Newbie starting a turbo 2.3 build
#1

Hey folks. Got myself a 98 Ranger with a 2.3, and an 88 Thunderbird turbo coupe that is going to be sacrificed to turbo up the Ranger

Interested in selling it before you tear it apart? I've been looking for a white or blue TC lol

I have a 2.3T motor + cash for the car if you're interested

also would just buy the complete roller if you're set on using that motor and trans

It would probably be cheaper to fly up and drive back! After all......it's only a 2,562 mile, 40-hr one-way trip, lol! Big Grin

Getting it shipped freight might be affordable. It would take months. But are there really no turbo coupes closer?!

I'm also starting to second guess wanting to do this. Not sure it's going to be worth the trouble.
I haven't pulled any parts yet, and just driving the Ranger as my daily.

very rarely pop up for sale in FL, I'm specifically looking for a white 87/88 or any color 83-86
