Who wants to meet up this weekend? Just gauging interest to see locations of people who would like to meet up and then we can pick a location centralized for everyone. I'm in Tulsa myself, thought about having a little burgers and brats type deal at my place. Let me know what you all think

Your body style just begs to have a 5.0 stuffed under the hood. I have been looking around for one, but haven't found any that had a solid body yet.

If you have a 2.3 straight 4 then all you need is a front or hood mont inner cooler t3/t4 turbo and a turbo manifold a turbo oil pan and all you have to do to the block is put turbo pistons in it. Everything else in the block should hold about 700 hp. And a tougher transmission to hold the extra power from the turbo.

You still have to get all the wiring connections and a new ecu and the ecu is about 600$

You still have to get an ecu for it bc the original ecu for the truck won't take a turbo tune. And the wiring is still the same you might have to buy a harness for the wiring. And a downpipe. It's cheaper to do it if the motor is cheap. But if you build the one you have in it now then it would have the potential to be more powerful and quick.

I'm buying the whole car not just the motor. It will be cheaper to do this than buying the turbo kit.
