.5's were only found in 98-01. OH....for what it's worth...the 01+ 2.3 Duratechs are totally different than the 2.3/2.5 Lima engines.

I don't know much on the subject, I'm just learning. I intend someday to build my own 2.3T and in the very least, help by brother build his. The guys over at TRF are a pretty cool group of guys always willing to help new guys just starting to learn.
