Yeah! I love it.. It also needs work.. I need to change the Motor and Tranny mounts. that I know of and some other minor thing. Is it lifted at all?

I think they're pretty sick little trucks! I wish they had some more power but it works and runs great.

I have not seem many mounts go bad. Especially all 3. Double check them before replacing. Spend your tine and money in a codereader and maintenance

They are cheap and that does sound like a bad mount. I just doubt they are all bad. Does the shifter seem a little loose all the time?

No the shifter isnt.. I only bought the motor mounts and I'm gonna replace those and if it is still doing the same thing then ill replace the tranny mount.

If the shifter moved all the time then it would be this ball thing at the top of the tranny. Does sound like a mount and if one goes bad and is not changed it stresses the others. I just mentioned it cause I don't see many fail. Do you know about rockauto.com? it is a great site!

The only turbo that works well on the 2.3 is out of a old thunderbird!

When you say that do you mean cause you can swap the manifold and stuff... I dont have experience boosting Ford but I helped a few friends with there Honda B series and Mazda speed setup and there is alot option. We even slapped an old tdi turbo on a civic for fun with no intercooler and still run to this day but burn alot of oil.
